New Year's Task Resolutions 2014

Last year, on the first of January, I posted a list of resolutions that I was going to attempt for 2013. And I pretty much failed at all of them. Pretty rubbish, eh?

So, what did I plan?

1) Finish WILD.

Well, that didn't happen. I did make some progress with it, but not a great deal. I did, however, finish the rough versions of the TAROT cards that go with WILD that will be used for character creation and dream inspiration.

2) Finish Extinction for Eden.

That didn't happen either. I'm sorry. My head's just not in the right place for bleak-end-of-humanity type of stuff. It will be far, far better in the hands of someone who can make it the cool and gritty game it deserves to be.

3) Take part in NaNoWriMo again.

Well, I did start. I got about 2000 words into the follow up to the WILD novel I did the previous year when I was called upon to do updates, rewrites and revisions for the 50th Anniversary limited core book for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space.

4) Get out of working in Retail.

Failed. Still there.

5) Draw.

I started the year with a plan to draw something every day, and that didn't really plan out. However, although the "daily drawing" fell through, I did get back into drawing by illustrating the 78 cards of the WILD TAROT. It was a weird experience trying to get back into the swing of drawing again after all these years. I don't know how successful I was, but it was good to get back to it.

My big problem is that I have this clear and definite vision of what I'd like WILD to look like. It's firmly fixed in my head, and I really don't think I have the talent to produce it how I'd like it to appear. But, then I could get someone to do it for me, but I'd probably drive them completely mad with my pedantic changes and alterations.

6) Do something with the video camera.

This has been almost entirely a time issue - where does it go? I did manage to upload a video of the Thor: The Dark World press conference.

Hopefully, I'll do more - experiment a bit. I'd still like to do some "unboxing" videos of RPGs and other cool stuff, but this is distracting me from actually working on WILD.


So what about this year? What do I hope to achieve in 2014?

1) Finish WILD.

2) Get out of retail.


What do you hope to accomplish in 2014?

Here's hoping everyone's 2014 is amazing. Until next time, stay multi-classy!
