I certainly hope so!
2015 was a year full of changes.
I first started this blog in January, but did not start to really use it until August.
I started posting The Dreams this year. Now I’ve reached the point of posting a chapter every week. I can still hardly believe it!
I started the year with a job and dreams of more time to write. Here at the end of the year I’ve been laid off and I dream of paying my bills by writing (maybe not soon, but some day).
Most of the year I could not get myself to write with any consistency. Then I started using this blog to make myself more accountable to my writing. Now I seem to be doing a pretty good job of writing every day.
I lost both Camp NaNoWriMo sessions this year, but I managed to win NaNoWriMo with a huge word count rally in the final days. Now I know I can do it, but hope I won’t have to do it again.
In terms of writing 2015 has only gotten better as the year progressed. Unfortunately the future has only become more uncertain.
All of the uncertainty in my life these days reminds me to be sure only to give myself goals for 2016 that I can actually control. There are plenty of things I would love to see happen next year, but I won’t be able to make them happen on my own so I won’t include those.
My 2016 Goals
- Write every day
- Post a chapter every week
- Finish The Dreams
- Start writing another novel
- Win CampNaNoWriMo at least once
- Win NaNoWriMo
Six goals seems like a completely doable number for the year. Have I missed any obvious ones? What are your goals for the new year?
