This time last year my husband was on an emergency heat call at a Chinese restaurant in Vermont. I’d been reading a few blogs and, left to my own devices while the rest of the world partied, I set up my own blog. I did a test post on Dec 31, but my first “official” blog entry ever was on Jan 1.
A lot of great stuff happened in 2005, not the least of which was Twice Upon A Roadtrip. But in looking back over the year, I’m pretty unhappy with myself and how much time I squandered. While it may look okay on paper—Twice Upon A Roadtrip sold and released, Forever Again and 72 Hours sold and releasing in 2006, and one other project which isn’t quite official yet—in realityRoadtrip contracted in January and everything else was post-September or so.
So 2006 is the year of time management and discipline for me. I’m not going to make any resolutions as to writing X number of pages per day or X stories per year or spending X hours per day at the computer. My kids and my husband’s business require too much flexibility on my part for that and I’d be dooming myself to failure.
So instead of a resolution, I have a 2006 slogan: Feed Your Editors.
(I actually made three other resolutions over at Anna’s blog. :grin:)
