Wait a second, it was 2016 yesterday.
A lot happened in 2016. I moved twice, once from Europe to South Carolina and then again from South Carolina to Washington. I started high school. Matthias came home. I wrote the first draft of my novel. It was a pretty epic year, full of ups and downs and a ton of blessings. And guess what? There’s a new year ahead of us to do some crazy awesome stuff! I know a lot of us have some goals for the next year, so I thought I’d share five of my writing and reading related goals…
This year, I want to be more diligent about studying the Bible. One of the resources I plan on using is She Read Truth. I used their plan to study the Bible during the Advent season, and I plan on using their Esther and Timothy studies in January.
I’ve always wanted to do this, but I’ve always had some excuse. This is the year, guys. *silently screams at self for insanity*
I would love to blog once a week in 2017! I think I can make this work… I think.
*hides the fact that I’m not even done with the second one* Right now, I’m strengthening the plot and developing my characters even more. And then there’s the whole I-wrote-the-first-draft-in-a-notebook-so-I’m-turning-it-into-a-Word-doc fiasco… I’d love for this to be ready for beta readers by the summer, way far away, I know.
I can’t wait to see what God has planned for us in this new year, can’t you?
