I’d like to wish everyone a happy new year.
So this post is my 2021 goals, I don’t remember what goals I had for 2020 I just remember wanting 2019 to be over because that was a shit year. 2020 sort of follows the same thing not obviously just because corona but it’s been a hard year again. I usually don’t do that many goals but I’ve decided this year is going to be the year I begin to focus on myself again and get some things done that I wanted to do. Then at the end of 2021 we’ll recap and see how much I actually did.
- Read 52 Books.
I read 150 books in 2020 but I felt so stressed trying to read it so this year I thought I would give myself a break and go for an easy year. I have no doubt that I will achieve that goal but at least I won’t be stressed.
- Get my Netgalley library back to 0.
I have 49 books and 2 audiobooks to get through so my goal this year is to get that down and stop going on Netgalley requesting sprees.
- To be on time with ARCS
I think this one speaks for itself in terms of me and ARCS. I already have a few to read in January and I determined to stay on top of it and not be late all the time.
- To remember to post at least two times a week on the blog.
- Interact more with the book community.
So I don’t often share my writing goals on this blog but I figured we’ll put it all in one post.
- To book Escaping Reality in with my editor.
This was meant to happen in 2020 but of course 2020 was just a mess and I never got round to booking it so this year I plan to.
- To get back to writing.
The last two years have been a real struggle where writing has been concerned and I have mass periods where I haven’t been writing. This is the year I want to get back to writing and start focusing on it more instead of just doing it when I can be bothered or when the feeling catches which is very rare these days. So my goal is to get back to writing properly.
- To finish some first drafts.
I realised when I started a new story the other day I have 21 drafts that are in the process of being written. So I need to get those first drafts finished.
- Finish the read through of The Selective Mute Princess.
I’ve been doing this since like March last year so I need to finish it so I can get editing it again.
- Start the read through of Royal Mayhem.
6 years ago today I posted my first chapter of Royal Mayhem and this is the year we are going to edit it and get it ready for publishing.
- To just write.
So this is going to be some personal goals for me, that aren’t related to reading or writing.
- Be happy.
I feel like for most people it seems like a given but this year I just want to at the end of 2021 look back and think yeah I was happy.
- Start my Masters Degree
I am going back to university hopefully this year to start my masters and I am excited about it.
- Stop spending all my money on food.
I don’t mean like your food shopping either I have a terrible habit for Greggs and sweets which you know isn’t bad for a diabetic.
- Begin to save money.
I really want to start putting money aside and having sort of a rainy day fund started so this year is the year I will be beginning to save money.
So that’s my goals for 2021 let me know some of your goals in 2021. Also let me know what your goodreads goal is!
