Spring Writing and Reading Goals

This is not the first time I have set goals for a quarter. If you’ve been following my blogs for the past year, you know that I have not been the best at actually achieving the goals I set. I want that to change, so I’m changing up how I’m going about this.

What I’m Doing Differently

  1. Make less specific goals in case my plans change
  2. Posting goals on social media for extra accountability
  3. Allowing for flexibility in case life becomes too chaotic
  4. Setting up a reward system
  5. Posting easy to follow updates on social media

My Goals

  1. Blog once a week
  2. Read 10/30 books on my owned TBR list
  3. Write three short stories
  4. Submit a short story to a magazine
  5. Get 1,000 followers on Instagram
  6. Get 1,000 followers on Tik Tok
  7. Get 1,000 followers on Twitter
  8. Host two author interviews for podcast
  9. Outline fantasy novel
  10. Get at least 50% through a Masterclass
  11. Learn to draw people so I can make fanart
  12. Post 3x a week on bookstagram
  13. Try vss365 on twitter twice a week
  14. Try “morning pages” every day for a week
  15. Outline the fantasy novel using two different methods
  16. Get podcast onto Apple Podcast and Goodpods
  17. Get 30 subscribers onto my email list
  18. Read at least five of my ARCS
  19. Finish a masterclass
  20. work out 3x a week to help with creativity

There are all my goals! There’s a lot (enough that I may not get to them all) so I’m going to have different awards for each milestone I meet. I’m going to make three milestones for every five goals I complete. For the first five, the reward will be a new book (or notebook). For the next five, the reward will be an art print or poster off Redbubble or Etsy. For the next five (15/20), I’m going to reward myself with some makeup. And, if I manage to make all of my goals, I’m going to reward myself with a bookish sweatshirt!
