It’s a little bit early in December, but never too early to make goals for next year. This is a series I’m introducing in December so I’ll be talking about my writing goals, blogging goals and general life goals.
Mostly, there are things I hope to accomplish in 2018 or things I’d like to try out to see if it works or to see if I like it. First up, I’ll be talking about my writing goals and then my reading goals and then my life goals. Fingers crossed I accomplish everything I set out to
1. Participate in Nanowrimo
Since starting my blog, I’ve been hearing all about Nanowrimo after not hearing about it ever. I was a huge fanfiction writer when I was younger and I’d like to take a stab at original fiction. I have a few ideas in my head but I’ve never tried to put words on the page. In 2018, I’d like to get my ideas together, form a plan and actually participate in Nanowrimo. It seems like it could be something fun and a great way to spend November.
2. Narrow down topics for my NFL book
One thing I’ve been thinking about doing for years is writing a book about the NFL. I won’t give away too much on the topic, but it’s pretty niche. I have a general overlying topic but I don’t really have a central focus on it. As broad of a topic, as it is, I’d like to be able to narrow it down to a couple topics and branch out from there.
It might take me a few months, but even getting a headstart would be awesome.
3. Find a writing buddy
I’ve always wanted someone to write with and bounce ideas off of. I’ve talked to a few people but nothing has really panned out. Finding someone to talk to about my writing, my issues and reading my work would be a huge help. I’ve always loved talking about and learning more about my writing so I’d like to have someone else help me out with it.
4. To improve my grammar
Last but not least, I’d love to improve my grammar. I do use a grammar checker but it’s been a huge struggle for me. One professor in college wouldn’t stop pointing it out. It was so annoying and I’d like to fix it. It’s a huge part of the writing process and one I’d like to improve upon so I can become a more successful writer.
What are some of your writing goals for 2018? I’d like to hear yours and if you have any tips for mine. 😀
