2023 Goals

I’ve not written one of these new year posts in a while. Covid canceled a lot of things, including this blog.

I have completed some previous goals, which I never mentioned before, so I’ll list some of them here:

  1. I finally managed to read 40 books in a year, last year, after that being my yearly goal for some time. (i won’t reach it this year)
  2. I believe I can say i’ve reached ‘intermediate’ level Spanish, at least as far as reading goes.
  3. I have journaled (with a pen and paper) consistently (nearly daily, only forgetting here and there) for 2 years now. This is a habit I’ve been trying and failing to make for over a decade.

And here are some NEW goals for 2023:

  1. Blog 3 times a week. I let this blog die recently, time to revive it, and also revive the idea of writing out any old thought that enters my head. because I’m always glad when I do, no matter how pointless it seems in the moment.
  2. Read three REAL books in Spanish. Only books I’d also want to read were they written in English!
  3. Write 60 poems. I want to reach 100 total poems so I can publish a collection. I expect with 100 poems to choose from, I should be almost guaranteed to have 40-50 ones that are okay to good. I have 40 total now, so I need + 60
  4. Sent 36 stories/poems to magazines. That is, 36 total submissions (its normal to send many poems per submission, but each ‘send’ only counts as 1). That is 3 per month.
  5. finish the current ‘long thing’ project I’m working on

There are some goals! Just writing them down always helps me a bit.

What are yours?
