2017 Goals

I've been thinking the last few days about what my resolutions/goals for 2017 will be. I usually say something like "write more, lose weight" and those are both things I'd like to do, but so far I... haven't, really. Maybe I need something more concrete. Maybe I need something less concrete. I don't really know, so I guess I just have to keep setting goals for myself and see what sticks.

This year, I think most of my goals can all be boiled down to one thing:

  • Be better, do more.

Which is not to say that I don't have a full list, because I definitely do. But that's, I think, the heart of what I want for 2017. This past year was hard in many, many ways, and many of the things that made it hard are out of my control. But for those things that aren't, I think being better and doing more are the core.

So on that note, my individual goals for the year:

  • Read 30 books.

  • Lose 50 lbs.

  • Move out of my parents' house.

  • Figure out what to do with TRM.

  • Be better at meeting deadlines.

  • Post 100k words on AO3.

  • Finish more writing (in no particular order)

    • expanded Yuletide 2016 fic

    • overdue auction fic

    • FUF #1/WIP Big Bang 2016 fic

    • more FUF fics

    • Interhouse Fest 2016 sequel

    • trans Harrisco fic

    • blasphemous Bible fic

    • Jenzekiel antagonistic daddy kink

    • original writing (which, I haven't decided...)

    • a poetry chapbook


Good luck for all of those goals :) hope you manage to achieve a lot of them :)
Thank you :D
Good luck for your goals! It helps to break them down into smaller chunks, like bi-monthly goals (if monthly is too much for you), or into smaller steps like making a list of things your new place needs to fulfill. Doing one tiny thing a fay to work toward those goals will be less daunting than looking at the whole picture. :D
Thank you! I do break fic writing down into finishing/editing/posting, but it might be a good idea to break it down some more. I will try that!
