A New Year

I've tried to write my new year post several times. I think my problem is I'm trying to make it to complicated. So here I try again and hope that simpler is better.

This year or should I say last year I had one main goal.


1. Finish my first novel draft. :( This goal was not completed.

I didn't really make a comprehensive list of goals last year. Unlike this year.


1. Finish the first draft of a novel. I think that I will be able to accomplish it this year because I have felt that I have grown so more in my writing of the last year. 

2. Post consistently. I accidentally stopped posting around October/November. I don't want to do the same thing. Hopefully the next time I take a hiatus it would be announced properly and not leave any readers unaware. 

3. Bookstagram consistently. I started bookstagramming last year without much consistency. I have enjoyed participating and joining with other bookworms in challenges and just in bookstagram. I hope that I can gain consistency as I continue to do so.

4. Outline 3 Novels. I have never plotted a full novel out before. I have always been a pantser (my computer likes autocorrecting this to Panther. It's happened before too). The problem with having several story ideas always floating around in my head means that I need to get them out at least roughly at some point. Now I just have to pick which three.

5. Keep Consistency in my school work. About third and fourth term last year I lost motivation doing school work which lead to a lot more procrastination in all areas of my life. This is definitely one thing I want not to happen this year in grade 12. 

Fun Stats and Other Details

Last year I started bookstagramming. Originally I didn't set up my instagram account for that purpose so I had set it on private. When I participated in my first bookstagram challenge it took almost the whole month for me to realise that no one else would see it. When I did set it on public I really enjoyed sharing with the bookworm community on instagram. Now I have not been at all regular with my posting on instagram sometimes going a whole month without posting other times only a few days apart. I have enjoyed seeing the likes comes in and follows as well. As of today I have 44 followers. Which is pretty exciting.
