So I wasn't originally going to post any of my goals. Because, really, what's the point? Why set myself up to feel bad that I didn't reach them?
But then I couldn't stop myself. Any excuse to talk about my stories...
And, when it gets down to it, perhaps posting about them will give me a little more motivation to push and actually reach these writing goals.
cause that's apparently how this works
I do a monthly plan (and have done so for a few years) mostly because it helps me decide what to do for the three months of NaNo (camps in April and July, and NaNo itself) and what I can do in between those months.
January Finish first draft of Words of Peace
February/March Edit Words of Gold
April Finish first draft of Halls of Legend for Camp NaNo
May/June Catch-up // Edit Words of Song
July First draft of Secrecy for Camp NaNo
August/September/October Catch-up // Edit Words of Peace // NaNoPrep
Wait, I need plans for Saver of Memories?? *stuffs paper in shredding machine* Forget the plans, I'm winging my blog this year!
I actually make personal plans (spend more time in the Word, keep room clean, pray more, spend more time with family, that sort of thing) every morning while reading the Bible, every evening while reading the Bible, and every Sunday and Wednesday during worship. (Seeing a pattern there?)
But I made a few more general ones at the beginning of this year.
- Ride the horses more
- Keep up running
- Go mountain biking with my brother
- Try doing some drawing with Evangeline
- Write Ships, Secrets, and Survivors with Sarah
So, nothing super fancy. But still, something to work at. I've got 12 months, so let's see what I can get done!
