Life, what am I going to do next

Posted on Updated on

So, tonight in the pub I scribbled down a list of things that I want to achieve by the end of the year.

Here’s the list

Play an x wing tournament and not finish bottom

Find some productive way to get out of the house more often

Find a good balance of drinking- ie less time drinking lots at home, a little more time (perhaps a regular) drinking a couple in the pub

Write something- no more half started ideas, fully write something, with plans and expansions, submit it for critique online and begin the rewriting
