Let’s Talk 2020 Goals

Wow, it’s amazing how fast the holidays end, and another year begins. For me, New Year’s Eve is always magical, like stepping through a time portal into the future. Well, not literally. Hehehe… I’m always a little sad when the season concludes, wanting to prolong enjoyable times with family and friends. But as always, time progresses, hopefully to a happier, healthier, and more successful year.

So, 2020 is here, and again, no new year’s resolutions for me. Rather than create new goals every year, I prefer continuous goals such as the sustainable lifestyle of health and fitness, a daily, monthly, and yearly effort.

I couldn’t succeed in any other endeavor without my health, especially writing, where creativity depends on a strong mind and body. Okay, I might add a few goals throughout the year.

My writing goals are a continuous effort to complete my current work in progress, Twilight Ends, a novel, and add several short stories to my repertoire. Twilight Ends has been a challenge, but  I love a challenge with all its frustrating hair-pulling moments.

2019 Goodreads Challenge

I’ve reached and surpassed my 2019 Goodreads reading goal, which inspired me to increase the number of books to read in 2020 from thirty to fifty, thus more book reviews to come.
