I learned a lot, lived a lot, did more art than I thought I had, wrote less than I wanted to, but more than I expected to, and feel pretty good about what I got done, in general. It's not as much as Some People on my friendslist (you know who you are!), but enough.
I'm a little disappointed - I can't find a list of goals for the year to compare this to! I shall definitely have to make one for 2009. It's already longer than this, of course...
15 Portrait Adoption portraits
Roses, in ink...
...and then in color!
Fire and Water
The Trains Must Run on Time
Color on Unicorn Hatchling (hmm! Haven't posted the final on that anywhere yet, I guess. Will do so when I'm back open for orders as promotion for the last copies of Fantasy Babies.)
The Wrong Kind of Snow
Medic (Serenity Fanfic) (unlocked now!)
The Test (Jenny/Bjorn)
Just shy of 20k words of Torn World fiction that still needs editing.
Orphan Works - probably the widest read thing I've written!
Ice Spiders walkthrough
3 calendars and 1 anthology finished. (Anthology in proofs now)
1 coloring book finished (Fantastic Magic)
2 coloring books nearly finished. (Goddesses of the World and Dragons, Fairies and Fantasy Horses 2) - I expect to finish these before new years!
Nearly a month without working email records! (SO painful!)
12 full issues of EMG-Zine (with help!).
Added some thousand-odd new designs to the giftshop.
Tell Me a Story, finished!
Added tea to my lineup. Improved SEVERAL product lines.
Did agentwork and escrow services for the first time, which worked out VERY well.
(One still withheld.)
Major move to trust order fulfillment to an outside party. Has so far worked out wonderfully, shall be phased into action much further throughout 2009.
New front page at EMG - required me to learn CSS!
Torn World - I'd say its about halfway there...
New product pages at EMG, including new 'product information' links, with photos, where I have them.
Took over the http://pathfindersdeck.com site.
http://shermanengr.com - doesn't look like much from the outside, but is VERY nifty in customer and order tracking from the backside.
Can submit months ahead at EMG-Zine.
Credits and other nifty things at EMG-Zine.
3 bellydancing classes!
Learned to operate an excavator.
Went to Las Vegas for the first time.
( And I'll leave you with a goofy photo...Collapse )
