Writing Goals for 2016!

writing goals for 2016.jpg

writing things i tried did this year:

  1. I made a writing blog! So far I’ve only posted poetry but once I’ve finished editing a few short-stories, I’ll probably be sharing those too. (Oh and I share poetry on ello as well!)
  2. Some of my poetry was published by literary magazines (ie. Scrittura). 
  3. I tried to do NaNoWriMo..and only managed to write 18K words.. 

I feel like I haven’t accomplished that much this year but that kind of makes sense because 10th grade has been busy and stressful and I have no idea what I’m doing most of the time.

I know I’m going to be getting busier next year…but I may as well set a few goals for myself, the most important one being to finish everything I start. I know that sounds pretty easy.. but the truth is that I haven’t finished any of my novels yet.

  1. Finish the first draft of Vivid. 
  2. Start writing & posting (more) chapters of Deadline on wattpad.
  3. Maybe draft another novel for NaNoWriMo


If I do try writing another novel, here are the retellings I will be choosing from:

  • Retelling based on the Ramayana (a Hindu epic I was absolutely obsessed with as a child). It would be from the perspective of Sita and I’m probably going to mess experiment with the storyline.
  •  Lesbian sleeping beauty retelling. I doubt nobody has written this before but I think I could find ways to make it more interesting/original (maybe make it more modern?)
  • Gender-bender retelling of Little Mermaid or Cinderella. I’ve actually never read one of these but I think it would be fun to write.

So how has your year been? Do you have any (writing) goals?
