I think the list really helped me get motivated to push through with writing this year. So I want to make another list, this time of things I want to do in 2014.
In 2014, I will
Finish my NaNo Novel
Win a NaNoWriMo
Edit my first novel
Win a Go Teen Writers 100-for-100 contest
Do major revisions on another novel
Reach 100 Blog followers (89, currently)
Reach 100 Twitter followers (61, currently)
Host a monthly Twitter Chat (Click here for more info)
Write at least 1K a week
Read 50 books, about 4 a month
Query literary agents with at least one project
Enter a writing contest (if possible)
Publish at least 250 blog posts (This is #160)
Read at least one craft book
Go to a book signing, if possible
Participate in some kind of writer event, if possible
That's my list of things I want to accomplish. At some point I will probably add some sort of timeline. Right now I'm focusing on finishing my NaNo novel first drafts.
I would really encourage you to make some kind of list of your own. I find them really helpful.
What are some of your 2014 goals? I'd love to know! Or if you make a similar post, please leave me the link.
Thanks for reading!
