Wow look at me!! Blogging two times in one week after being gone for so long!! No promises it will last.
Today I am going to be checking in with some goals I made at the beginning of the year. A lot has changed since then because I’ve been in the high pressure situation of high school final exams. (dun dun daaaa).
Read 50 Books // I’m at fifteen at the moment…soooo….. it’s not looking great. But look, I have a plan. I’m going to have 4 months that I will have a lot more free time (after exams and during our study time just before) so hopefully I can get the majority of my reading done then. And if not, I’m not going to push myself too hard.
Physical TBR Below 10 // hahahahahaahahaha we all know this is never going to happen. I would like to get my physical TBR down because I might be moving interstate next year and I don’t want to have to bring all these books I haven’t read with me. I will probably focus on this after my exams.
Finish 1 First Draft // This is definitely possible. I have been doing a bit more writing recently and my main project (yeah that one I’ve been working on for like 3 years now) is at 15k with the rest pretty much outlined. Fingers crossed I pull my head into the game and keep going.
Finish Editing One Manuscript // This relies on me actually finishing one… but I know I find editing easier than drafting so if I push through my first draft I might actually achieve this?? Or at least get part way through.
Send Out 5 Queries // I feel like I should cut this goal altogether. This is a goal for next year, when I don’t have massive exams.
Outline Two Novels // Does it count that I have the plot points figured out for my main project?? I’m going to say yes. So this goal is 50% completed. I have a lot more ideas ticking away, and I actually did outline part of one project before realising I didn’t like it.
Reach 500 Followers // I’m currently at 375, which considering I haven’t been here at all is good. If I get back into blogging regularly them maybe??
Publish 100 Posts in 2018 // This is my 13th… woops… I guess I am going to have to do a daily blogging thing for a while to meet this goal. I’ll deal with that later…maybe December???
Have 15k Views in 2018 // I’m barely at 2000, which I am not surprised by considering I haven’t blogged much this year at all.
Host a Give Away // Hasn’t happened yet. Maybe later in the year.
