2019 New Years Resolutions

Hello everyone!

Happy New Year! I hope 2019 is treating you well thus far.

I know you’re supposed to do these on New Years (Eve?), but I like a little time to mull over them, ruminate, and make them a little interesting.

So here’s my fine-wine and properly-aged cheese list of 2019 Resolutions:

  1. Be Awesome.
  2. Write a lot.
  3. Protect the writing time (this is very important).
  4. Submit a story somewhere.
  5. Do a public reading.
  6. Have a release party.
  7. Read a lot. Specifically:
    1. Finish Return of the King.
    2. On Writing by Stephen King
    3. The Amazon Ad book.
    4. The Uncle Eric Talks About Series.
  8. Visit the library.
  9. Sell one book per day (on average).
  10. Review something awesome.
  11. Book 6 – first draft
  12. Publish Book 6 (optional: with fanfare).
  13. Book 7 first draft
  14. Let’s be adventurous: Publish Book 7 (optional: with dragon parade).
  15. Run a book giveaway!
  16. Blog (more).
  17. Buy new music.
  18. Draw something.
  19. Play my guitar more than once (I should probably change the strings too).
  20. Dress up for Halloween (as something other than “a famous writer incognito/in disguise”).
  21. Eat at a restaurant I haven’t tried before.
  22. Go to 9th Bar (which I’ve been meaning to do for 2 years).
  23. Be Awesome – I’ve decided this will be the first and last item on every years list of Resolutions.

And I did go ahead and post this list on my wall, so I’m confident about the improved compliance.

Here’s to a year of dreams, dragons, and deadlines (specifically the sound they make as they pass us by)!

I hope you make the best 2019 you can!

Peace and love,

DragonBeck
