Goals for 2017

This was originally written back in February, but never actually published.  I am going to fall quite short in many categories—it’s been that kind of year, plus I am lazier than usual it seems—but I figured I ought to put it out there, since I’ve been doing these lists since 2011 and I should at least have some sort of consistency going, right?  Right…

  • The Ender Quartet (Ender’s Game, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, Children of the Mind)
