w00t Day

Oh man, let's face the fact that I am just not good at weekends. I have limited internet and tend to hibernate. But I'm here, and guess what? YOU ARE ALL SO VERY AWESOME!

OVER TWELVE AND A HALF MILLION WORDS! It's kinda freaking amazing that we can quantify our awesome like this!

Now, on to the important things! How are you going to be awesome this year? This month? This week? Are you ready? Are you braced? How are you going to make 2017 awesome!

I am starting by cleaning out my craft closet, and perhaps getting the laundry out of it. *headdesk*

2017 is so going to be our year!!!


DCC for this week will be
Jan 3rd - slashluv18 (I know it's late, but give yourself 24 hours from reading this)

Jan 5th - thtwzjustadream
Jan 6th - kaige68

this week/month is mostly going to be rp writing I think...and probably final edits to 2 separate books (with the intent of taking notes to plot out their sequels)

For the year...hmmm...I'd like to get those 2 sequels written...perhaps part 2 of the NaNo project, another draft and final edit of the NaNo book, a second (and perhaps final) edit of another book...and if I'm really lucky start the next book in that series.
Busyness, for sure...but at least part of that list can be accomplished.
We'll see how it goes.

For this year, I want to try to be more involved in the comm. Life got crazy last year and I kind of went MIA, but I really miss being around and being part of things. Balance is hard, but I think I can find it!

In terms of writing, I have a million WIPs so I really want to try and finish some of them. So many of them are even plotted. I just need to get out of my own head, pick up a pen (well, figuratively, anyway. More like, open a Word doc) and just write.

This you can do! I know it! If we can do anything more for you, give us a holler.

Looking forward to having you around more!

My goal for this year is to take it one day at a time. I have a bad habit of looking too far into the future and freaking out because of it.

Hah - I can relate to the laundry though. Mine's all in a laundry basket in the bedroom and the cat has decided to make a bed out of it. *snort*

My goal for this year is to write a hundred words a day. Hopefully, this will clear out my WIPs and get me more words for the year.

Today, I have to do the housework I've been putting off.

OMG. I lost track of the number of *head desks* last night - I think I committed every writing sin with my first scene on 2015's NaNo - but had a mini breakthrough and wrote 400 words towards fixing :) This year is going to be all about the revisions and of course a new NaNo in Nov. I've adjusted my word count goals accordingly and will buy plenty of aspirin.

It's new territory for me - so scary and exciting at the same time.

*takes a breath*

Firstly, the major plan for 2017 is to sell our house and buy a bigger place (I know, crazy after we expanded a few years back... but something newer with a double internal-access garage would be nice too!). So that means more decluttering and tidying the place up, which could slow down writing plans, but here's hoping...

Then, for writing, I had intended to aim for 200 words per day (which is 73K) but considering I only managed 40K this year that could be a little ambitious... so I'm just going to do my best to get either 200 words or two icons per day, and keep the graphic count as part of my overall aim (I haven't tended to take that seriously in previous years, though it has been counted, obviously!).

I really want to finish off as many WIPs as I can, and not start so many new things, so there's that as well. I would love to end the year on fewer WIPs than I currently have, which is around 14, I think!

Oh, and Kaige, you and I should either finish those stories we started or choose to dump them now, so I can stop counting them as something I need to finish! ;-P

I'm going to try to be more present this year and do things. 2016 just took a lot out of me. I was moved to a new area at work and it is exhausting.

Ugh.

My primary goal for this year is to get through this semester with my sanity relatively intact, and decide if I am going to keep working at this school come summer.

My secondary goal is to not let the job drain me so much that I never do the things I enjoy (aka fandom).

My tertiary goal is to get my 250,000 words out for here and GYWO. I didn't quite manage 200,000 last year, and there were several months where I didn't write at all (see above re: work), and I was quite hard on myself for it. I will make it this year!

Anything else like finishing WIPs (which I intend to do) and the like is just gravy!
