My writing goals for 2018

You may recall that last year I decided to set myself some writing goals, which unfortunately, for the most part, I failed at miserably. Rather than letting that defeat me, however, I thought I would set myself some goals again this year, with a view to helping me focus. I no longer have study taking up my writing time, but I do have Netflix distractions, so I need to find some balance and set out to achieve. I keep talking about wanting to write, but rarely do I set aside time to do so, so I really need to stop procrastinating and start doing! You might therefore notice that a lot of these have carried over from last year.

Checking in on my writing goals

Back in January I set myself some writing goals for this year – goals that I thought were realistic and achievable. With May already upon us I thought it was a good opportunity to check in and see how things are going (hint: badly) and to reset some of the goals if needed (hint: this is needed). So without further ado, it is time to rip this bandage off and rub salt into the wound of my neglected writing goals (and my lack of sleep means poor clichés)!

My writing goals for 2017

I was recently inspired by this post from Natasha Lester to set myself some writing goals for the first time. As someone who works best when I have a deadline, and having recently been introduced to bullet journalling, I figured now was as good a time as any to focus on, and actively make time for, some realistic writing goals. 2017 will, however, be a busy year for me given that I need to finish my thesis and I’m also getting married, so I needed these goals to be realistic and, hopefully, achievable.

Losing the plot

Not only has my blogging been extremely sporadic of late, but so has my writing in general. The reason? I have completely lost the plot. Obviously I don’t mean in the literal sense (that would just be weird), but I have lost my direction and am questioning what I had begun. Has this happened to you?
