a year in review

So at the beginning of this year, I made a bunch of revolutions. They were:

1. to write 400K words of fiction
2. to bike 2000 miles
3. to swim 120 miles
4. to draw 100 drawings
5. to read 104 books
6. to lose 30 pounds

This is what I actually accomplished, out of those:

1. wrote 250K words of fiction
2. biked 605 miles
3. swam 22 miles
4. drew 30 drawings
5. read 79 books
6. lost 15 pounds

The only one of those that I consider to be a real travesty is the failure to read 104 books; I think that’s the bare minimum of what I ought to be reading in a year. And I’m a little disappointed with the number of miles biked, but I’ll cut myself a little slack there because there were some other things that I didn’t set as goals for the year that I’ve ended up doing.

Unexpectedly achieved goals:

1. SOLD THREE BOOKS!!!!
2. ACQUIRED AN AGENT!!!!
3. walked 360 miles

All and all? A pretty damned good year. :)

I have to post this today, because tomorrow I’ll be in Seattle and I donno if I’ll have access. :)

Goals for 2004!

1. to write 400K words of fiction
2. to sell 4 books
3. to bike 1500 miles
4. to walk 575 miles
5. to draw 30 drawings
6. to read 104 books
7. to lose 30 pounds

Also to learn how to do a nifty little php graph to plot my progress :)

My stupid moveable type journal isn't working, so I'm posting here today. Hmph.

be it resolved, 2004/no-longer-stupid MT

Seconds after I made the last posting somebody told me how to fix the stupid MT error, but since I'm double-posting anyway I figured I'd just post this here today too. :) And I have to post it today, because tomorrow I'll be in Seattle and I donno if I'll have access. :)
