Goals for 2015

This time of year is always known as a time of reflection on the last twelve months, and to look forward and plan out goals for the next twelve. I don’t have goals, per se, for 2015, but rather ideas for projects that I’m aiming to kick off in 2015.

The first of these projects is something I’ll be calling Hannah’s Stories From Cubes. I bought a set of Rory’s Story Cubes just before Christmas and had an idea. I attempted NaNoWriMo in 2014, and failed miserably. But alas, I am not defeated. I shall be using these Story Cubes to create a flash fiction story a day (~500 words) every day for the entirety of 2015. Instead of spamming you all with links to stories on this blog every day, I’ll post a link to a public (but not editable!) Google Doc document with the day’s story and then posting a weekly round-up post on here each Sunday. (There! I’ve now posted this online so I have some accountability.)

The second of these projects is still in its infancy; I’d like to start doing videos showing, and analysing, game tutorials. There’s obviously a lot I need to learn to how to do this as I’ve never done any video work before. And I have zero idea where to begin. But yes, this is something I’ve been thinking about for a while and 2015 is perhaps the year to kick this off properly.

There are, of course, other projects that are kicking about in my brain but aside from very vague notes and not even fully formed ideas, they barely exist. So there may be a few surprises throughout the year. Maybe. Hopefully. Possibly.

As for what I’m doing initially in 2015; I’ll be talking at January’s VideoBrains about developers, consumerism and ranting a little bit about Day One patches. Grab a ticket if you’re in London/can get to London/have perfected teleportation on January 26th.

And finally, however you’ll be seeing the new year in; have fun.

See you next year! 🙂

  1. Might I suggest a Tumblelog for your “Stories from Cubes” project? That way people can still follow them if they wish, and you can do things with RSS feeds later down the line, if you so wish. It’s nice to give projects like that a sense of permanence sometimes. 🙂
