What New Year?

Feels like the same old year to me. I've never been one for New Year's Resolutions, and this year is no different. I'm not resolving to write more. I'm simply determined to keep doing the solid effort at writing that I've been doing. I'm not making a goal to exercise more, because I know that will fail miserably. I think I'm a New Year's Scrooge.

Anyways, I haven't blogged much lately because my free time is limited now, and I've been trying to squeeze in writing on my novels as opposed to writing on the blog. I think I'm done with the SciFi novel now. The ending is passable, but seems anti-climactic to me. We'll see what the critique crew thinks. Hopefully my mom will like the novel also. This is the one she's been nagging me to work on. Hi Mom! Love ya! Now we'll see if she's actually keeping up with my blog... How long will it be before she demands that I send the novel to her?

Next on my menu is to go back and edit the SciFi novel, and Historian's Calling, my UF novel so I can start sending it back out to agents. After that, I'll try to get back into Gladiator's Legacy, book 2 in the UF series. When I left off to concentrate on the SciFi novel, I think I was 20-some-thousand words into it. I'll also keep working on my side projects - the dark fantasy I'm world-building right now and the paranormal romance/urban fantasy I've been contemplating.

What are you all working on right now in your outside-of-work lives? Getting your warrior to level 75 or something in World of Warcraft? A new photography technique? A sewing project? Building a new computer? Landscaping? And yes, I'll ask: did you make a New Year's Resolution? :)


  1. I'm catching up on my blogs! lol! sorry I've been out of touch! I totally agree though--New Years Scrooge to the max--I never make resolutions. Why wait for a new year to make them--why wouldn't you strive to be better at something when you figure out you suck at it?

    Are you going to do a review of Ilona Andrew's On the Edge? Just finished it last night :)

  2. World of Warcraft??? Level 52 Epic in Titan Quest, Babeeee!!!

  3. BTW, finally hit level 80 for the first time :) Demonology/Destruction Warlock!!!!! Still working on epic flying--5000g is way too expensive.

  4. Aw! I'm so proud of both of you! No. Really I am. Ignore the seething jealousy coming from my direction. Now, who's going to adopt my kids for a few weeks so I can get some gaming in? We're currently playing Dragon Age: Origins. It's fun, but definitely not something the kids can watch.
