    Inspired by [link=]last year's resolution thread[/link], I thought it would be nice if we started a new one, asking writers what their writing resolutions for 2005 will be. :)

    My resolution is, alas, the same as last year's. :(

    I will finish The Killer of Ghosts and complete part 4 of the Doona Double Duology before posting any of it. :)

    Like you, Knight-Ander, my resolution is the same as last year. Finish Betrayal before the end of 2005. I had hoped it would be done by now but alas, it is not. :( After that, never ever again post a fic before it's completely done!!!!!

    I want to write something romantic. Just to prove to myself that I've still got it. I've done so much angst lately, but now I want to try to produce something to make peoples' toes curl :p least that's my goal...

    Stop being a lazy git and actually keep on working on stories and other projects rather than procrastinating. Other people here and at other places have much busier lives than I do but still manage to do a lot more than me, so I need to be a bit more disciplined in my time management. :p

    To actually write. :p And actually do the vigs when I say I'll do them.

    Well, now I don't have school getting in the way of that.

    I will try to write more of the characters that I feel least comfortable with, just to push the envelope.

    I will finish "In the Service of the Order" and two other stories that have the potential to become a series of stories. I will do this just because I can't stand to leave things unfinished.

    My daughter and I will finish our Big Brother cross-over...I hope.

    For 2005 I resolve to:

    1. Finish and refine my long fic, Of Loss And Love.

    2. Work, rework and work again on plot bunnies before polishing them, as impatient as I am.

    3. Write stories about unfamiliar characters and settings to explore new writing horizons.

    4. Ignore plot bunnies that endlessly gnaw at my bloodied ankles until I can finish my current stories.

    For me I want to finish the current story I have posted and to finish writing some that I've started by hand. Having 6 people in your 2 bedroom house for the past year while my brother looked for a job after getting out of the military, has been a nightmare for writing time, space to write, peace and quiet, etc. But he is moving out this weekend, so things will get back to some normality soon. :)

    Besides that just to write 200 words a day and see what I come up with! :)

    I'm getting married in May Why congrads NarundiJedi!! Glad to see that on the boards, brings cheers to my depressing lack of love life hehehehe

    As for my resolutions:

    1> Finish up 'The First' and maybe start a sequal since several have mentioned that they were curious on whether or not I was gonna do more with Lin and Mena.

    2> Wrap up 'One Lesson Too Many' to start the continuation of it leading up to Dooku's daughter hehehe ;) Talk about a challenge in itself... fast forwarding thru Qui's life and what goes on with Dooku's during that same time frame. Gonna be difficult.. but JA helps with that - I'm juz gonna have to be creative on the Dooku parts hehehehe

    3> Try not to rush things and get boddled down with too many fics at one time ;) Though don't get me wrong I'm totally enjoying doing Dooku with my Master :D and exploring the lines of other characters in our fics as well. RPing them does wonders and makes the writing go soooooo much quicker. Having done 4 yrs of drama it kind'a gets into the habit and I have to catch myself cuz I've slipped numerous times and done 'Dooku-ish' stances/body movements and remarks hehehe amazing how things click sometimes hehehe!!
