Let's get started!
#1 - Finish The Stolen Defender - and start sending query letters.
Ooookay this one is gonna need some explaining.
I am definitely done with the latest draft of The Stolen Defender. But I'm not going to be sending query letters. After a lot of research and debate, I've decided that self publishing, with a proper editor and book cover, would be a better investment then spending years looking for an agent that might take my very unusual book.
So I can't QUITE cross this off yet... more like a half cross.
#2 - Redesign some key Zyearth characters.
Still working on this. I don't know if I'm ever going to quite get it. I don't have a lot of motivation to draw these days for some reason.
I'll keep up the list... probably because I'll need it for next year.
- Matt Azure
- Izzy Gildspine
- Lance Tox
- Ferin Kitsurugi
- Dr. Jaymes Fogg
#3 - Draw and develop the Eight Summons of the Phonar Order of Draso.
Well I got ONE of these done. Just ONE. Birds are hard. Another one for next year I suppose. - Deo, the White Fire Phoenix (a Snowy Egret)
- Excelsis, the Black Fire Phoenix (a Secretary Bird)
- Kyrie, the Ice Phoenix (a Snowy Owl)
- Archángeli, the Metal Phoenix (a Kestrel)
- Jústi, the Lightning Phoenix (a Barn Owl)
- Pax, the Earth Phoenix (a Burrowing Owl)
- Sémini, the Flora Phoenix (a Red Tailed Hawk)
- Petra, the Rock Phoenix (a Roc)
#4 - Design and color a promo picture for The Stolen Defender.
Why on Earth did I make so many ridiculous art related resolutions? XP Put this one on the back burner again.
Okay, WereDriver actually DOES have some progress. I'm getting some character sketches done and I have five pages sketched out. But it'll be a while before it's actually out there. But hey, new logo!
#6 - Sell more short stories.
Well... I haven't really done much with this one either. I have submitted a new short story to Writers of the Future, but I haven't really been writing more short stories.
I have a feeling that I'm seriously failing these resolutions. XP I suppose I should get more short stories written.
#7 - Reoutline the second Zyearth novel - Drifter
This one is actually moving along nicely. I have a new method for outlining and I've got a good outline going so far for Drifter. With luck, I'll have this one finished by the end of the year.
I'm not really losing weight... but I'm not gaining either, which is good. Joe's in a new weight loss program and I'm gonna be taking it with him unofficially, so hopefully this'll change as the year goes on too.
#9 - Starting up Daily Devotions again.
This has ebbed and flowed all year, kind of like my relationship with God. I'm getting back into it though. =)
#10 - Read 35 books next year.
....Yeah this one isn't going as well. I've read... -counts- six. Yeah, I'm behind. XP
#11 - Write more blogs!
This I'm actually doing. Yay!
So that's the breakdown of my resolutions. I'm not really doing too hot am I? Oh well. Better luck next year. =D Maybe I'll start feeling more productive now that I'm working again. Yay!
