My goals for 2019

Hey everyone! 2018 was a good year overall and I hope that 2019 is better. So, I am putting down some goals, some resolutions of the sort for 2019 that I can come back to and see at the end of the year to see how much I actually progressed.

MY GOALS:

A. READING GOALS

1. Read 50 Books

To me, 50 books sound realistic so I wish to stick to this and try and read more if possible. I read 40 in 2018, so adding 10 seems plausible…

2. Read the Books on my shelves

I buy too much and am not able to read it all. It is pretty sad and so, here I have decided to attempt to read all the unread books on my bookshelf in 2019. I know this is kind of impossible since I will keep buying, so to compensate for it, I will read at least 1 or 2 old books every month.

So, I made a list!

  • January – To Kill a Kingdom
  • February- Six of Crow + The Crooked Kingdom
  • March – One of Us is Lying
  • April – Eleanor & Park
  • May- King’s Cage
  • June- Queen of the Tearling

That’s only 6 months out of 12, but well, let me see if I can keep to this and when I do a mid-year update then I can list out the rest! 🙂

3. Explore more Genres

I have seen that I usually stick to reading what I know I love. So, I plan to at least try to read other genres this year!

So, these are the genres I wish to read more of:

  • 1 Crime
  • 2 Historical Fiction
  • 2 Classics
  • 3 Autobiographies/ Biographies

B. WRITING GOALS 

1. Write one short story per month.

My short stories usually vary from about 1,000 words to 10,000 so writing one per month can be done. Plus, this will be good practise and will overall help me develop as a writer!

2. Write a poem per month.

I personally find writing poems a little hard so this might prove to be difficult but I hope to achieve it! I also hope that some of the poems I write are worthy enough of being posted on this blog.

3. NaNoWriMo 2019

I want to write a complete novel this year and what better way to achieve it than via NaNoWriMo? I just hope that I will be able to do it!

C. BLOGGING GOALS

1. Stick to a posting Schedule

This is really important otherwise everything ends up going down the hill. When I don’t post for quite some time, it makes me feel detached and it makes it harder to come back. So, I hope to not get out of it and post at least twice a week or more if possible!

2. Blog Hop more

There are days when I spend hours going through blogs and then there are some days when I don’t even look at one. I want to balance these out so I can interact with the community properly!

And, that’s a wrap. Hopefully, I will be able to achieve all these goals. Anyways, we’ll take another look at them in the middle of the year and see how well I faired at the end!

What are your goals? Tell me in the comments below. 

Peace out cuties ♥

  1. ooooh good luck, especially with NaNoWriMo! I’ve done it maybe three or four times and only won once 😅 I’m also working on getting back into writing original fiction and diversifying my reading, apparently all five of the books I started 2019 with are fantasy, oops.

    1. Thanks! I tried NaNoWriMo last year but only got to 30,000 words. I’ll try again this year and let’s see where I get to 🙂
      Hahaha, but all the best for the rest of the year!

  2. I’m making a goal to blog hop more too! And like write consistent posts again 😂I use dto ALWAYS be consistent, but I sort of fell apart at the end of 2018, so I want to get back aboard the blogging train again. And also eep, good luck for doing NaNo (I love doing it too!) and writing short stories and poems this year! That sounds most amazing. I also have this wild vague dream of reading all my backlist ARCs but we’ll see.😂The new shiny ones are so hard to resist…

    1. All the best for your goals! Hope you are able to achieve them. And, same. I just started but the first 2-3 months were consistent and then, bam, when life came into play in Nov/Dec, it all fell apart. HAHAHA, same here. The new, shiny books always grab my attention and the old ones remain sitting on my bookshelf, gathering dust. It’s sad really.
