Goals for 2018
At the start of the new year, my writers' group devoted its weekly meeting to setting and sharing our goals for the year. I missed that meeting, but I have been thinking about what goal I would set if I had been there. And while I'm not big on setting new year's resolutions for the sake of them, I do think that they can be helpful in terms of focusing on specific goals and staying accountable to them.
So, after some thought, I've decided that my goal for 2018 is to publish Sophie and Spot. I recognize that creativity tends to set its own time frame, but considering that I've already written about 90-95% of it and have critiqued nearly all of that, I think it's reasonable to assume that I will be able to finish the last bit of writing and critiquing, and then work through the revision process so I can publish it this year.
Also, on a broader scale, my overall goal this year is to be devoted to creativity and find joy in creating things. I have had a lot of new ideas recently for stories I want to write in the future, and am excited to see them develop page by page. I am looking forward to immersing myself in reading, writing, exploring new adventures, and creating.
What about you? What are you looking forward to creating this year?
