In a fit of insanity, I made resolutions last year. No, I don’t know what I was thinking either.

Might as well see how I’ve done…

  • Complete/release all the books currently on my slate. ❌ I’ve made progress (one released, others progressed through the production pipeline) but the Paradox/WW buyout scuppered things timing-wise.
  • Write on at least two new books. ✅ Signs of Sorcery and Geist 2e
  • Write/release one new thing for myself. ✅ Two bits of fiction, a micro-game, and a poem. Counting this as a win.
  • Be under 18 stone. ❌ I’m no bigger than I was at the start of the year, but no smaller.
  • Be cycling to work at least three times a week by the end of May. ❌ Hahahahahafuckno
  • Go on an actual holiday with J. somewhere outside the UK. ✅ (if you ignore the ‘with J.’ part)

50% is better than I thought it would be, to be honest.

do you usually make your resolutions at the start of a new year? I've found that when I make mine mid year, or even at the end of the year(whenever) I feel less pressure and it also is a little less...generic. and I try not to put a time limit on things unless they really do require one! :)

I thought about this later and realized that I must sound like the stereotypical idiot American. afterall, don't most people make resolutions at the start of the year so that they have the entire year to accomplish them? mmhmm. yep. but not me. I am a wacky perfectionist who must have everything done ASAP. ha.

I agree. I have often felt that most traditions are conforming and rigid. I enjoy doing things my own way, making it up as I go.
your food blog is great. hope you don't mind that I checked it out!!

there's some truth in that statement, for sure.
