I got to say, I hate the holidays.
I always think I’ll have more time, to write, to read, to do stuff in general and it never fails to backfire. I should know this by now, but I keep forgetting every year.
This time, I feel like it’s taken me particularly long to get back into my old habits. (This blog post is a good example, because I’d planned to write it a week ago!)
But I’m finally back into it. Writing in the mornings. Reading in the evenings. Getting back onto Twitter and in touch with people. I’ve missed it, I really have.
And I’m excited! I have big plans for this year. I want to get at least one (maybe two!) books out there, and I have some first drafts lying around that I can’t wait to get my hands on. And when I’ve done a few rounds on those, and got them off to some beta readers, I’m planning on drafting a new project that I’ve had on the back burner for ages. It’s really exciting, and I can’t wait.
It’s weird. A while ago, I wouldn’t have been so open with my goals and plans. Not because I didn’t want to share, but perhaps because I didn’t think I could do it. I’ve learnt a lot this past year, and one of the things is that I’m capable. Very capable.
That doesn’t mean my plans won’t be delayed, or pushed back. But I can do it, I know I can.
And I can’t wait.
What are your plans for the year? Anything big? Small? I’d love to hear about it!
