a quick look forward and back

I don't make resolutions, 'cause I don't keep them. I have, though, for some years, created a list of goals to accomplish, and so will continue to do that.

Weirdly enough, looking at the last year's accomplishments, the list doesn't seem to come anywhere near representing the amount of *work* I did.

For the first time I think I'm going to cut back on my ytd wordcount goal. This is the first year I've *made* 400K, and my conclusion is, "*Fuck* that's a lot of writing." I can't actually quite believe I did it. I only have two books due in 2007, and while I'm eager to get ahead of the curve, man. I think I'll aim for a smaller number this time, and if I write more than that, well, that's okay too.

Similarly with my reading list. I still feel pretty strongly that 104 books is the absolute minimum I should be reading in a year, but I don't think I've managed that since I started writing with the intent to get published. 5 years is long enough to learn that I'm not going to make that goal. :p

That looks pretty good. :)
