Alright, I’m a few days late with this one. I was traveling for the holidays, then because I was traveling for the holidays, I got sick. My resolutions had to go on hold for a bit while I got myself together. But I’m back and I’m ready.
So, goals for 2018. I have a few personal goals, but I’m going to share my reading/writing ones here. I’ve always had a hard time sticking to goals, so we’ll see how this goes.
Goal #1: Read More By Indie Writers
I know a lot of people are setting goals for how much they read, and while I think that’s really cool, that isn’t the kind of thing that works for me. I have two jobs, as well as friends and family, and a chronic illness. Setting goals like that doesn’t work for me. Instead, I want to focus on what I read.
I am an indie author, I want to read more indie authors. I want to support the little guy, as much as I can. That being said, if you have a favorite indie author, let me know!
Goal #2: Read On My Lunch Break
Anyone who read my post about having a hard time reading knows what this is about. A lot of you recommended I try reading on my lunch break (instead of scrolling through Twitter, like I usually do). I’m going to try to read on my lunch break. I am pretty sure this will be the hardest goal I’m setting. That hour goes by fast.
Goal #3: Publish Two Works
This I have to be a little more vague about, because I don’t have any timelines yet, but I do have two projects in the works that I am pretty sure I can publish this year. My real, secret, goal is to publish three, but I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself.
Goal #4: Read Before Bed
This never really worked for me as a kid because the story I was reading was always more exciting than sleeping, but I’m a grown up now. I appreciate sleep more than I appreciate–well, really anything else in the world. But I also have a bad habit of scrolling through Twitter before bed, which isn’t good for me or my eyes. I think this will be easier than the lunch break one, but we’ll see.
What about you guys? What goals do you have for 2018?
