Happy New Year!

That’s goals for the year 2009, not two thousand and nine goals, people.

I tend to start the year with a bunch of ambitions and projects—many of which I even accomplish. Some of them for this year follow.

  • Write at least one draft of the fantasy novel. This includes, naturally, finishing the plan for it, now slated for 36 Dec.
  • Read 80 books. I did 75 this year, why not 80 next year?
  • Write a summary/review/synopsis of every book I read. This will be a lot harder, I think. Definitely a trickier one, and a hard discipline to maintain, but we’ll see how it goes.
  • Fix my blog. This blog has been at its “temporary” home for way too long, and I need to move it, and get the various painful migratory steps over with.
  • Fix my Subversion repository. This is something else I’ve let lie for way too long.
  • Finish The Annotated Fantasy Bedtime Hour. Just five episodes left, and this needs to be finished.
  • Finish a writing series of mine called pafib, which I would link to but can’t because it’s on the old blog…
  • Finish at least three software projects, e.g. sfmagic.org, which is still dead at the moment. I want to do more coding generally.

That seems like a good set for now; I’m sure I’ll come up with more as the year moves along, but I’d like to check in next year and be able to cross all these off as done. Good luck to all of you who have your own goals and plans for 2009!
