Old year’s resolutions

And so, the year draws to a close. Early this year, I made some resolutions, as did many people. And, like many people, I strove valiantly to keep them, and lost.

I did, however, write something almost every day, and end the year with just shy of 270 works of poetry, some of which are pretty good, if I do say so myself. I’ll be publishing them – most of them, anyways – on Lulu in a few days. And I wrote one short story, which I think is pretty good. I think I’m going to try to get it published – like, really published.

I took a lot of photos, but not every day.

And I read a lot, but spent the last half of the year on War and Peace, which I’m still only half-way through.

As for cooking, well, three out of four isn’t so bad.

I was also thinking this morning about whether it’s more important to me to make a bundle of money, or have lots of people read what I wrote. Since making a bundle of money seems to be nothing but a fantasy (I’ve sold a total of ONE copy of Trains.), and I really do want people to read what I’ve written, I’m going to make the PDF version available for free, under a CC, attribution, non-commercial license. You can get it from here.
