There are so many things I’ve planned to do or wanted to do and either I get sidetracked or major life events seem to push ideas back indefinitely. 2012 was a huge letdown and I had to abandon or push back many projects. That makes me feel shitty inside since I don’t want to be the guy who never completes a project or follows through with anything. So, it’s time for a change. My only New Year’s Resolution for 2013 is in a nutshell, to be highly selective with my choices. I vow to think critically about side projects that come up, consider them, and after deciding which ones I do want to do, follow through with them until they are DONE.
That being said, there are only a few projects that I am working for now that I fully intend to finish and take more seriously.
1. I have a short story that I am working on as much as I can. It shall be unveiled soon enough. It’s inspired by some recent, real events and mainly deals with coincidence. Real shocker there, eh? I can’t help it, it’s my favorite theme to work through.
2. Up In Smoke Podcast. Reg and I are getting the old episodes up as best we can so that we can be caught up on it. We have some really good episodes that will be released soon. Check it out @ http://upinsmoke.jflom.com!
3. Helping Mike Betancourt with his comedy and side projects. Not much to say here, but I am attempting to be more timely with his projects in an effort to boost his popularity. I hope that I can make a difference.
4. The bulk of my efforts are going toward me going into business for myself. I don’t want to say too much about it just yet; but, I will unveil the website soon enough.
Lastly, I am also working on a radio play, but I lump that in with the podcast because that’s where it will be presented. So, it just gets an honorable mention for now. Once there is more done and I can move it up to a real project status, you will see more about it here. But, to tease you, you can know it will be about time travelling detectives.
2011 was the year of things falling apart.
2012 was the year of random acts of badness.
2013 shall be the year of success.
