November Goals

I love making goals. They give me something to shoot for, something to work towards. If not, I’d probably never finish anything that I started – not that that ever happens even when I do make goals. 😉

So, today I’m going to be sharing my goals for November with you guys!

Writing

Flesh-out my novel some more. I found an excellent guide here that I think will be really helpful!

Write at least five or six days per week. I know that with school and just life in general it won’t be possible to write everyday, although I’d like to, so five or six days it is. 😉

Write out ten things per character that the reader will never know. I’ve read that if you do this, these things will be evident in what the character does, and helps make the character more original. I’m eager to see if this works! 😀

Write some short stories as ‘training writing’ when I don’t know what to do. ‘Training writing’ is when I write and experiment with different writing tips that I’ve come across, notice the points that are the hardest for me to write, and practice making dialogue flow, as a few examples.

General

Read the Bible as much as possible.

Remember to bring my camera with me to take pictures when I go outside. Once I was at this really lovely garden, the morning after it had rained, and there were these pretty droplets on all the flowers and I found this pale pink moss-y stuff on top of a rock that would have looked really good in a photo but I didn’t have my camera and just UGH WHY. *stops ranting*

Take pictures of the sunset as much as possible. It’s so beautiful, each one is a little different and unique! ❤

Do some more drawing with gel pens. I’m doing a drawing that is all concentric circles and flowers that I think will turn out well, but it does take a bit of time. I was inspired by Lisa Congdon’s artwork, which you can see here if you’re interested. 🙂

Do some push-ups and sit-ups to gain a little strength. 💪🏻 😉

Reading

Finish reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling.

Read The Lord of the Rings – Part One: The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkein.

Read Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Read East by Edith Pattou.

  1. Hold on for a second. You’re telling me that you’ve never read Lord of the Rings? YOU HAVE BEEN DEPRIVED. 😉

  2. Hey, Jordan! I wanted to let you know, my blog is going private. I have gotten some suspicious followers, and I was scared to post that I was going private, in case the followers suspected anything.
