It didn't take me long to realize everything on my list had something to do with writing. I looked at my current WIPs and began a realistic list of what I want and need to accomplish. I also sat down with my Goodreads to-read list, which is insanely long, and picked out books I definitely want to read this year.
Also, since I didn't meet all my goals last year I decided I needed a new way to keep myself accountable this year. So, I thought I could list my goals here at the beginning of the year and then revisit them at the end of the year. Maybe this will be what I need to meet all of my goals this year. And I would love to hear what your goals are. Let's try to keep each other accountable this year.
Here's my list:
- Polish off WIP3. I had hoped to have this done by December, but life and health issues got in my way.
- Query WIP3. Again I wanted to have this one on submission already, but as I said above, life got in the way.
- Participate in NaNoWriMo - I participated in 2010 & 2011, but bowed out this past year to polish off WIP3 and had withdrawals. I have several projects swimming around in my mind for this year.
- Read at least 50 books. This list can be found on my personal blog, and it's way more than 50 books. Chances are I will deviate from this list, as I tend to do every year. lol
