My mind is pretty much always buzzing with grand ideas of what I want to do, but the start of a new year not only amplifies it, but adds a small layer of shame for all of my unfinished projects, writing or otherwise. This year is no exception, though I am trying to be nicer on myself.

This year again, I am participating in the Get your Words Out challenge (if you want in, inscription closes January 15th). This is an active community of writers with numerous pledges for the year, both in word count goals and days written goals depending on your preferences. I broke an escalating stride with a lost this year, with only 231 days written on my 240 days pledge, so of course this year I went for the next pledge with 350 days. It could be a disaster. 🙂

18 diverse books and author reading challenge

I will also participate in a diversity reading challenge. If you have a book that fit it the categories, don’t hesitate to drop a comment. It can be yours or someone else.

I’m also hoping to open an Etsy shop for some craft I’m doing. More on that later.

I am also going to attempt to do a Jenna Moreci inspired quarterly goals list. To summarize, every three months you set 10 to 20 goals. To count the quarter as a success, you need to accomplish at least half of your list. I am going to make a separate post on the blog for this.

I may not have accomplish everything I wanted, but I think I did some groundwork so that I will this year, and I am hopeful for 2019.
