Its that time of year when millions of people make promises to themselves for the coming year. Most New Years Resolutions barely survive the month of January before they get forgotten. In fact I recently read that while the majority of people were confident of success when they set their goals the actual success rate was as low as 12%! [Source]. Unless that is you go and do something silly like upping the stakes and publish it on a Blog or something....
Never one to do things the easy way my New Years Resolution comes in four parts. Think of it as objective setting for 2010.
- Paint more miniatures than 2009. I'll be measuring this against my tally published yesterday. I'm never going to be a high turnover kinda painter as most of my projects are single figures. None the less I will be trying to increase my productivity, if only to give me something to write about!
- Complete the 3rd story arc for my Campaign Setting. I've let this writing project slip and need to get back on track. This means getting to grips with the prospect of GM'ing 4E so I will also need to make myself more familiar with the DMG and MM.
- Continue building my Blog. To do this I'm going to try and maintain the daily posting schedule but will also try and get more varied input from my gaming group in the form of Guest Posts. These have proved popular in the past and I sense an as yet untapped pool of knowledge just waiting to be exploited!
- Play More Games! I'm hoping my gaming group can get more games in this year as our schedule was shot to pieces last year by all manner of unforeseen events. But we also decided to play more boardgames and CCG's when we couldn't roleplay and I'm looking forward to continuing this policy into 2010. I'm also looking forward to playing some FoW games with my brother in law. He moved house a few months ago but he's settled in now. Fitting in some games (as opposed to decorating) should be an easier prospect in coming months.
So there you have it, my overly complicated New Years Resolution. I expect you, dear readers, to give me hell if I break them!
