The Year of Getting Organized

Perhaps others wait until the new year to talk about the upcoming year, but I’m going to talk it now so I pass the starting line at a run come January. Not that I’m exactly standing still right now.

2018: The Year of Becoming Better Organized.

Deciding to record my monthly goals has helped me tremendously in December and I want to continue with that approach in 2018. I find monthly goals far more realistic and attainable. An entire year is notoriously difficult to predict and by autumn you’re chucking one goal after another that no longer fits your circumstances.

* Note that I didn’t wait until January to try out monthly goals. I haven’t got time for that. Either I’m serious about how I approach my writing or I’m not. Procrastination is for changing the drapes (and a mindset I’m determined to shed). Too, Christmas was a day to slack (I got up extra early to fit in 2 hours of editing), not a month to take off. Either I’m a writer seeking to publish or I’m not.

Keeping in mind that my annual goals serve as a guide for my monthly ones, here we go…

• Submit short stories. For better or worse it’s time to take that next step (and quit procrastinating). This also serves to keep my hand in drafting without producing countless novels.
