In the last few days, I’ve given some thought to the last year and what I want from the year ahead. It’s had it’s ups and downs. In a way, 2016 will be a new start for me. I’m looking forward to it, but it’s also a little scary. It’s a challenge I welcome though. So I’m hoping that writing my goals down and putting them out there on the internet will help encourage me to keep to them.
2016 already looks promising. I have three books written, one almost ready to be submitted. Another book is halfway written. Two more plotted out and started. So work is on its way for the year and I’m excited about what I’m writing.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it, but at times, I’ve had trouble with that this last year. A lot of things contributed to it and I’m not going into that because it’s a complicated mess. I wasn’t happy with much of anything and that included writing. Finding writing a chore is something I want to change in the coming year.
I did NANO in November and during that time I found the fun in writing again in spite of the rush to get those words. I know there will be times–that dreadful middle part of the first draft for example– where I’ll have a down time, but overall, I want to focus on finding joy in writing again.
The goals some of them are going to be writing focused, but some of it is going to be emotional and physical. If I’m going to be happy in my writing, I also need to be happy in my life.
- Be Healthy
- Exercise a little more
- Be Happy –I’m going to focus on finding things that bring me happiness even if it’s only a smile or a moment of laughter. Part of that will have to include letting go of the anger.
- Find joy in writing.
- Finish book one of the new paranormal menage
- Finish Fiery Bliss. (Title will probably change because that title doesn’t quite suit.
- Finish PsyVamp Menage (which I can’t remember the working title at the moment.)
- Keep up with pinterest boards
- Submit Latent Desires (The Bears).
- Revise Touch of the Moon
- Revise Love’s Bounty
- Be more active on Social Media
Some of these are kind of general, but I know what I have in mind. I hope to get more done than is on this list, because in the scope of a year, it’s not all that much. So perhaps if I get through this list, I’ll come back later in the year and add to it.
To help get organized. I’ve started working on a schedule to write. Prioritizing each day what I want to get done and what’s important.
Do you have any goals or resolutions for 2016? Please share them.
I hope the new year brings you success, happiness, health, and creativity!
