I had a lot of high hopes for last year, and lots of the hopes I had were a wee bit too high. I remember setting the bar for myself, knocking it down, setting it back up, missing it, knocking it down, setting it up, breaking it, replacing it, painting it a different color, trying to adjust the bar diagonally one way and then the other for optimal bar-jumping, and settling for just jumping over a post some days.

I’m kind of proud of what I accomplished last year. Not that I’m not proud, I mean, I am proud. I’m not not proud. I feel as though there were a lot of things I could’ve done if I’d only tried a little harder, given up, perhaps … a little later. (if giving up sooner caused a given project to fall flat, maybe giving up later would have allowed it to succeed, who knows?) I did tons of stuff in 2010. It’d probably take a week or more to recall it.

I have high hopes for 2011, too. (Technically it’s already started, but my year starts in March when Rumors of War has its first birthday.) I hope to do even more with my year this year than I did last year, and that starts with the webcomic and the blog. I started the blog almost five months ago, and the comic almost a year ago. I wrote one short story last year, and since 2011 started, I’ve written one and made attempts at two others.

What does the new year hold in store for me?
