Annual goals: 2023 review and 2024 goals

My obligatory review of last year’s goals and list of goals for next year.


  1. Write daily. I didn’t really write last year, for a number of reasons. I have a lot of stories plotted in my head, but they didn’t make it any further than that.
  2. Publish weekly. Can’t really publish if I’m not writing.
  3. Share a new crochet pattern monthly and finish a project weekly. I did a lot better with this one. I made a ton of new stuff, even if I didn’t share the patterns yet: hedgehog, llama, fox, pig, emotional support pickle, Cthulhu, devil, puka, nixie…the list goes on.
  4. Continue to live more sustainably. I didn’t ride my bike to work as much as I wanted (I work a lot of nights and have been too lazy to put a light on my bike), but I did stay pretty active. And I got more chickens. I don’t really need ten chickens, but we all know I’ll be getting more this spring too.
  5. Blog regularly. I didn’t do this, because I didn’t really have anything to say. Plus my site is kinda broken, and my computer is too old to fix it, so we’ll see what happens.
  6. Read 100 books. I read 30. Not my worst record, but also not my best.

110k miles on my appropriately-named Odyssey in just four years, including a trip to Alaska last summer. I think Honda should give me a sponsorship deal.


  1. Write weekly. Baby steps to get me back into my groove.
  2. Publish monthly. I spent a lot on new covers for the Heartsbane Saga, so I really should push myself to get them out there. And there’s no excuse for not getting at least one short story done each month.
  3. Knock something off my bucket list monthly. I have this bad habit, that whenever I do something on my list, five more things take its place. I gotta step up my game.
  4. Read 100 books. Per usual.

If you’ve set goals for yourself, what are they? How do you plan to accomplish them?
