    Start to write stories in English and be more confident with the language... yeah, my main goal for this year is to become a pro in English
    I'd like to improve my English

    I found out last year that non-writers are notoriously slow reviewers, so my hope of submitting to an agent or publisher last year has turned into a hope to do the same this year. I've also started another novel that I wouldn't mind having finished, at least in some form, by the end of the year.

But....not everything in a writer's world works out, and this is one of those things. I really want to turn it into a long story, and/or break it into a short series. This will be the year I do that.

    Well.....I have done just that. The story has been started, and I'm almost finished chapter 2 of 6. It's kind of an odd feeling to be working on something that's lay dormant for almost two decades, but it's time has come. While it never became the novel I wanted it to be, it will be a story that I will finally be proud of once it's finished.

    I know the timeline of my story and have many bits and pieces of it from various points along that timeline. Now I need to decide exactly how to tell the story and get it organized..... and backup..... backup several times over so I don't lose it all again as happened a few years ago! Hopefully 2018 will see all of that happen!

    Make my writing gooder (oops…I mean better) so that my wife has less editing to do. It is taxing on the marriage!

    This year I will finish at least three pieces and sent a least one off for publication.
