Post New Year's..errr....post....
Yeah, anyway.....first post of the new year. Hopefully the first of many.
I was a tiny bit proud of having more writing blog entries this year than last. Though, to be fair, I did split some of my writing time between my other blog and this one, so that should be taken into consideration.
Overall, I think it's been a decent year in regards to writing. I've been writing more this past year than the year before, as well as (still) working on my 2011 NaNoWriMo project. Editing is a bit tougher than I thought....just sayin'.
Speaking of NaNo, it wasn't a stellar year for me in that category. I started on track and quickly fell off the boat. I could blame it on a busy month, but that's not being totally honest. There were a lot of times I could have been writing, but didn't want to put forth the effort. It also didn't help that I switched ideas at the eleventh hour, leaving behind all my preparation for one story for another that I thought would be more interesting....but wasn't. I mean, I might keep the kernel of the idea, but the overall execution of the idea wasn't as "neato" as I had hoped.
I don't really do resolutions, per se, but I do look for ways I can improve in the upcoming year.
I think I'll keep it simple again, this year as the year before that, in that I'll just try to Be Better.
A better husband, a better friend, a better person, and a better writer.
It's called the past for a reason....it's behind us. It's now time to look forward.
Now, on to adventure!
