Mesnard’s “Glory Road” progress:
Lat year I had delusions of ambition. Not only did I make a whole slew of writing goals, but I wanted to formulate a system where I could fail and still succeed: so I wouldn’t fall into the trappings of a majority who make resolutions for a new year. Thus, I adopted this Road to Glory point system and progress meter…heavily
stolen inspired by the PSP game NCAA Football 2010.
My version entailed a month-by-month roadmap: with secondary goals to help bolster any months which I faltered; or rather, my endeavors proved too ambitious. To top it off, I made a more long-term (and secretive) goal which I gave myself a decade to accomplish.
What’s my secret agenda? That’s still
a pinky swear with Palpatine shrouded with secrecy. Life would be boring without secrets, don’t you think?
Though my output was abysmal a few months (and then some), writing in December rather than enjoying Nanowrimo burnout was what finally helped me amass enough points to pull off a Road 2012 victory.
Since things seemed to go so well, I decided to definitely do it all over again for 2013. Raising the stakes higher, I even altered my long-range goal (which is the second progress bar at the top of this post) to drive myself a tad harder.
What’s in store for me this year? Hit the jump to get the month-by-month breakdown.
