This year and 2013
Posted on December 29th, 2012
This year, I decided I would “get healthy.” To that end, I cooked more, watched what I ate, and lost 22 pounds, despite all the medical weirdness of this year. I have not exercised more, because unless it’s hiking, I pretty much hate exercise. (OK, running, but running by myself is boring.) Still, I want to lose at least 20 more, so that’s on the table for 2013. (If I lose 10 more, I unlock the wonders of my best wardrobe. It’s a powerful incentive!)
This year, I read a lot. I set a modest Goodreads goal of 25 books and have read 40-something books. (To brag, I don’t read fluffy fiction. We’re talking mostly 400+ page nonfiction.) In 2013, I want to continue the trend of reading more. Including some fluffy fiction.
This year, I made a little money from writing. That was nice. In 2013, I am going to work hard to make a lot more money from writing.
This year, I got a lot of free books from publishers to review. This is awesome, even though two of the books were so bad I had to force myself to finish them. In 2013, I’ll be trying to keep that good thing going…with better books.
This year, I worked as a developmental editor for genre fiction. In 2013, I’m going to stay the hell away from editing genre fiction.
Other things coming up in 2013? Finding an agent. A weekly podcast, co-produced with (and co-starring) M. (Details to come — but if you have boxes of old, bad Regency romances around and don’t know what to do with them? I want them. I will pay shipping.)
