Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
I’m a big fan of setting goals.
I like lists and organisation and knowing where I’m going. So this is going to be a mix of different goals, writing and blogging and reading.
1) Read 100 books.
Who needs school when you’ve got books? I’ve read more than 150 books this year, so hopefully I can get to 100 next year.
2) Read 20 books by Australian authors.
That includes New Zealand authors, by the way. Like we’ve kind of adopted Rachael Craw.
We’ve even got our own army going on.
3) Read at least 10 books of my own choosing.
Because I don’t want blogging to become a chore, and reading books that I choose will be a good way to deal with this.
4) Revise and start querying my YA contemporary novel, The Daisy List
Yeah, so this is terrifying. HOWEVER, since I am in England right now (not the Emily writing this blog post…she’s still in good old Oz) I’m hoping I can soak in all the Englishness and get The Daisy List ready. Because, you know, it’s set in England.
5) Participate in NaNoWriMo
I’ve done it for three years in a row now and I WILL NOT BREAK MY STREAK.
6) Stop writing new drafts and start revising the old ones, goddammit
Except I have a feeling this may be the result:
Still. I am determined.
7) Stick to five blog posts a week
It may be more sometimes, it may be less sometimes (and you will know, because I’ll be panicking about school on Twitter, probably). But hopefully five will turn out to be a good number.
8) Look at some options for going self-hosted.
BECAUSE I REALLY WANT TO DO IT. But it won’t be until the end of 2015, maybe when my HSC is over…
9) Visit more people’s blogs.
I feel so bad sometimes, because the same names pop up in the comments and I never visit your blogs, and YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. You’re awesome. I will try harder. Love you guys 5ever.
10) At least TRY and keep my review files updated.
*SOBS* At least I’m trying, Regina, gosh!
But…yeah, it probably won’t happen. I don’t even get around to posting my reviews on Goodreads, let alone updating all the reviews on my blog. *guilty face* Maybe 2015 will be a better year?
