Happy New Year! And new decade!
As you can see, I’ve set up a shiny-new wordpress site on a shiny-new domain. This is all thanks to my forward-thinking husband, who registered a bunch of domain names years ago. I’m kind of sad to see the old add-ridden livejournal page go, but it was time for it to retire. I did import all of my old posts, just for nostalgia’s sake. Ahh… the pantry project! Lectures about my tattoo(s)! And a whole bunch of other stuff I don’t even remember writing! Woot!
Anyways, since it’s a new year I’ve decided to resurrect blogging. I’m starting with my new things list. I need ten of them, and I need to be able to realistically complete them in one year. I did pretty well in 2008 and 2009. And for some reason I fell off the face of the earth in 2010. Go figure.
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
10. Play Uncharted 3, all the way through, all by myself. This counts as a new thing because I’ve never actually played an RPG on my own. Stephen usually does most of the playing while I tell him to kick that barrel and blow up that dude. But I do love me some Nathan Drake (and Nathan Fillion), so this seems like a good place to start.
9. Decaf. I should try it, at least once. It can’t be all that bad, right?
8. Kayak Jordan Lake at night. It’s supposed to be cool, and I recently discovered that kayaking is awesome.
7. Skydiving. Apparently, there is a place in Winston Salem and it’s $230 for your first jump. Anybody wanna come with? Stephen’s already in.
6. Join a writer’s group. Now that I have my shiny new literary agent, I probably should start taking advantage of all the cool resources out there for people who write. This one is free and hopefully non-scary. So I need to get my act together and go to a meet-up or something.
5. Take Edward to the Smithsonian. It’s been a while since I’ve been, and I’m pretty sure there are enough electronics around to hold his interest.
4. Drink a beer while taking a shower. Yeah. You read that right. Every list needs a gimme.
3. Nanowrimo. I write pretty fast, and I *think* I could crank out 50K in a month. It would be a BAD 50K, but I would probably enjoy myself. Anyway, hopefully by November I’ll be done with the next novel in my series and be in the throes of editing. In which case I might need a break to write something crappy.
2. Geocaching. Looks like fun, right?
