End of the Year

Sorry, no “2020 is the year from hell” jokes. I was just thinking about my personal and writing end of the year chores.

Years ago my husband made me Excel files to track sales, word count, and other stuff. I still use them. At the end of each year, I have to update and copy them to make new ones for the new year.

About this time of year, I contemplate. What did I finish? What did I not finish? What do I want to accomplish next year? I lay out what books I want to write for the new year. Are some in the process? Are some plotted? Are some just in the thinking stage?

My husband does end of the year stuff too, for the household. He cleans out his desk drawers. He puts some stuff in folders to save for tax stuff and some gets shredded. He grumbles, but by the time the new year rolls around, he is very happy with his clean desk and office.

Me too.

Do you do any end of the year stuff?
