Last year, overambition was my downfall.
I made plans. Lots of great ones. Like reading a ton of books, and running an indie fiction challenge, getting author interviews for every Monday, and… yeah, stuff.
This on top of my own writing, being editor-in-chief for 1889 Labs, co-producing and hosting Webfiction World, running Indie Book Reviewer, updating qazyfiction, and — sometimes — having a life.
I still owe a bunch of authors a review, and have no idea when/if I’ll get round to it. I still want to get back into webfiction reviewing, but that’s not looking likely at the moment…
I’ve got to prioritise, and quite frankly quillsandzebras is not high up on the list.
So, the plan:
I’m going to work through the backlog of author interviews, and at least get those up and running again every other Monday (and then go down to every Monday, if I can). Hopefully if I build up a buffer, it won’t kill me.
I’m only going to take on books for review on a very select/limited basis. That way I can be sure I’ll get the review done in a reasonable amount of time.
All other posts will come on an ad hoc basis. I have a couple funny ideas, and am thinking of moving this blog more towards something conversational rather than only interviews/reviews. We’ll see!
What about you? What was your downfall last year? Any plans for the new year?
