Reading Goals For 2015
1. Read at least 150 Books
I’ve read since forever, but for the first time in forever, I’m going to properly keep track of how many books I’ve read during a year. Yup, I’ve never done it properly before, either stopping and starting or just forgetting and being lazy. I’ve always read a lot, probably more than 150, but this will be my goal to start off with.
2. Review at least 100 Books On My Blog
*nods* I want to review most of the books I read, and of course share them with you all.
A vague goal that I should have is to read across more genres, and also more non-fiction. But to be honest with you, that’s always on my goals and resolutions list, but I never achieve it properly. It’s still in mind though!
Writing Goals For 2015
1. Rewrite, edit, polish, etc, my still unnamed NaNo 2014 novel
The fairytale retelling that I have high hopes for. Hehe, just joking. But I really do want to work on the retelling a lot, I had a lot of fun in November working on it, and it’s something I want to finish.
2. Start and continue at least one other project
I’ve tried to make my goals less vague, but I really don’t know what this project will be. Perhaps another fantasy? A contemporary that’s out of my comfort zone? A mystery? It will definitely be one off my writing wishlist though.
3. Win NaNoWriMo for the 4th year in a row
Another vague-ish one, as I don’t know what goal I’m aiming for yet, but I do know that I definitely want to participate and win NaNo again. I’ve changed views and thoughts about some things to do with NaNo, but what doesn’t change is my competitiveness to win, yet again.
And lastly on top of my other writing goals, there is one thing that I want to achieve the most: write every day in 2015, starting from day one. Tomorrow. Obviously writing a lot each day would be welcome, but what I really want to do is just to manage to write every day.
Blogging Goals For 2015
1. Reach 300 followers
I know that blogging is certainly not only about followers, and it most definitely isn’t the thing that I care about most, but it would be awesome to increase reader and minion-ship.
2. Continue receiving review copies from publishers/authors
I received my first three review copies from Oxford University Press last week- thank you so much! Expect reviews shortly.
3. Receive my first ARC
…Need I say more? This would be absolutely awesome, although I’m not sure anyone would be willing to give me one unless I have more minions. Which leads me to my first goal.
Amongst all this, I will like to try and blog around 4-5 times each week, and maintain that. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but I’m going to work hard to eliminate and minimize hiatuses.
Other Goals For 2015
1. Do Duolingo German every day
I want to continue many streaks this year, and this is another one. Also, it would be awesome to finish my German tree as well, and I think it shouldn’t be too hard if I do a little every day.
2. Read the Bible every day
I should be doing this anyway, but I always start and stop. This probably should be my biggest goal, as well, but anyway. I shall work on this.
3. Exercise Regularly- Around 3 times a week
The three times don’t include my gymnastics sessions, which are two times a week, 4 1/2 hours in total. What I really want to do here, again, is emphasize the regularly part.
4. Keep up with everything, and improve my self esteem and self motivation
This is pretty much everything I really need to do mentally wise. I know that I won’t be able to avoid being stressed out completely, but I want to try to keep it to a minimum. I also really want to be improve my self esteem, although I know that’s going to be a slow and hard process. I’m a fairly self motivated person, but sometimes procrastination gets the better of me… *sighs* One can dream, no?
Ta da! These are my goals and resolutions for 2015. With my horrible memory, I’m confident that I left something out, so this post will probably be edited, or either something will be added in one of my monthly goals post, or my mid-year goals post.
Also, I’ve been meaning to join in on some Top Ten Tuesdays, so what a coincidence that this week’s prompt (Top Ten Goals/Resolutions) was what I was going to post, anyway! It’s already Wednesday here, but still Tuesday for my American friends. So yes, I’m linking up with this awesome meme! (Despite the fact that there are more than ten goals.)
And tell me, what are your goals for 2015?
Or if you’re Shim, just ignore. 😛
