Anyway, that's enough excuses from me. I apologize if I seem that I'm whining. I don't mean to. My wonderful husband is currently trying to get our son to sleep in his crib that he's been boycotting for a few weeks so that I can have some time to write, which brings me to the point of this post: my New Year resolution.
This year, the year of 2016, I have decided to set a goal. The ultimate goal is to make a habit of writing since I haven't written much in the last year and a half except perhaps two or three poems, which if I find I might share. My specific goals for 2016 are the following:
- Write for 30 minutes a day.
- Write a minimum of 12 poems (one per month).
- Write 3 short stories, which can include a children's story.
- Prep for NaNoWriMo.
- Write my first novel during the month of NaNoWriMo.
I want to be held accountable, so I'll be sharing my writings in my blog and with my family and friends so that they can help me achieve my goals. I will be writing for myself, so even though it'd be awesome if people enjoyed my work, it's possible it could be terrible. But I'll never write something great if I don't try. And I won't get better at writing unless I write a few or a lot of terrible stories or poetry.
So let's have a happy New Year and accomplish some goals!
