Writing goals for January

I know, I know, I've been among the missing, blog-wise. December is a crazy month for me, what with bring in retail and then getting the flu.

I am trying to get back into the writing groove and re-establish a little self-discipline. To wit, I have come up with a (hopefully reasonable) list of writing goals for the month of January and the upcoming week. [We're not even talking about the rest of my life, which I should have a list of goals for as well...maybe next week.]
