Writer's Goals for 2014, End of Year Update

I accomplished one thing in December -- I wrote a Christmas ghost story.  The working title is Gin and Ginger.  I read this at our December writer's night/Christmas party, and people seemed to like it (I got a "needs to be tightened up" sort of response), but I wasn't satisfied with it.  I came up with a new opening and a plan to rework the story and tighten up the plot, and I started the rework but then I got sidetracked like usual.

Yearly Goal Progress:

1.  Write a Grandpa Anarchy Story a week.
