Writing

Goals for 2016

2016 Resolutions Instagram_Blog post
Well hello there! And welcome to the great blog adventure 2016!

I just finished going through my blog history to see if I’ve done this before, and as it turns out, I haven’t. So I’m changing that now. I don’t usually come up with New Years Resolutions-especially the get fit/eat better one since it kinda bugs me-but I believe last year or the year before (probably the latter), I made just one: to write more. And I can’t quite remember how that one turned out. But I think at least for a few weeks, I did write more.

For a while now, I’ve wanted to get to where I can write something every day. It’s a hard one to start and keep up. I try to remind myself that it only takes 21 days to start a new habit. So that’s what I’m shooting for first: 21 days, then the year. Although, I may actually need to take it a tad bit slower than that, I’m not really sure. Oh well, it’ll be an adventure at least. In fact, I think this will be quite an interesting year…I’ve managed to think up quite a few more resolutions than I thought I would…

• I will write something every day. Even if it’s just a sentence. Baby steps here…there will be difficult days.
• I will get back to and keep up Blogging Fridays. More to the point, I’ll make it more of a priority.

• I will read more in the genres that I write in.

• I will make time to read period. The time will not present itself.
• I will finish what I didn’t read in 2015, and complete the 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge (already updated over there➡).

Well…so much for that…

• The same goes for writing. This is my career, my work, and my business. It’s high time I treated it as such. I will make time to write and figure out how to write even when I may not feel like it. I will use that as a tool for something creative.

So there you have it, my goals for 2016! Yes, mostly writing and reading related. I have quite a bit of work to do there. And I have my planner all ready to be filled up to help reign in the madness. Now to figure out how to use it as a blogging planner…

I may add some things to my list as the years goes on and I settle in. I will definitely be printing out this list and putting it up on my wall where I will see it. At any rate, I look forward to seeing what this year will bring and I’m excited to be back to blogging (oh, how I’ve missed this)!

Let’s make 2016 spectacular…
