Deb Ng posted today about her goals for 2008. In her post, she mentioned that she met her goal of increasing her income by $10,000 in 2007.
Unfortunately, I haven't been as successful in my goals for 2007. Here they were:
1. To revise my NaNoWriMo novel and get it ready for submitting
2. To submit my NaNoWriMo novel to at least one publisher during 2007
3. To start work on my next novel
4. To double my freelance income in 2007
The only one of these goals that I have achieved is number 3, starting work on my next novel — if you consider a detailed outline to be "starting work."
Although I didn't double my income in 2007, by the end of the year I estimate I will have succeeded in increasing it by 50 percent. I am disappointed that I can't say "I did it!" — but I guess it's not a bad achievement, particularly for my second year of full-time freelancing.
However, I also somewhat achieved this goal in another way. In my post, I commented that part of the reason for this goal was so that I could afford to stable my horse in town. While I didn't manage to double my income, I did still manage to bring Panama out here!
I haven't yet decided on all of my goals for 2008, so those will come in a later post.

As the New Year approaches, I plan to revisit my 2007 resolutions as well. As of right now, I can't even remember what they were, so it should be interesting to see if I accomplished any of them.
