My goals and plans for 2019
Well, it’s the start of another year. And before you get stressed out thinking about what has to be done; let’s think about what you’ve already accomplished. You wrote 12 stories of more than 1500 words each last year. You bought a house! You passed your first class for your endorsement. You’ve had some great accomplishments!
Now let’s break it down and look at what you’d like to accomplish this year.
You and Float On Alright agreed to cut the word count for "12 Stories in 12 Months" [E] waaaay down. With only 500 words a month required, there’s no reason you shouldn’t get your story done each month. In addition, you’ve got your classwork each month. And maybe some other writing?
Your Writing Goals This Year
12 Stories—1 per month
Finishing Leave—1 every other month
Writing Christmas in July stories (Tag)
Finishing whatever comment fic you’ve decided on (and not pulling ANYMORE!)--since Sunday is Lonely Prompt--fill a couple if you've finished homework on those days.
You’ve managed to dig Blood Oath out of mothballs, now you need to do something with it. Go back, read it, take a red pen to it. And by the end of this year, make some major changes.
Your Editing Goal This Year
Blood Oath—mostly edited by the end of the year
Break down—3 chapters a month beginning in March
Now lastly school. You put off grad school this semester because Auburn turned out not to be the right fit. And there were the family issues. Meanwhile, you still have the endorsement classes to finish so it was probably better in the long run.
Your School Goals
2nd Endorsement Class—finishing March 24
3rd Endorsement Class—finishing June 23
50 hours of Field Work—finish by May 1
Apply to grad school—Have all paperwork finished by September 1st to turn in (ideally it would be good to re-apply to Valdosta and also to NCCU).
There are a lot of things you’d like to accomplish this year. But laying it out like this shows you have a good grasp of what needs to be done to accomplish your goals. You’ve got calendars and goal sheets, use them to map out what needs to be done each month.
You’ll still be working. And you’ve got vacations and family obligations, but there’s no reason you can’t have a successful year.
