mxpw's Goals for 2011
Since I missed Festivus and my chance to do the Airing of Grievances, I am instead forced to list my goals for the new year. In truth, I don't really know what I want to accomplish this year, but I decided to aspire for great heights with this list in the hope that if I actually achieve one or more of them, I will have done something cool.
So here are mxpw's goals for 2011:
1). Finish Fates.
Oh, I mean, Double Agent. And Nine Months. And Banality. And Case Zulu. And H2C. And to never have any more WIP stories for longer than two months ever again.
Unlike Frea, and her anti-fun rules, you may commence laughing now.
2). Run every day.
I need to get in shape and work on my cardio for when the zombie apocalypse finally occurs.
3). Post more frequently on CI.
I have little to say worth reading, but I figure if I saturate the blog with junk, some of it will probably stick.
4). Finish both the "Wheel of Time" series by Robert Jordan and "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R. R. Martin.
This is my main reading goal for this year. Oh, and to finish the unabridged version of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables, but I doubt I'll manage that one, I've been trying to read that sucker for three years now.
5). Get straight As.
Yup, I too am going back to school.
6). Master stick figure drawing.
My lines are pretty good, but they could be better. I want them to be as life-like as possible, so that people really feel it when I play Hangman with them.
7). Be nicer.
I don't think I am nice enough and I have to make sure I stay nicer than Frea. Being nice is the only chance I have that she might feel guilty over my elimination.
8). Finish several short stories I have in progress and actually submit them. Start my novel. Write a screenplay so that I can finagle my way into casting Yvonne as the female lead. Profit.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one.
9). Steal back Frea's time machine.
Pretty self-explanatory, I think.
10). Conquer the world. Or get a real job. Either one works for me.
I probably won't accomplish 1-9, so this will be my last chance to say I accomplished something noteworthy before the world ends in 2012.
So there you have it, folks. I hope you too have a great new year and accomplish all the goals you set for yourself in 2011.
