Yes, this is one of those end-of-the-year, reflection, resolutions posts. I know a lot of people do these and you'll probably get tired of them quickly, but I feel like if I say out loud, to the public, what I want to do in the coming year, I might actually feel obligated to DO those things. So here we go.
1. Writing: I need to be more disciplined with my writing. I will stick to a schedule. I will push through the tough times and get those words down because:
I also want to try some different things this coming year. A big goal for me is to write a comic book script. Because, ya know:
*insert gif of Jay yelling, "COMIIIICS!!!" from Mallrats.
I couldn't find one and it makes me sad all day.
Get on that, internet!*
2. Reading: I have been really lazy about reading for a while. Like the last time I finished reading a novel was over the summer, I think. I did go on a comics binge the other day, though. House of Mystery is phenomenal, btw. But King is right. I'm officially setting a goal for myself. I shall read at least 50 books in 2014! It has been said and so it shall be!
3. Blogging: December 22nd is this blog's THREE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Holy crap! I'm not sure if 2013 really counts since I barely posted anything at all, but I'm counting it, so there. Three years ago, I set out to blog very consistently about my adventures in writing. And it went well for the first year. Then I got busy and kind of let this blog go unchecked. But this coming year will be different!
I will blog at least once a week! You heard me, ONCE A WEEK!
I'm not promising that it will always be about books or writing because I have to save all my good literary talk for The Secret Life of Writers blog (which you should totally check out). But there will be something here at least once a week.
There are tons of other things I want to accomplish or improve upon in the coming year, but they're the boring ones like losing weight, eating healthier, changing out of my pajamas before 3pm at least twice a week, etc. So, I won't bother you with those, BUT I do want to hear your resolutions for the new year! Tell meeeeeeee because I'm a great listener!
