My goals for December + new writing challenge?

Dee's Journal, Personal

November has come and gone and almost took my dreams with it.

My major goal for last year was to participate in and win #NaNoWriMo2019 which I shared on my Instagram. But, I failed.

I got through the first six days and after that, it was like my mind just closed that chapter. I didn’t even know when November ended.

I only got around 10k words in which is quite pathetic but actually.

Now we’re in December and it’s another time to set goals, but not for the new year.

I realise that when the year starts to end, I start pushing goals to the next year for New Year Resolutions but I’m not doing that this year.

For the first time in a long time, I have December goals. And here they are:

  1. Get up to 30,000 words with my novel WIP
  2. To blog everyday of this month. This is to try to improve my consistency and writing skills. Honestly, with the way my writing has been going, I can’t even call myself a writer out loud.
  3. Show up no matter what. I have a really bad habit of hiding away when things get to tough or uncomfortable for me.

And that’s it. 3 simple goals for this festive month. Easy right? Right?

What are your goals for this month? Or are you pushing them to the next year?

I cannot count the number of times, writing work has been delegated to me all because I claim to be a writer.  “Help me write this, Dee.”  “Help me go through this, Dee.”  “Does this sentence make me sound like I have a stick up my butt?”  And so...

Serial Story (Sons of War -working title)

Hey, everyone. I wrote this story over a year ago. Just went through it today and decided it was pretty neat. Read and let me know in the comments if you think I should build it up as a serial story (story that gets released like film episodes). Lay low, go far away,...
