My Goals for 2018

This past year has been a productive year for me as a writer. I wrote and/or revised several picture books, revised my middle grade verse novel, wrote 50,000 words during National Novel Writing Month, got two book deals, and received my first ever royalty check!

It was also a good year for me personally. I read a lot of great books, celebrated my oldest child's graduation from college, stayed healthy, made new friends, got to visit with old friends, became more organized and less stressed, and just enjoyed life overall.

I'm hoping that the New Year will be as blessed as its predecessor, and to help it along I've made a little list of goals for 2018:

  • Write and polish at least three new picture books.
  • Revise the middle grade fantasy novel I wrote during NaNoWriMo.
  • Read at least 200 books, including at least 50 novels.
  • Blog twice a month.
  • Grow my newsletter.
  • Sell another manuscript.
  • Write more poetry.
  • Spend more time in my art journal.
  • Visit some place new this summer.
  • Volunteer more.
  • Read through the whole Bible.

I think that's a good, attainable mix. And with this blog post, it's off to a good start!

What about you? What are some of your goals for 2018?
