EDIT: Apparently, this starts Oct 7. I got a little post happy and jumped the gun.
I’ve been thinking hard about this round. Last year, I did everything in my power to be awesomely productive and finish the year on a high. I even “threatened” myself with a Batsu Game. (Which would have been very embarrassing, but fun in a weird way…) For a bit, I considered doing this again. But, right now, I think this would be a bad idea.
I’ve somehow entered a fear period in my writing career. Pushing hard could lead me down bad roads.
So, instead, I’m going to use this round to get myself out of that fear zone! I might not push myself as hard as usual, but I am going to get myself to move forward and away from being like this. That way, come 2014, I can continue to work on making myself the writer I want to be.
I’ve divided the months into themes. I thought that kind of focus might help me out. All the goals in a month might not fit the theme, but the important ones will.
