(2017-1) Put out a f#$%ing DMCD book!
Oof: straight failure on this one. Perhaps I didn’t stratify the sub-goals properly; i.e. my sub-goals—practice visual art, dedicate time to taking and editing pictures—weren’t specific, nor did they give me a series of delineated steps to get from A to Published.
(17-2) Publish game by July 2017.
Double failure. Eeesh.
(17-3) Commit to at least one social media post per week.
I almost got this one! Oct and Nov were bad months for me, in terms of general well-being and activity.
What lessons did I learn from 2017’s resolutions? One cannot simply make a statement and expect it to occur. I’ll make my 2018 resolutions granular, make each step incremental.
(2018-1) Write 500 words a day. A picture counts its traditional thousand, and I’ll say that editing 1000 words counts for the daily 500 too.
(2018-2) Weekly social posts. Some weeks they’ll be straightforward ancts/updates. Other weeks, they’ll be parts of a new academic-ish series of essays. Stay tuned next week (7 Jan 2018) for more on that!
(2018-3) Once a month, contact podcasts, book clubs, bookstores, or any other place at which I could stage a reading or Q&A session. Gotta network.
What’re you doing for your 2018 resolutions?
