new year's resloutions

Last year, I listed the these resolutions on this blog:
  1. Sell a book.
  2. Run injury free.
  3. Do The Weekend Novelist.
  4. Make this blog worthy of a top ten list.
I only succeeded in one - run injury free.

Not that I didn't try to make resolution #1 come true. I tried mighty hard. I wrote two proposals and even switched agents. No luck.

As for resolution #3. That book's kind of lame.

I did, however, start a novel this year. And my top resolution for the coming year is to finish it. I think I'll be able to accomplish that quite easily.

Which brings us to resolution #4. I gave that a pretty good shot. I had a couple of cool ideas. But I couldn't follow through on them because I was so busy with grad school and whatnot.

I did, however, start writing for another website, and that's working out pretty well. I've hit some good stories and I've got a steadily growing readership.

And, unlike this blog, I actually get paid for it.

So with that, I think it's time to say good bye to this here KC Soil thing. I'll keep it up here online. And, who knows, maybe I'll find a need for it again. But for now, it just doesn't quite fit with my life. For the two or three of you out there who like it, all I can say is, sorry.

Now, for 2010:

  1. Write a novel
  2. Run injury free
  3. Finish the kitchen

I understand letting it go... and I'll miss it too. Things run their course.

We'll find other ways to stay in touch.
