Good Riddance 2013 ( Old Lang Signs of Failures )

The year is quickly coming to an end ( thank the gods ) and I feel the need to write a year end review of various worthless and pointless things that really have nothing to do with much of anything at all at all at all at all at all ( Buzzcocks reference ).

  1. I didn't write enough articles and was constantly in fear of losing my credentials and thus losing my usual $2.14 per pay period because I only have three subscribers ( one of which is me ) and no one else reads anything I write anyway.
  2. I didn't ( once again ) write a novel during November. November is NaNoWriMo.
  3. But I'm pretty sure I wrote at least one poem in April. April is NaPoWriMo.
  4. I am not making up nonsense words there. They do mean something. Do some research.
  5. I let my poetry website expire because I didn't have money to keep it going. That sucks. But my short story/flash fiction site remains, though I've added nothing since August.
  6. I did get back to elance.com and picked up a few jobs. Doesn't pay much but it makes me feel better about my writing skills.
  7. Seven is not my lucky number.
  8. I started putting together a book at createspace.com. That has quickly fallen by the wayside as that costs money as well.
  9. I resolve to write more articles here in the new year. But I stopped making resolutions years ago. Hell, I hardly even try to keep them anyway.
  10. I read many good books this year that I cannot remember. Since August I've probably read about thirty books.
