2018 Writing Goals

Welcome to 2018 everyone!

With the new year comes new goals. I’m one to start the new goals, but never quite remember them. So, hopefully writing them all down – or at least writing my writing goals down – will help.

  • Get another Beta Reader
    • As I’ve mentioned here before, beta readers are an amazing tool for any novel. I’d love to get another beta reader to dive into my novel once again. Beta readers are a great way to get the one-on-one writing advice we all need.
  • Get the courage to send a query letter
    • Query letters can be scarier than all haunted houses in America put together into a Jumbo Haunted Mansion. Agents are usually known to give out hundreds of rejections a day as well. I’m not saying my query letter has to be accepted, but I at least need to get my foot in the water.
  • Read at least 51 books
    • I came short of this goal this year. I read about 47 books instead and had almost no time to squeeze in those last few books. However, this year, I will blow this goal away.
  • Participate in NaNoWriMo
    • Last year, I wasn’t able to write for NaNoWriMo since I already had too much on my plate as it is. However, I shouldn’t have too much on my plate this year compared to last year.
  • Get a short story published
    • This goal is huge. Not only would doing this look amazing on a query letter, but it’s just great to slowly get my name out there. This one would be difficult to do though, but I think my time has come.
