Some Resolutions

Okay, I'm not really one for New Year's resolutions. But since this will be a big year for me, and after a day of lazy overindulgence, thought I should set some.

First, I need to spend my computer time a little more productively. Less computer games, more time online. Still working on this blogging thing, but I think a set schedule of five times a week might help me out.

Since my first book is tentatively scheduled for October, I need to work on a second one!

More time for reading. I picked up several new books last month and there's several series I want to start.

And a fun personal goal - I want to become proficient on the guitar. Been playing for three years now and I practice every day. But I'd like to get through a whole song without a mistake!

There's my goals and resolutions for this coming year. Going to dive right into the blogging one tomorrow, too. Anyone else starting the new year with a resolution?

I've been NY's resolution free for years now, but I do set goals. Yours sound like good ones.

Not me. I know what I have to do. My attitude is out with the old and in with the new. I have to accept that certain endeavors will not work out and I need to treat them as sunk costs, as write offs, regardless how appealing they may appear.

Now I can focus on new things without these balls and chains slowing me down.

Tell you what, let me know how much time a week you spend on the guitar and I will match you on my bass guitar. Of course I am utterly rubbish but hey. :)

You left a comment at my Weekly Roundup. So I have had a look at your blog.
I read the blurb of CassaStar over at Dancing Lemur Press. I would like to know whether it is a YA novel or not.

Resolutions are difficult. I posted mine Bona Fide: Welcome to 2010

Anyway fingers crossed and good luck for your book.

Haglerat, we should play! I average 7-10 hours a week right now.

ediFanoB, it's a coming of age story, so will probably be YA sci-fi. But I've not received final confirmation on that yet...
