These were my reading and writing goals for 2015:
1. Write 250 words each day(1750 total words per week)
I did not attain this goal. I continue to struggle with daily writing practice. I can maintain a daily practice for a few days and then it just dies away. I started the year out with writing prompts and discovered that does not work for me :)
I have joined online communities to help me stay on track, and they work for a while but eventually the motivation seems to just die away. I have lots of excuses, but they are really just excuses. When I think of how much time I sit idly in a day, I know that I could easily write 250 words each day. I am easily distracted and I have a difficult time following through. I hope to work on both of these problems in the new year.
Wow! I actually attained half of this goal. I completed the first draft of ZF. It is not ready for anyone to read or even glance at it yet, but it is complete. I made some good progress on DOVH and I started the next one even though I probably should not start something new without first finishing the old. Anyway, in the new year I will continue working on DOVH and I will start the editing process with ZF. And of course I will continue starting new projects before completing the old ones :)
3. Read at least 30 books.
This was my most successful goal. If you read my post from yesterday then you know that I exceeded my reading goal this year. I read 35 books, and I am super proud of myself. Click on the image to visit my Pinterest page of books I read in 2015.
Ok, this one I am calling a win. I may not have posted twice a week every week this year, but by the end of the year I had a posting schedule blocked out and I stuck to it for a few weeks. I feel really good about the schedule and plan to continue it into the new year.
