Now Let’s Talk Goals
Ahh, the beginning of a new year. A time for reflection and goal making. Yep, I’m not a resolutions girl. I make goals. I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to accomplish this year, and think I’ve got it figured out. But this year, I’m going to do things a little differently … I’m going to make my writing goals one quarter at a time.
-Finish the first draft of THROUGH CLOUDED EYES. I’m currently at 30k of a projected 80k. Totally doable.
-Decide what to do about the currently-drawered ILLUMINATE THE NIGHT. I love that book and I believe in it, and I need to figure out its future.
-Get a rough draft of my publishing plan. More on that later.
-Decide about my super secret idea. Obvs, more on that later.
-Blog every week. Start blogging about mental illness too.
Some non-writing-related things I want to do this year:
-Send birthday cards. I’ve never really done this, but I want to change that. Because everyone likes real mail.
-Cook dairy-free, grain-free dinners. The Mister is mostly paleo for bike racing, so I’d like to make dinners we can eat together as a family. And it’s good to end your day with a healthy meal.
-Get back into couponing. I’m actually starting that this week!
-Budget on a weekly basis. Gulp.
What about you? Have you set any goals or resolutions for the year? Anything you want to accomplish?
