2015 is almost upon us and it is the time of year to start making resolutions and little changes to our lives that we plan to stick to, most of the time those resolutions are broken by the end of January but the important thing is that we tried. Personally I love New Year because it gives us all a good kick up the backside to try to change and improve ourselves.
I have made a few resolutions this year and because a lot of them are book or writing related I decided to share them with you.
1. Read 50 Books
I do a reading challenge every year. Last year my goal was to read 35 books, which I completed, and this year my goal was to read 40 books but I ended up reading 46 instead. I was tempted to set my goal to 45 books for 2015 but since I managed to surpass that this year by accident I think I should read 50 books instead. It is a little intimidating because it is close to reading a book a week but I am still super excited about attempting it.
If you want to follow my progress in the challenge you can follow me on GoodReads at: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/14163098-bernadette-donnelly
Or just feel free to add me on there in general, the more book friends the better.
2. Write More
I failed at NaNoWriMo this year. I don’t consider it an entire loss though because doing NaNoWriMo got me thinking about writing and coming up with ideas again which are good things. I only failed in that I didn’t meet the goal of 50,000 words. I really want to get back into writing properly again and I have ideas for dozens of stories in my head I just need to get them out onto paper. I am going to really try to write this year, even if it takes me all of 2015 to write a first draft of a novel. It will still be writing.
3. Blog More
I need to get back into some sort of blogging routine, not only for this blog but also for a folklore blog I run. I can be good at sticking to a routine most of the time but lately everything has been a little crazy and I know that I need to fix that.
Also I need to think about the content of this blog. I love running it but I am still new to the whole book blogging thing so if there is anything you would like to see less or more of on here feel free to let me know in the comments, or in my ask box on Tumblr, the link is in the sidebar. Would you like more reviews? More lists? More tags? Would you like to see more of me as a person? I honestly have no idea so some tips would be appreciated.
I hope you all have a brilliant 2015 and I will see you in it!
