Happy December 1st, everyone!
With the winter season truly upon us along with the holiday season, there is a lot to do, but that doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task nor does it need to be stressful. It also means that yesterday was the official end of NaNoWriMo 2018.
I had a goal to add 50,000 words to my existing word count on a project I’ve been working on with the incredibly Laura Lee (co-creator of the web comic Ghost Junk Sickness), but with work and the stress of readjusting to several major life changes, I sadly did not reach that goal. I did a ton of writing giving the level of work I’d been putting into other things, and am still very proud of myself. I tried my best and did as well as I could and I’m teaching myself that that is good enough. That as an author I am good enough.
I have smaller goals this month since working in retail means working even harder this time of year, but they are goals all the same.
My writing goal is to finish three more chapters by the end of the year rather than focusing on word count.
My reading goal is 11 more books to reach my challenge target on GoodReads of 100.
My self-care goals are to be more disciplined in keep my work areas at home tidy in order to stay clear headed and focused.
My social goals are to get out of the house more often and reconnect with those in my life who care for me and I for them.
These are all simply goals I want to bring into the New Year at the end of this December since it may be the last month of 2018, it’s not the end of anything. Especially not the end of trying hard to hit marks that mean something to me.
What are your remaining goals for 2018? Let me know in the comments!
