Twenty-seventeen resolutions were made and some broken.
At Christmas my family talk about what each of us were grateful for the year. It has become our own little tradition and it allows us to focus on the positives.
The things I was most grateful for in twenty-seventeen were: I finished paying off a large debt, graduated from University, teaching children with special needs, bought a puppy, the constant love and support from my partner; and most important of all — I finished the draft of my first novel.
I am proud of what I accomplished but it is the time of the year to think of what lies ahead of us.
There are four goals I want to work towards in twenty-eighteen, and they are:
1.Upload One Post a Week on my blog – I looked at the statistics of the last 6 months for my blog and they were depressing. In July I uploaded 19 posts. This goal is more realistic and achievable.
2. Each month, finish editing four chapters of my novel – I want to achieve more than this but having the minimum safety net of four chapters will keep me motivated if a month has been full of events and distractions.
3.Finish a short story a month – Every writers goal should be to write. I want to write more on other projects apart form my novel. A short story a month would be ideal.
4.Spend more time with the partner – Twenty-seventeen was full of events, distractions, achievements and work. Next year I want to spend more time with my partner, quality time like camping, warm moments and new skills.
