  1. Read 52+ books.
  2. Attend 3-5 readings.
  3. Beta read for at least two new people.
  4. Read at least one new book on the craft of writing.
  5. Freewrite and do more exercises when not actively novel writing.

    1. *going intensifies* Haha, thanks Steph!

  1. Great goals for 2015! It looks like you will be doing a lot of reading and writing. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes! And I look forward to reading The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow specifically πŸ™‚

  2. You know we’ll call you on these next January Julie πŸ™‚ New experiences eh? How about all-in wrestling, sky diving. This year I’ll be taking a deeper look at myth and legend.

    1. Hahaha, GOOD! Keep me accountable! I’m not sure what those new experiences will entail yet (beyond learning more about tarot cards, which have intrigued me ever since I researched them in passing for a book) but probably not skydiving ;). Maybe a class, maybe travel. Maybe some on-the-scene/shadowing research for things I want to write about.

      Ooh, myth and legend! I’ll have to keep an eye out for your posts. I love the old stories.

  3. Great list of Goals, Julie. Good luck with all of them.

    1. Thank you, Rochelle! πŸ™‚

  4. Good goals – thanks for sharing. I especially like #3 – beta-reading is a great thing to do for another writer (and have done for you) so to consciously make time for it is admirable, especially since it can be time-consuming. I should do more of that two.

    One question: are these goals in some kind of order, e.g. priority? Or just as you thought of them?

    1. Nope! Not ranked or anything. Since most of them are long term, time consuming or open ended, I figure it’s easier to just take things as I get to them.

What’s the word?
