Hey guys and welcome to Blogmas day 28. So as 2019 is just around the corner, I decided that I wanted to set some goals for the new year. I have so much I want to achieve in 2019, some rather big whilst others are small. You’ll have to watch this space to see if I stick to them and I’ll be reviewing the goals later on throughout the year..
This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while, and I decided that 2019 was the perfect time to start doing so. By a review I mean anything from a longer review or even just a couple of sentences. I think it will also come in handy with any series books I’ll read and need a refresher when the next book is released.
I’m excited but also terrified of this prospect. Taking my blog to the next level was something I was always planning on doing, I just wanted to make sure it was something I was fully invested in. After having my blog consistently for a year I’ve decided that 2019 is the year to take the plunge. I’m not entirely sure when this will happen exactly, but I know it will be sometime in 2019.
I would love to read more than this goal – but I wanted to keep the goal manageable. 2018 wasn’t the best reading year for me – in between a huge move and starting 2 university modules, I haven’t always had the concentration or time to read the books I want to. Hopefully 2019 will be a better reading year and I’ll get to read more than my goal.
I love reading other people’s posts. It’s great to read about other peoples experiences and thoughts on different topics. In 2019, I want to start commenting more and interacting. I think it’s so important to build others bloggers up – just like they do with you.
Back in October I finished my outline of my first full length novel and began writing my first draft. I’m making decent headway so I’m pretty sure I’ll have it finished in 2019. It’s a YA fantasy so there’s a lot of intricate detail to make it work, but I’m excited about it and proud of how it’s going so far.
I actually got this idea when I was playing a video game. I became obsessed with how the story progressed and the ideas that just seemed to appear from nowhere. I’m outlining this alongside writing the Mariah Kingdom and will be starting writing it when I’ve finished the Mariah Kingdom.
I’ve wrote some short stories in the past but not many, and that’s something I want to change in 2019. I also want to work on my confidence in my writing ability – so I want to try and enter some writing competitions.
So like every year I’ll be taking part in the Goodreads challenge. However, I’m also going to give the Popsugar reading challenge a go too. I love the idea of searching for a book that fits in with each prompt. The link is here if it’s something you’d like to take a look at.
What are some goals you want to achieve in 2019?
