- Write a new bit of short fiction (or revise current works as appropriate) every day
- Update Songs of Eretz Blog daily
- Review posting by Daily Science Fiction every week day
- Complete a poem by poem review of the Oct-Dec issue of Star*Line by 12/31/12
- Complete a poem by poem review of the 2012 SFPA Contest winners by 12/31/12
