2004 in review, and goals.

Despite not seeing my bondmate half enough for the bulk of the year, it was a decent year. It started out with extreme lousiness and depression, but perked up after that. I'm employed at a job I'm having fun with, and I have more people to spend random time hanging out with. I finished the rough draft of one novel and started the rough draft of a second. I've honed my writing skills enough so that a crap novel cranked out in a month by me is actually an enjoyable read even in rough draft format. I got to spend some time in Alaska, and I've figured out some of my social priorities.

In 2005, I hope to accomplish most, if not all, of the following:
  • spend more time working on keeping myself in better shape
  • pay more attention to housework
  • finish up both The Necromancer's Prayer and cuttingrmfloor, as well as write another nanowrimo novel, and probably some smaller projects; work more on the magicgeeking document
  • make appropriate advancements in the workplace
  • pay more attention to finances
  • devote more attention to the girls (including letting Naomi spend more time with her computers)
  • spend more time (remotely and in person) with my bondmate, and make sure he understands how very much I cherish our friendship, and how very happy and stable he helps me be
  • establish a more comprehensive face-to-face social network of people who don't drive me up the bloody wall on a regular basis
  • spend more time with my big bro
  • start the hairy-scary process of trying to get published
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
