As I've learnt in previous years, having targets only helps me if I remember to check my progress against them on a regular basis. So here's a little accountability for myself.
I've been working on my redraft intermittently, although I was briefly sidetracked into working on a conference paper instead. As this covers some of the same results, which I needed to write up anyway, it's far from wasted effort, and will give me another publication credit. The paper has been accepted for a conference in April, which also means a trip to Cairo (bonus!).
2. Write another novel
This is on hold for now until I finish the next draft of my thesis. However I am allowing myself to work intermittently on short pieces, since it feels like my brain will explode if I don't allow some of the fiction to trickle out.
3. Submit short stories to five different venues (2/5)
I've also self-published The Falconer, a little fantasy mystery that's free to download. This is set in the same world as Watersmeet, so if you enjoyed that setting, I hope you'll like this one. (For those who care about such things, it's about 10k words, so in that awkward space somewhere between short story and novella.)
4. Read & review at least 52 books (14/52)
5. Log at least 104 runs or walks over 5k (17/104)
6. Log at least 104 physio & weight-lifting sessions (5/104)
7. Take an introductory Persian class
I'm about half way through the beginners' course that started in January, although I sadly missed a couple of lessons thanks to an impromptu trip to Sweden. I'm busily catching up, though.
8. Develop and post 52 new recipes (3/52)
9. Participate in SRC for at least eight months (0/8)
