This will mark the first blog post I’ve written in three weeks. That’s the longest I’ve gone without contributing to The Scribblings since I started blogging again two years ago.
I’m carrying over the majority of last month’s goals into this month, although with one or two small tweaks.
Without dwelling on the failures of 2017, I’m trying to make my 2018 goals reflective of what I learned from last year, not just what I ideally want to accomplish.
A lot of things that I wanted to get done this past year didn’t work out. I could go on about what I think my failings were, but I won’t. Not that I don’t think there’s value in acknowledging my mistakes, quite the opposite, but dwelling on them doesn’t do me too much good either. I’d rather close out the year and move into the new one on a more positive note.
I ran into a bit of a roadblock when it came to working on my goals for December.
I’ve had two consecutive months where I’m spectacularly failed to accomplish the goals that I’ve been setting for myself. Which, as you might understand, has made me a bit wary of what I set myself for October.
I’m going to start off with an assumption but I think it’s a reasonable one. If you’re a writer, then you most likely have a web page or blog of some kind. The question is; what are you posting on it?
I got a nice little surprise the other morning. The very generous Raimey Gallant nominated me for a Liebster Award. I guess this means I’m doing something halfway decent with this page.
As with many people, even so often something crops up in my Facebook notifications that makes me annoyed. I had such an occasion this past weekend.
Ever since I read Caroliena Cabeda’s post for the #AuthorToolboxBlogHop last month, it’s been in the back of my mind to get a more structured schedule in place. I keep thinking something like that would help me remember to do the little things (more on those below) that I know I should be making time for but get pushed aside in favour of more immediate concerns.
