Goals for December + Random Updates

December is one of my favorite months of the year–it usually is snowing outside (though I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing snow this winter yet and my hopes are high that I’ll wake up some day this month to a white ground) and they joy is amazing with Christmas coming up. So, today I want to talk about my goals for December–it is the last month to complete your bucket list and if you don’t–hey, that’s not a problem, just add it on your next years bucket list. So, now I’ll list my final goals for this year.

  1. Write and/or plan a new book. As a lot of you may know I have been seeking inspiration for nearly a year now. Every sense I finished a book last year and that sucks and doesn’t even make sense I have opened at least 300 documents (I do like to exaggerate but I am serious), writing a page or two before shutting my computer and sighing in frustration. So now I want to brainstorm and setle for one idea and outline that one so I can actually accomplish something. If anyone has any tips  and/or tricks how to fix this (problem), please let me know!
  2. Spread joy on social media. A lot of people have lately been suffering from diseases, depression…, so I want to spread joy and either help them forget about the sickness and/or get rid of the depression.
  3. Study more. Last school you I did fine (my average was a B+) but this school year I haven’t been doing too well, due to distractions and the annoyance of not writing. I even found myself near and F in math so I want to boosts those grades up to an A or B.
  4. Last but not least, read a lot. I have been in a reading slump for about a month now (last month I only read two books!) but I am slowly but surely making my way out of it–with reading contemporary YA. I think that reading contemporary (YA) is a great way to get our of a reading slump – especially when you have depression because they are usually very relatable, honest… And usually the books end with an happy end, leaving you smiling. Of course I am not saying that this doesn’t work for any other genre’s. I also find myself smiling when finishing fantasy or whatever. Also, this is one of my personal tips, so this may or may not work for you.

So those were my goals for this month. Now, some random updates:

  • I finished Snow like Ashes last month (November). I really liked the plot and characters, but sometimes it felt a little bit slow. Let me know if you want me to do a review for it. My overall rating was 3 stars.
  • I got some random ideas (yay) and I think it might be “The Idea” so I am pumped for that.

That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed this (slightly cheesey, I know, this isn’t what I usually talk about) post! Happy writing!
