New Year’s Resolutions For 2018

It’s that time of the year again where I make a few resolutions and try not to break them all within two weeks.

Blogging

I still want to blog as often as possible. Of course, some days are easier than others. But I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. I want to write more posts, but I’ll try to read more as well. Pinky promise.

Reading

I set my 2018 Goodreads challenge to 38 books. I’m hoping to read every day. That being said, quality trumps quantity. I plan on expanding my narrow horizons. I’d like to dabble in other genres I don’t typically reach for. I might even read a nonfiction book or two.

Reviewing

I’ve only been reviewing books for several months. My plan is to keep going. In a perfect world, I’d catch up and publish reviews soon after finishing the book. A reader can dream.

Writing

Every year, I strive to get someone to publish something. I may have some exciting news to share in the spring of 2018. I couldn’t be more excited. I’m going to submit to contests and competitions every chance I get. Even though I’m focusing on scholarships this year, I still have stories I want to share with the world.

To be honest, before writing this post, I felt a bit down and discouraged. But listing my goals has reinvigorated me.

I can’t predict the future, but by this time next year, I like to think I can look back at some accomplishments.

As always, I’m grateful and thankful beyond words. Here’s to making and keeping your resolutions. I’m all for online accountability. Have an awesome 2018!

      1. Thanks, Herminia! I’d love to read a post by you about finding publishers for short pieces. Maybe you’ve already written one? If not…. 🙂

  1. Good luck on your New Years resolutions, especially the one about reading more.

    Hopefully you win a comp and have your book published. 🙂 Wouldn’t we all love to.

  2. Instead of making resolutions at the beginning of the year that are supposed to be kept up with for the whole year, I’m going to try to set shorter term goals as the year progresses. I’ll try to let you know how that turns out.
