Resolution Update 6

I get tested all day Wednesday to see how messed up my body is. That will probably make next week’s resolution update as weak as this one:

1.   Run 730 miles: no change, still 11.3 miles.

2.  5,000 push ups and 8,000 leg lifts: no change, 361 push ups and 325 leg lifts.

3.  Lose 26 pounds: didn’t weigh myself again.

4.  Send out 100 resumes: nothing.

5. Send out 50 manuscripts: nothing.

6. Write 60,000 words and five new stories: 2,563 words.

7. Visit five new libraries: two–the Wyoming and Price Hill branches od the Cincinnati.

8. Read ten new H.P. Lovecraft stories:

“Celephais,” “The Other Gods,” “The Moon-Bog,””The Street,””The Doom That Came to Sarnath,” “Polaris,” “The Alchemist,” “The Music of Erich Zann,” “Dreams in the Witch House,” and “The White Ship.”

9.  Read 12 works: Finished James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as A Young Man, and Shakespeare’s long poetry. About halfway through Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine.

10. 301 blog posts: this is 27.
