2. To write some longer Gibbs/Ducky stories.
At one time during my fannish writing 'career' a short story to me was 10,000/15,000 words, and the idea of writing a drabble was an impossible one.
Given that I have had four novels published (three The Professionals and one Starsky & Hutch), together with my utter devotion to Gibbs/Ducky, I'm more than a tad bemused to discover that my longest Gibbs/Ducky story is a mere 13,280 words. In fact I have only written four stories over 10,000 words. So I shall aim to encompass this resolution with the one above.
3. To take part in more ncis_flashfic challenges.
Hey, let's spread the Gibbs/Ducky love more :-) Again, this can be encompassed with resolution one.
4. To write in fandoms other than NCIS.
a) At least one story in each of my other fandoms (Sapphire & Steel, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Professionals, Due South).
b) To try to write a story for one or more of the other rare pairs which I enjoy: Neil/Willie (The Sandbaggers), Dalgliesh/Massingham (The Dalgliesh Mysteries), Raffles/Bunny (Raffles).
c) To try to finish a Starsky & Hutch story which I began what now seems like an aeon ago.
5. To install Paint Shop Pro on my computer - and teach myself to use it.
I bought it a few months ago, but have somehow never found the time to install it. Instead I continue to use Microsoft's PhotoDraw, which is a nice enough program, but since I gave in and installed XP Pro SP2 it has had a few glitches. And of course MS discontinued the program a while ago, thus there are no updates for it. It's not quite one of the 'Microsoft's own programs that do not work with Microsoft's Operating System updates', but it's close.
I guess it's like all these things though, you use what you know, as it seems quicker and simpler.
6. To get the non-fiction part of my website updated and remove the 'This Page Is Under Construction' message.
Amongst other things I aim to have an episode guide for each fandom (with short descriptions of each episode) and character studies.
7. To go through my zine collection and decide what I really am not going to re-read.
Five filing cabinet drawers full of zines, plus a shelf of digest seems a tad too much - especially as I know there are some I'm not going to re-read.
Hmmm, this list started as a mere three yesterday. Methinks I should stop here whilst I'm ahead and have a vague chance of keeping these.
