New Years Resolutions: I Resolve To...  
  • Stop being overly-sensitive and learn to speak up for myself more often. Or just learn to ignore non-constructive critisism.
  • Make a better attempt at losing weight because last year's excuses just aren't going to cut it.
  • Believe in myself more as a writer. Out of Reach went over pretty well, and I did that all on my own, so maybe it's safe to believe that I really am pulling my own weight.
  • Actually finish Little Secrets before the end of February. And make the ending something amazing.
  • Go forward with the other installment to the Out of Reach universe and finish it, then write the other two/three oneshots for the Baby, It's Cold Outside-verse to close that one. I will finish these two AUs with only that amount of chapters. Before the summer. I hope.
  • Push myself farther, writing-wise, on Heirs to the House of El than I did in Little Secrets. As well as I've done here, let me get braver.
  • Not drive Anissa absolutely batshit over deadlines. Even if you still will have them.
  • Actually get some work done on Dark Rising and see if we can get this baby published since we have so much manuscript.
  • Meet Margot this time. And not act like a spaz by crying and getting nervous. And remember to get her to sign Sophie's sketch.
  • Be a better friend.
  • Get out of this town and this house before I go insane after eight years of 'Next year we'll move'.

*looks up at her list* Okay, that'll do. And this year, I'm really going to try, since I honestly mean all of those things.

I wish you lots of luck on these -- they all sound like great ideals!

Yep, now it's just a case of turning them into reality.

Thanks for the vote of confidence! *hugs*

Wow, your first three nearly the same as mine would be if I were doing them. Plus some 'Stop procrastinating' and 'Stop being terrified of the future or actually do something about it.'

So, more writing. Sounds good ;) Also, it's not as if I know anything about your and Anissa's writing habits, but I'm sure you can pull your own weight - I liked Out of Reach just as much as any of your other work, and you know, writing is really a process. Look back at something you wrote years and years ago and you'll feel much better, guaranteed :D

Anissa and I talked a little bit about TFTM on the way to work and I'm feeling pretty confident about it at the moment. Although we both need to rewatch Batman and Batman Returns, especially since this also involves Selina...

And as to looking back at old stuff? *wince* I have. I see your point. :D
