Time for the annual disappointment session, y'all. Let's go.

As far as writing goes, my goals were to finish the second draft of I Am the Jackal, the second draft of We All Fall Down, and the first draft of either the fantasy story or an apocalypse one that I'll put more details up on later. I completed both second drafts (though WAFD has such deeply ingrained plot and storybuilding issues it's going to need a rewrite anyway, so although the second draft's done, the whole project is on hiatus) but I didn't write any new first drafts this year... which is pretty bad. Usually I get out at least two, but this year was bad for me in terms of writing, I guess. I did try to do a scifi draft for the summer NaNo, but I rushed into it too quickly and the project was dropped.

Art goals. This is where the real disappointment begins. To start painting cities? Nope. To start painting nature? Nah. To improve in human anatomy and shading? Shading, barely, human anatomy, I probably got worse. To better differentiate characters by body type and facial features? I think I got a little practice in differentiating by facial features by the end of the year, but body types is still a solid no. To work more with watercolors and pastels? 2013 me wasn't even ambitious and I still dropped the ball.

Physical training goals. I botched these too, but those were probably a little insane (70 pushups in two minutes kinda deal). I did keep training throughout the year, though, so here are some totals, because I like numbers they make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Total miles: 177.5.
Total pushups: 3160.
Total situps: 4917. I'm really tempted to just do 83 right now and make it 5000, but I just took a shower. I guess I still have 12 hours...

That sounds like a lot, but it really isn't. That said, for the most part I trained consistently throughout the year, so there's that.

I had two other goals: read and review some books--I read a lot more books, but I don't like reviewing, so that died before I even finished the first book--and get a summer job. I'll cut myself some slack on the summer job because I wanted to get in more chemistry, so I took a chem class at uni over the summer instead...

I'll post New Year's goals in another journal. 

Um, happy New Year's Eve!

And if you're in Russia, you've still got two weeks to get your life together before you disappoint yourself with last year's goals, so get on it!

Hello lovelies! My name is Myna. Mostly I like writing absurd stories about idiotic characters doing idiotic things, and then I like drawing pictures of those characters. I also like martial arts, dance and roleplaying. Current residence is North Carolina, home of tobacco and grass. Mostly grass. And it's all dead. Welcome home.

JACKAALLLLLLL
Are the other two new or existing? THE DETAILS PLOX

I am trying to draft my hero story (I have affectionately nicknamed it, THE SOUP) but I painted myself into a corner. I think...

And then I have many story ideas I want to do! Bella's story, Raye's (a SUPERhero story), a story about poc fighting back from being eradicated, fairy tale retellings, a fantasy story involving a metal band aaaah too much //dies

Both are reboots of older attempts. : )

One is Khafiza's story. I took out the "royal family must find an heir garbage" and turned it into more of a story about the Okja/ghosts themselves, and how the Ajla/living beings try to deal with them. At the beginning of the story, Khafiza's brother murders her and she comes back as an Okja, and has to find out how to stop him from hurting more people, because he has bad plans to get rid of all the Okja in the country. Some stuff is here--mynaophelia.deviantart.com/art…

The second is an apocalypse story, or well, more like a botched apocalypse. The apocalypse that couldn't, haha. The backstory is that when humanity finds out a lethal meteor is spiraling towards earth, Marisol takes the opportunity to run away from home, figuring she's only got a few years left anyway. Civilization falls apart. But four years later, the meteor doesn't wipe out all human life as predicted, and Sol realizes she can't just run from everything anymore. Also, there's a cult she was involved with, and she finds out their promises of salvation were not as honest as she'd thought, and now they have her girlfriend, soooo...

I'm too lazy to make blurbs. xD

WHY IS IT CALLED THE SOUP I MUST KNOW RIGHT NOW. : D

I need details on all of those oh my gosh, they sound really cool! Metal band fantasy story?
