I’ve already posted my New Year Resolutions for 2013 and they’re going spiffingly well so far (yes, it’s still 2012).
What of my goals? Well, I’m glad you asked. I’ve been thinking about it, and while writing this on a small Acer netbook computer I’ve decided that my goal is to make enough from writing to buy a new laptop. A proper laptop, that can do more than one operation at once.
My writing time is divided between this netbook and my main PC (a self build). For comfort I prefer the laptop type as I can sit on the sofa, under a blanket and be nice and cosy. Being cold really puts me off writing. I usually use the PC when I have to do more than one thing and especially if I’m doing any photo or video editing.
Much like I did my sums for my New Year Resolutions, I did them for my goal. To achieve my goal I’ll need to sell 143 copies of my book in 2013. That’s about 12 per month. It’s doable, but since ‘Lament for the Living’ won’t be released until May I might not pull it off.
But that’s my goal, that’s what I’m aiming for. Sales = laptop = better productivity.
Bring it on.
