New Years resolutions for 2015

Had kind of a hard time coming up with these, harder than I had in previous years. I think it may be because I'm not sure what I should be focusing on as my goals at this point. I ended up incorporating a lot from last year that I didn't achieve the way I wanted, and building off of the stuff I did accomplish. I'm not totally happy with this, but it's a starting point, and that's a good thing.

So, for 2015:

1. Bring the Mrs. Hawking property to the next step. Not exactly sure what that is yet, but I hope to build some momentum from the Arisia producton, and I wnat to make the most of it. I think this property could really be something, and I am determined to make that happen.

2. Keep writing new things. Specifically, I want to write both Base Instruments, the next Mrs. Hawking story, as well as the first sequel to Adonis.

3. Get my submission rate up. The only way I will see progress with my writing is if I get it out there. I may set a concrete goal for this, like, say, three to five submissions per week.

4. Keep up my fitness level, and improve it if I can. I always want to be stronger, faster, leaner, harder, more toned.

5. Get my finances in order. They have been off for over a year now, and putting on Mrs. Hawking hasn't helped. But as soon as that's finished, I need to get serious about it.

6. Get in the habit of reading books. Maybe another concrete goal would help? One book a week, something like that? I miss how much I used to read complete books, as opposed to only scripts and blog posts the way I do now.

7. Maintain my important relationships. Love my father, my brother, and Bernie the way they deserve. Keep up with my friends and make them feel valued and cared for. I've been more hermited than usual lately, and I don't want to lose the people who are important to me.

8. I guess I will put keeping an eye to some sort of professional improvement. I'm notoriously bad at the job-finding process, but I think I need to improve my day job status in hopes of having some sort of financial security in addition to furthering my real, artistic work.

9. Keep working on being a kinder person, keeping my temper, and being less judgmental. Always until the day I die.

10. Keep on learning to be hopeful. Always a struggle for me, but so necessary.
