I want to make some progress on my game Seven Heirs – update it with a few chapters, hooefully. I also want to finish the shorter, simpler ChoiceScript game I’m working on, at least a rough version of it. I’d like to see if I can publish it with HG or perhaps enter it in the next COG Contest, should they do another.
I want to work on writing simple romance novellas that I can self-publish, while also finding time to work on my fantasy romance trilogy. I just want to write more in general and get past my need for perfection that really hinders me.
I also want to draw/paint more! I bought an iPad Pro over a month ago to encourage me to draw more (and it has!). My aunt also bought me watercolor brush pens and watercolor paper for Christmas, so I’d like to experiment with that. I’ve always preferred digital art to traditional as I can easily correct my mistakes, but in 2018 I’m working on conquering my perfectionism and I think working with traditional art where I can’t change what I don’t like will help.
More specific art goals would be to practice drawing hair (my greatest weakness) and clothes. I want to practice doing more line work and developing the patience and discipline necessary for intricate details.
I also want to finish the website I’m working on for my projects. Somewhat related, I want to practice my frontend web design and development, maybe take an online course. Just for fun.
I just really want 2018 to be a year for me to develop as a writer and an artist and a person in general. I’m optimistic and excited for this year!
