January Goals

I did say I’d be doing some January specific goals, didn’t I?

One thing that I don’t want to do; month in, month out, is just do a boiled down version of the annual goals. For one thing, that would be far too easy. For another, that would be pretty boring for those of you reading this. While I expect there’s always going to be some overlap (after all, I can’t hit the big goals without the smaller ones) I’m going to do my best to keep things as fresh as possible. How that’s going to pan out, well, I dare say we’ll find out eventually.

  • Write 2 book reviews.

Having said all that, my first goal for January comes straight from the 2017 goal list. Well, I’ve rarely claimed to be consistent. But I do want to be consistent about the reviews.

  • Write fiction every day.

I was wondering earlier how long I can continue using the same goal each month. The simplest answer was until I’m consistently (is this a theme starting?) accomplishing it. I didn’t get this one last month so there’s all the more reason to put it down for this month.

  • Write up my notes for the beta-read.

Last month I agreed to do a beta-read on a new novel. Technically, I was asked to do it in November but I was graciously allowed to finish my attempt at NaNoWriMo first. I’ve already read the book and made some notes as I was doing so. I just need to put them together in a deliverable fashion. I really want to get this one done, not just for the author who trusted me to do but also for me, since I’ve thought about volunteering before and I want to know if I should do so again.

There are others I could include; read some, make a start on House in Exile; but they’re already more or less covered by the ones above. So, for this month, I’ll leave things there.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours lately, yet I
    never discovered any interesting article like yours. It is
    lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent
    content as you probably did, the web will likely be
    a lot more helpful than ever before.
