January Goals

It's a new year! I started my morning by spilling coffee on my work shirt and pants, but it's better now. I'm didn't get as much accomplished as I did last year, but I plan on working harder this year. I've changed my schedule between my two jobs so I can have one day a week devoted to writing/reading/life. I'm hoping it will help out! :)

It's time for an update in my monthly goals. I have yearly goals, but I also have monthly goals to help with my accountability.

Here are my goals from December:
* Finish rereading the Harry Potter series

* Create writing/personal goals for 2016

* Celebrate Christmas with my family and friends

I didn't quite finish all of my goals, but I had a nice and relaxing month! :) Here's the list of books that I read last month (the purple ones are rereads).

The War that Saved My Life by Kimberley Brubaker Bradley
Chasing Vermeer (Chasing Vermeer, #1) by Blue Balliett
Belly Up by Stuart Gibbs
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

If you are looking for a great upper middle grade book, I highly recommend "Belly Up"! It was hilarious!! One of the girls I work with at the school loaned me her copy. It's about a murdered hippo and has a great, faced paced story! I absolutely loved reading it. I couldn't put the book down.

Goals for January:
* Write to 25,000 words on "Charlotte", my new WIP
I'm not really saying much about the plot of this new book yet! I'm not so sure how it will go, but I've got 3,330 words so far.

* Find critique partners

Small goals, but I'm taking small steps to start off my new year! How did your goals from last month go and what are your new goals? :)


  1. Your new WIP sounds exciting! I wish you all the words this January :)

  3. January is that time of the year, when you can look back at the previous year and take a sigh of relief and be glad that it is over. Looking forward to the new year, plan it out and wish everyone good luck
