2007 New Year's Resolutions...
I've never been good at these things. Either I make an unrealistic resolution, like write an entire novel in a year, or I make a resolution that's out of my own control. Like, get my novel published.
So, when I first came up with this year's resolution, i.e. publish two short pieces in 2007, it seemed like a bad idea. So, I came up with something that's completely within my control (barring no personal tragedies occur) and something that doesn't seem too unrealistic. It's in parts...
Part 1: Submit two short pieces (either fiction or
nonfiction) a month.
Part 2: Find and do a write-up of at least one voter education site a week for my VOID project.
Part 3: Write up a complete, workable chapter-by-chapter synopsis for my fiction novel.
Part 4: Write up a complete, workable chapter-by-chapter outline for
my nonfiction book.
Part 5: Maintain my family obligations, my 4.0 GPA, my VOID
participation, and my blog while accomplishing the above.
So, does this seem realistic, considering what Part 5 has proven to entail? Or, am I setting myself up for failure once again? Do you think I can manage my time that well? Or is there more to it than time-management and motivation?
I don't know, but I do want to try. Advice would be appreciated.
