December Goals

December 2015 Goals

Reading:

I plan on reading and reviewing four books this month. Please note that these books are subject to change.

1. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
3. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
4. Crank by Ellen Hopkins

Writing:

1. Write one or two Short Story Sundays a day
2. Organize writing things

I feel the need to explain the last one — I have way too many notebooks, file folders, notes, binders, files on my flash drive, etc. that are all related to various novels that I’ve started.

To start the new year off right, I want to have all my writing things organized and neat. I have a couple of filing cabinets and shelves filled with writing stuff. Some I use, some I don’t. Some I don’t even know what’s there. I’m hoping 2016 will be the year for me with my writing so I need to go through all my things… and it’s not going to just take a couple of hours.

Blogging:

1. Prepare new 2016 features
2. Write posts for January that can be written in advance

I have a lot of new ideas for next year! I just hope I can get it all ready by the end of the month.

If you have any suggestions for topics or writing prompts for me to do for Short Story Sunday or Inspiration Station or any random day, feel free to let me know in the comments or Contact Me. I’m always looking for new ideas and I would love to hear about what you guys want to read about. Thanks!

Happy December!

  1. Interesting selection of book choices. One I’ve read, one I’ve heard of, one I want to read, and one I’ve never heard of… Hmmm… Sounds like you have a solid plan. Good luck!

      1. I liked To Kill a Mockingbird, but I didn’t really understand it in school. I want to re-read it now that I’m older and can probably appreciate it more.
        Saint Anything just came out a few months ago. Sarah Dessen is a popular author.

      2. Shane is. I just haven’t read anything by her. I think the reason I didn’t like To Kill a Mockingbird was because I did understand it and I felt the injustice of it all. Yes, I realize it was what happened during the age it depicts but it still angered me. A lot.

      3. That’s understandable. It’s a controversial topic.
        I’m reading Dorothy Must Die now and I have to say, it’s not at all what I expected.

  2. Ah looks like quite a nice read there. I’ve heard of To Kill a Mockingbird but have yet to read it. Your booklist genres are so far from me ha ha.

    Looks like you have a lot of organizing to do considering you have shelves of files with writing in them. My question then is When DON’T you write haha?

      1. Ah yes the “make your own mario game” game. How is it? I did a preview of it (as I do game reviews and previews and I’m the designated Nintendo guy for our Mag haha) and it looked very interesting but too “designy” for me.

      2. It’s a lot of fun! I really enjoy the building aspect of the game. There’s a lot people out there that try to create the most difficult level ever. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not. It’s funny to watch other people play those levels, though.

      3. Ah I see the appeal but that’s too much time invested in being THAT kind of creative haha. I’ll let my stories let that creativity out for me rather than level design.

Let me know what you think!
