Creative and Fannish Resolutions for 2018

Not doing the Snowflake Challenge this year (obviously), but I've got one more end/beginning of the year list to make, so my fandom goals for 2018 will now be appearing outside the context of a meme.

It's one category short from last year's, and this was a rough decision: no fanfiction goals. See, when I make lists I tend to actually use them, which is of course why I make them in the first place, but it means I always end up prioritizing what's on the list so that I can cross something off rather than following some random inspiration. The format tricks my brain into thinking that all items have equal weight, and fanfiction is easier for me to write than original fiction, aaaand...last year I had all my fanfiction goals crossed off before I'd even taken a good look at the original fiction ones.

No more excuses. I love writing fanfiction and I'm not by any means giving it up, but from now on that's what will get the random inspiration treatment. Original fiction gets goals.

Original fiction:

Complete "Retronym"
Complete the romance novel I started in November
Finish writing the first arc of a comic
Write a 2-5k word story about anything
Camp NaNoWriMo

Art and crafting:

Crossover fan art
Paint in watercolors
Sculpt a mythical beast
Digitally color three hand-drawn sketches
Sew something wearable


Twenty-four total books
Three of them from authors I've never read before
Finish Wheel of Time

TV and games:

Post BtVS reviews through S3
Rewatch/finish Lost
Finish FFIX


Make a fanmix for everything!
Clean up Castle Kairos
At least one book/movie/comic/TV/fanwork review or meta per month
Make good on my random goodwill meme promises
