You guys, this is just another sign that I’m a half-lame blogger. Two weeks in to January and I’m just now writing a goals post? Hanging my head in shame here folks.
My Big/Main GOALS:
~ get my first book published this year –whether this means self-published or traditional, or a small publishing company (my preference!)
~ Have my second book written in full – now, since it took me three years to write the first one, I feel like this is a big goal for me but what with having the Ninja Writers and the Plotting Workshop (which I wouldn’t have either of these without Shaunta Grimes, so a big shout out to her!) I feel like this is an attainable goal.
~Lose weight/get healthier – this is honestly a tricky one for me and my Lyme disease/migraine body. I am hoping I will be able to lose the weight with the bacteria wreaking havoc, and that I will be able to beat the little suckers like my doctor thinks I will.
My littler/baby step goals:
~Make writing a habit most every day – I’m not going to push myself and say everyday because sometimes this worn-out body of mine demands a day (or more) of rest, which typically means flat on my back on the couch, but I digress.
~Grow my blog traffic! – pretty basic one here. Grow SGL til it’s a real community!
~Start a book club on SGL – this is one that I probably won’t start til later on in the year but it’s an idea that’s percolating!
~Read more books on Messianic Jewish living – like Restoring the Jewishness of the Gospel,
And, for kicks and giggles, a few monthly goals that I want to shoot for:
~Write a one-page letter to a new person – I was on Instagram earlier this week and saw someone was doing this as a daily thing. Now, I love and adore snail mail (sending and receiving) so I’m taking his idea and making it fit what I can do. One letter a month. Now I have a reason to stock up on stationary. (that might have been a motivator all by itself)
~Try a new recipe – time to try all those recipes I’ve been pinning!
And now, because I just can’t resist sharing a few photos of the big snowstorm this week:
I’m thinking of compiling a 2017 TO-READ BOOK LIST, what with my goal of reading 52 books again this year!
What’s your goal(s) for 2017? Share them in the comments, I’d love to hear them!
