This year already promises to be really hectic, so I’m keeping things simple:
Write more short stories
Pretty self-explanatory. For now my ideas are mostly fantasy, but I’d love to branch out and try some other genres--sci-fi, contemporary, or maybe even historical fiction. I also want to quit stressing over publication and enjoy the actual writing process more.
Start a longer project
At first my goal was to finish a longer project this year, but then I realized I’d have a hard enough time starting one. So my resolution is to begin working on an idea that I actually like (no matter how much it scares me) and stick with it.
I’ve never officially made New Year’s resolutions before, especially writing-related ones. I’m a huge procrastinator, even when it comes to goals I want to meet. But I’m excited to begin working on new stories, and I hope that 2016 will be as good (if not better) than 2015!
What are your goals for the new year?
