I know that it is a little bit late for goal setting. Maybe I'll just call what I am about to do my mid-year direction correction. Not that cutesy little rhyming titles are really my thing, it just kind of happened like that.
Anyway. Ultimately it is still my goal to have something published by my 20th birthday. I could stretch that definition and say that I have already met it because of last year's achievements but I think that we all know what I meant when I set that goal. I will have a book in print by my 20th birthday.
On a smaller scale, my goals for this year are as follows:
To place in the KSP short fiction award for the second year in a row. First would be nice.
To enter the Peter Cowan awards and place or get commended.
To be published in a journal like Indigo.
Also, passing university would be nice, but considering that my results this last semester were straight Distinctions, I am not too worried about that. Looking back over my "i wont pass" whinge/posts I feel pretty silly. But thats great. It would be worse if i looked back at all these posts saying that I would do awesome after just having learned that I failed.
