2016 was a horrible year for me. I was battling depression and crippling anxiety and it is a year I am glad to put behind me. By the end of 2016 I decided I had had enough with all the crap going on in my life, so I cut the crap and made some positive changes. Life is too short and I am going to enjoy it.
2017 is going to be a much better year. I am already so much more relaxed – which is my new year resolution so I’m off to a good start – and it feels good.
In 2016 I wrote less, read less and blogged a whole lot less. I’m already reading and writing more so now I just have to get back to blogging more.
Writing wise the first thing I’m going to do is enter The Text Prize and if I don’t win I am going to jump back into querying.
Reading wise my goal is to read 125 books this year. I am already 6 books ahead. I have been reading like crazy during the school holidays because I will have less time once the kids go back to school (I am home schooling my son this year!)
This year is the year of the sequel for me. I have so many series on my shelves that I have started that I haven’t finished, so I want to finish those.
And of course I will be joining The Australian Women Writers Challenge again this year. I love to support Australian women writers. I’ll have a post on this soon.
Blog wise I am going to try to blog once a week at least, mostly reviews. I would like to do more but the reality at the moment is that one post a week is more realistic. If I aim for more I will probably get overwhelmed, avoid blogging and therefore blog less.
And I want to get back to hosting giveaways (I’ll have my first on Australia Day!)
So those are my goals for 2017.
What are some of your goals for this year?
