Okay, so it’s finally 2015, and I know it’s a few weeks late, but after all the busy excitement that was Christmas and New Year, it’s time to take a breather and reflect back on the, um, interesting year that was 2014. Don’t worry this isn’t going to be a gushy post about how 2014 was such an incredible year for me (because quite frankly, it was a mixed bag) and I’m not going to go on rabbit on about it being new year, new me. (If you really wanted to change something, why wait until New Year to do it? Just saying.)
Anyway, yes New Year. It’s generally the time to make New Year resolutions and forget all about them by February. As you can probably tell by the last paragraph, I’m not one for making New Year resolutions. Also, when I do, I tend to make them around my birthday because I find I’m more likely to keep them, it’s weird. But this year, just because I can, I am going to make an exception and make a couple of simple (and hopefully easy to keep) resolutions. So in no particular order *cue fanfair*, they are:
1. To get back into a regular writing habit.
2. To get back into a regular blogging routine.
3. Finish my online novel writing course.
4. Read The Silmarillion and actually finish it this time.
There. I think those are all very doable and realistic goals. I really want to get back to a semi regular blogging routine because I have a lot of ideas for this blog and the direction I want to take it in. Also, I miss having a regular writing habit and I can’t let my characters all fall into oblivion now can I? Besides, I know that finishing the first draft is only half the battle but it’s still better than having yet another unfinished novel lying forgotten on my laptop. And by finishing something I’ve started, I know I’m already doing better than the people who keep saying they want to write but never actually start. Right?
Well, I think that’s it from me for the time being. Sorry for yet another brief rambling post I will try and get back to a regular blogging pattern again. I know I’ve been saying that for months now, but it’s hard trying to fit writing around work and seeing friends.
