I’m not usually good with resolutions. I struggle with the “resolute” part of them. I’m much better with “vague notions that aren’t measurable but sound like good things to shoot for”, but that isn’t a thing. So here go the resolutions for 2013.
Who knows? Maybe I’ll surprise myself and actually stick with them.
- Blog consistently. I plan to stick with my schedule of at least one post per weekday. In this way, I’ll keep honing my writing voice through sheer volume of words written.
- More book reviews. I started this blog with a goal of writing a book review a week. That didn’t last long. It was an ambitious goal and probably not all that realistic. I think I’ll consider this resolution fulfilled if I can do two reviews per month.
- More flash fiction challenges. I really enjoy writing flash fiction and would like to encourage the practice in my writing friends. Taking a page from Julia’s Place, I would like to consistently offer a challenge along a specified time frame, so people know when to expect a prompt.
- More author interviews. I love books, and I am trying to become an author. I have a feeling that the people who read my blog are fond of books as well and wouldn’t mind a good interview with the authors of those books. This will also help my blog be a source for people to discover books and authors that they may have been unfamiliar with before. Everyone wins.
I think I’ll cut it off there. I have a few more vague notions, but it would be best to leave them for now. Do you have suggestions to help me in my resolutions? Do you think I am missing any resolutions for my blog? I’d love to hear it! Please leave me a comment below.
