I believe the first step to accomplishing your goals is to write them down. Even better if you share them publicly–holds you accountable. Nothing like pride to push me to finish something I told everyone I would.
This is literally how I roll.
Step one: broadcast my goals.
So here are my goals for 2020!
ONE: Publish my first book in French
I’ve been working on this one for a loooong time. It’s so different from what I usually write. Not only it’s in another language, but it’s more adult than YA, and it’s far from the fantasy realm I’m so comfortable in. It’s actually got a lot of real elements in it, things that happened to family. Or me.
It’s fiction. But kinda real. But not.
TWO: Finish the sequel to Devonna
This is kinda ridiculous. I’ve only got about 20K words left to write. And I love this book SO MUCH, I don’t even know why I stopped writing it. Oh wait, yeah, it was because of
THREE: Edit my dystopian WIP
Last year I got this crazy book idea that just POSSESSED me and I had to drop everything and write the whole book. Which I did. In less than two months. It was crazy, and amazing, but now I really need to sit down and edit this mess.
FOUR: Go to Asia
I’VE SAID IT BEFORE. I KEEP SAYING IT but for some reason I can’t bring myself to make this dream happen. But this is it.
I want 2020 to be the year I go to Asia for the first time. I’m not sure where in Asia yet, because there are so many places high on my bucket list. But it’ll happen peops. It’ll happen.
FIVE: Do a multi-day hike
I hiked a lot in 2019, and I can’t wait for the summer to get back at it. But this time, I’d like to do longer trails, which has been a dream of mine for so long, but I just never summoned the courage to go on my own.
This will definitely be an experience that will teach me a lot.
SIX: Really read the book on my TBR
You know how it goes: every year, you make a list of all the books on your shelves you need to read before you buy any new books, but then you go off and buy a hundred more and forget about your noble ambitions.
Well, I made a list of20 books to read in 2020. And I INTEND TO STICK TO IT.
That’s it for me!
What are some of your goals for 2020?
