I came across an Instagram account not long ago, called wordbound. I’m a little late on the train, I realise, but it’s better late than never, right? I have a lot of catching up to do, to be on track. So here goes nothing.
WEEK 1: Welcome to #wordbound! This is our very first prompt of the year, and it's due by next Wednesday, Jan 11. I wanted to start simple – to ease people in, think about our writing goals, and let everyone decide on their own what being #wordbound will mean for their own life. You can answer this prompt on your blog, in a video, on twitter, etc! I'm so excited for this new project and I can't wait to read what everyone else writes each week. 🙂
2017 writing goals and I’m already three months behind. Oh well. At least they haven’t been idle months, and that has to count for something.
So, here is my list of goals for 2017:
- I have been outlining, world-building and plotting a story. I want to write that story, get through the first draft.
- I have four stories ready, and I want to finish one round of edits on all of them. On “Descent”, “Fool’s Errand”, “Tarnished Gold”, and “The Duchess”.
- Hopefully, I can go on round 2 of edits on each story, if I am productive enough, if I use the ‘butt to chair’ technique.
I know it doesn’t make for an impressive list of writing goals, but I’m currently struggling to finish university. If I manage to fulfill 2/3 of the goals, I’ll be more than happy and satisfied.
