I meant to do something like this last month, and then… I guess I forgot about it. Thankfully, Erin reminded me. So, instead of having some New Years Resolutions at the beginning of the year, which probably won’t be fulfilled—and, over the course of the year, might even be changed—it makes more sense to do it month by month.
As I said, I forgot to do it last month, but…. I did accomplish a few things last month. I think I’ve written roughly 15-20k, in various stories, which I’m happy with. Not as much as I’d like, but, hey. After all of the stress I had at the beginning of the month, it’s actually pretty good. I’m learning German, and though I can barely pronounce any of it, I think that’s going okay; my mom got me onto Pinterest, so I’ve wasted quite a few hours looking at mostly fandom-related things (Doctor Who and Sherlock related, mostly);I’ve watched the newest three BBC Sherlock episodes (and it’s annoying me that I don’t know anyone to fangirl at, aside from my mom, which seems kind of awkward); and… oh, and my baby brother appears to now be calling me Cookie (before, it was Nanny, for whatever reason… I have no n‘s in my name).
Aside from that, January has been pretty uneventful. Unless I forgot some stuff, which wouldn’t surprise me.
Anyway. February. For the moment, I want to start off with something simple.
- Write another 15k. Hopefully, I can write some short stories or something, too, but for the moment, I don’t care what I write, as long as I do it.
- Draw more. I doubt I’m going to be able to draw something as awesome as Erin’s lion, but the last time I had inspiration to draw something was….. November? No, sorry, it was December. Right after Christmas.
No wonder I don’t seem to be improving…
- Do the exercises that my therapist told me would help with my back, and do it more often then just when my shoulder’s killing me.
- Stay off the computer and Internet a little bit more. If it’s possible.
And that’s about it. Shouldn’t be too hard, should it?
