What are your reading and writing goals for this year?


Reading — Just finding time to read more books would be enough for me.

Writing — Finish (latest) rewrite of my current WIP. Query. While querying, work on the next project. Also, I'd like to write a few short stories this year.


I don't know! Not a goal-oriented person, but I would like to finish my current project and draft some new words in a new surrounding. In the meantime, I'm going to read to my heart's content.


Reading goal — 3 books per month. I aimed for 40 last year and fell a few short, so I thought 36 might be a good compromise, in terms of recognizing my constraints but also pushing myself a bit.

Writing goal — PUT IN THE WORK. That's it. I know I can't control the outcomes of my writing, I can only put in the effort, enjoy the effort, and value the effort as its own success. So that's what I'm going to try to do.

(And yeah, more short stories, like Ingrid said, haha.)


My reading goals are to finish at least two audio books a month, because audio books are what's feasible with my crazy schedule. And to read one physical book per month.

My write goal, for now, is to sit down and write at least one day a week. Hopefully that number will get bigger as the year goes on.


And one more reading goal for me is to revisit some of the classics that I read loooong ago or never read in the first place. I'm starting with Stephen Hawking's A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME.

What are your goals this year?
