Last Year's Goals:
-Repair laptop Check:)
-Attend ONE (1) conference, be it RT NOLA, Lori's, or the one in Nashville, TN. :(
-Lose 10 lbs or more Check:) I've lost a total of 30 lbs since Sept 9, 2013:)
-Reach the 'HO' titles in karaoke Check:) I'm up to 'How Do I Live' by Leanne Rimes:)
-Publish at least two books this year, which means cleaning up NaNo 2013's wip and submitting it; finishing #8 or going onto #9. Write one or two more (either pen name) 50/50 on this one. Published one, wrote two:)
-Read 200 books Read half that many, due to having to 'share' my Kindle with spouse and youngling.
This Year I Resolve To:
-Finish writing/write NiKo's Choice and untitled Salie's story and publish both
-For NaNo, either write Renei's story or get back to work on AU #8 or 9
-Lose 10 more pounds
-Get out of this house
-Attend ONE conference (see last year's goal)
-Step up the blogging
-Reach the mid-to-end of the 'I' songs

Karaoke Songs Added: 23 added to the 'Good' list:)
