As always, TTT is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is top ten bookish goals for 2013. I only came up with six, but if I do all those things, it’ll be quite a busy year.
1. Read fifty books
-I read 104 this past year. You’re probably thinking, why the step back? Well, I’ll probably far exceed that, but I’m planning to do a little less reading, a little more of everything else, and a lot more writing. Plus, during my hundred goal I definitely felt pressured for a few months. And reading shouldn’t be like that. I read because it calms and relaxes me.
2. Finish writing my book
-Seriously. Finish the first draft. Finish editing.
3. Blog Design Overhaul
-Or at least a logo. New year, new look.
4. Post at least three times a week
-Now that I work full-time, it’s going to be a little more challenging to keep up with this blog.
5. Do more posts about writing
-Hopefully, with the less reading, I’ll have more time to devote to coming up with ideas for these types of posts.
6. Get back to going to local reading/writing events around San Diego
-After I graduated, I kind of fell out of that. It’ll be harder now, but I’m sure I could manage to go to a few.
Good luck with your writing, Shannon! I also have a goal to finish my first draft of my novel this year. Fingers crossed we both reach the finish line 🙂 And I really like your goal to write more blog posts about writing. I always mean to do that, but then I don’t get around to it. I’m excited to read yours, and hopefully I’ll get inspired to write some writing-themed posts as well!
Ah I hope you reach your draft goal, too!
Six is plenty to keep track of when you’re working full time. Just never enough hours. SY hi to San Diego fr me – I was there on holiday in 2011.
