Oh, why, hello there, neglected blog. It has been far too long (and I know this due to the fact that I actually had to sign in when returning to post... goodness).
I hope everyone out there had a wonderful holiday season and a lovely New Year and made (and then promptly broke) their resolutions. I know that one of my resolutions was to pay attention more to this blog, and we all saw how well THAT worked out. Ten days into the new year, and I'm just getting around to posting.
Anyway, I am slowly climbing back on board the motivated, get things done train (not that I ever really left, I was just sidetracked in a different car). And, as a quick update, here are the things I have planned for this year:
1. Finish EMT class already (jeez). I spend way too much time focused on studying for this class because I want to actually be good at what I set out to do, and then I try TOO hard (does that make any sense?). I am quickly approaching Interim test 2 of 3 for the class (right after the Ob/Gyn section... babies... I don't know how I feel about that... it looks... sticky), and I test out at the very end of March. Wish me luck. I plan on kicking that test's ass.
2. Completely overhaul HAREM. I spent a lot of time thinking about the story and where I want it to go, and I figured out that if it's going to start looking anything like what I expect it to be, that I need to overhaul it, and restructure the story. Mostly, I think this will be accomplished by adding in a few more story arc points and twists and turns. In other words, more excitement. In further words, more work.
3. Attempt to finish entire rough manuscript of HAREM by the end of the year. As long as I get my butt in gear, I really don't see why this isn't possible. I will be working on a bit of a 3-month handicap (because I know I won't be able to fully devote my attention to it until EMT class is done), but I will try my hardest to accomplish this.
I think that's a good starting point for goals. I'm also thinking about working on a few other ideas I have bouncing around (namely, AWIXA and PERCHANCE TO DREAM), but we'll see what my time schedule shapes up to be.
Wish me luck!
