Every year, I try to choose one song to be my theme song. Here is mine for 2018:

I have quite a few different goals for 2018, but for the sake of time and consistency, I want to stick to my creative endeavors.
1.) Maintain My Website/Blog
It’s going to be messy at first, and for all I know it’ll stay messy. I want to keep up with it, but I don’t want to freak myself out by setting up standards. My anxiety tricks me into thinking it’s impossible, so I want to take away any advantage it may have over my writing career. Be prepared for run on sentences, fragmented sentences, uncomfortable similes, and general ranting.
2.) Write Every Day
Would it make more sense to give a word-count goal or say how many books/short stories/poems I wish to publish in a month? Probably. Given my struggles the last few years to get anything going, simply writing every day will be the best starting point.
3.) Update Social Media Profiles & Check Them Daily
There is so much potential I’m missing out on, and I need to keep up with the action. Again, don’t expect super world-class posts. They may just be pictures of my cat.
4.) Update All Logos and Images
It’s a silly, easy goal. My pictures are old. I’m no longer a blonde. And I have no logo to brand me. I may also need to update my author name… I don’t know.
5.) Write and publish Fan Fiction
I love reading fan fiction, but I get super embarrassed when I start writing it. Ridiculous!! I just need to do it!!!
