Oh my gosh, this took me forever to write. It took me a pandemic to write. These are my goals for 2020.
How did the goals I set for 2019 go?
This color means it’s done
This color means it’s in progress.
I generally don’t like resolutions. But I do like their cousin, annual challenge! I’ve chosen several challenges to pursue over the past few years, and think its valuable to keep the trend going. I have updated my challenges from 2018, and am armed this New Year’s Day with a mimosa and a small bowl of Chex mix.
I have been lax on these goals, some of them. But, in my mind, the year is still young, and these things can still be done. Most of them. >wink<
My friend’s daughter is six and has a bucket list. On it is a beach where flamingos walk amongst you. She’s three or four years older then Wee One, so WO wouldn’t be down for that yet, but I got to thinking about other things that would be on her bucket list. These are the things she never says no to, no matter her mood seconds prior.
Every year, I set a certain number of “challenges,” or projects to accomplish. As the year goes on, I update how I’m going on the challenges, and write about a couple of them. I would love for you to join me! I could only come up with 10 for this year, though I might add some as the year progresses.
I haven’t done an official Share Your World in awhile, (not to be confused with the traditional sharing I do as a part of blogging) so let’s go!!
As I was writing my post for yesterday, I thought back on the 1/4 novel I wrote for NaNo a few years ago. I have thought about it over the years and revisited it a few times, done some light research for the time period, but not a lot else.
I’m holding off because I like having it there. I like having something promising and potential.
For the past several years, I have devised a set of annual goals. I’ve usually done 52/52, so one goal for each week. Last year, I had a difficult time thinking of 52 goals, so this year, I’ll narrow it down to 24 in 12 months, so two a month.
I invite you to join me – you can do 12/12, 365/365, x/x! Just what ever you want! Then, as I accomplish them, I’ll update the page, and probably add a post or two about it.
When Cohiba and I moved to Ohio this fall, I said, when we get there, I’m going to give writing a more serious go. I have always really wanted to do it and now we have someone to be with Wee One. I meant to do more on this blog, which I am, but also in fiction.
For the first time today, I submitted my first piece to several competitions/publications.
