1 Write reviews after I finish the book not weeks laterI have a terrible habit of reading books, rating them, scheduling the date the review will be posted, and then just not writing the review until I HAVE to. No more of this!
2 Read more sequels and series finalesI actually have a discussion post about this coming up. I am terrible about keeping up with series, sequels, etc. I would really like to finish or continue some of the series I loved in 2013.
3 Get to 80% on GoodreadsI decided to host the Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge to reach that elusive 80% and I would love to get there in 2014.
4 Interact more with my followers via Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads & CommentsI just want to be more active on social media in general. I feel like right now I read a lot of other people's comments and statuses without contributing. I'm going to make sure to put myself out there and chime in more often.
5 Comment on other blogs moreI try and do this already but I want to do better! I have that habit of reading but not commenting. I am going to make a concerted effort to comment on every post I visit.
6 Try and not request so many digital review copiesI think doing this will help me get to 80% a lot faster!
7 Make time for books that I've wanted to read but have pushed aside for new releasesI get bogged down in review books and there are so many books that came out in 2012 and 2013 that I missed. I would love to be able to take time and read what I really want to rather then just review books.
8 Finish my manuscript, edit and queryI participated in NaNo Warm Up in October (because NaNoWriMo is a bit much). By December I only had a few scenes left to write. I would love in 2014 to get my MS edited to the point that it is ready to agent and query.
|This is how things are probably going to go though. I'm prepared for this.|
Okay so I only have 8 goals, but hopefully I can reach them all in 2014!
