So… The Penultimate 2017 project!!! SO less than a month to see what I can do before New Year… Not long until I begin to finalize the goals I want to achieve in 2018, of which there seems to be a steady supply. Not sure if I will keep the habit swap. Lets see what happens.
So sadly I couldn’t fit nanowrimo in November. However I did complete number 14 which means that is 7 of my 24 goals completed and I have officially succeeded at my New Years resolution for the first time ever!!!
So while the other goals I haven’t quite mastered yet, I have to say I am very proud of what I have achieved next year. I want to do this challenge again next year it was fun and enjoyable.
Now the current in progress goals are well, 8, 10, 17, 22 mainly now. Though I am still going to try the others if I can fit it in.
The 24-7 goals:
1- Write The Diary of Elliot Parker Part 2
2- Do NANOWRIMO
3- Write The Diary of Elliot Parker Part 3? 4- Write the first book of the big project
5- Finish spine tattoo
6- Finish magpie tattoo
7- Finish musical rib tattoo
8- Look for an agent/publisher for the “big” project
9- Learn to drive
10- Learn guitar
11- Finish knitting the cable knit jumper
12- Finish knitting the blankets 13- Improve views on here 14- See a west end show 15- Try and succeed at least three times on the 21 day habit swap
16- Win the lotto jackpot
17- Look for the positives more often
18- Meditate regularly
19- Keep making emotional progress
20- Keep hope and loose more doubt
21- Make posts for here in advanced, consider adding pictures, try to avoid leaving it to the last minute
22- Try to grow my hair long- aim for below the shoulder this year.
23- Become even more open-minded
24- Discover my own special brand of writers magic,
Break- Stop apologizing for myself so often. I do it a lot, it is something that really bothers me, mainly because I apologise for things that are completely not my fault and nothing to do with me. I am sick of apologizing for my own existence.
Make- Eat at least one piece of fruit a day. It is supposed to be healthy right?
Make- Write/plot at least an hour each day even on rest days. I have to start getting stricter on myself.
Make- Create and stick to a writing schedule. I have to start being more organised.
Break- Stop being hard on myself, speak kinder words to myself instead. That pretty much explains itself.
Make- A daily list of 3 positive things that I like about my day. Because sometimes it is easy to forget that there were brief sunshine moments. Make- A daily list of 3 things that I like about myself, physical, non-physical. Because, it can be hard to show yourself some love. Make- A little notebook of positive aspects, a once a day entry of 10 things that are positive. Literally a list of positive aspects about people, places, things; maybe one day I will post it on here.
That’s all for now, it might change or grow but other than that, it’s all feeling good!
