    JanNoWriMo 2019 - Hope Smiles

    "Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, 'It will be happier.'"
    - Alfred Lord Tennyson

    Happy 2019! Happy January! And welcome to our first monthly goals thread of the New Year!

    For those new to the thread, many of us participate in the annual NaNoWriMo festivities as well as the twice-yearly Camp NaNo - but that's not a prerequisite to join in. All are welcome to state their goals for the month: writing goals, reading goals, personal goals of all kinds. The writer's road can be a lonely one, but we're here to encourage, commiserate and cheer.

    As always, I'll start us off. My goals are relatively modest this month, and focused largely on writing, which has fallen by the wayside after a stressful final quarter of 2018. I'm trying a couple of different methods to kick-start my engine, so to speak, beginning with setting a daily writing goal instead of a monthly one.

    [ ] Write 100 words a day
    [ ] Week One
    [ ] Week Two
    [ ] Week Three
    [ ] Week Four
    [ ] Week Five
    [ ] Complete Margaret Atwood's Masterclass on writing
    [ ] Read three books
    [ ] Read one short story a week (part of AW's Short Story Reading Challenge)
    [ ] Get 30 minutes of exercise every day
    [ ] Week One
    [ ] Week Two
    [ ] Week Three
    [ ] Week Four
    [ ] Week Five
    [ ] Decide what to do with the first four novels of my series (depending on what happens with agent submissions from last month)
    [ ] Crowbar final royalty payment for 2018 from my deadbeat publisher

    What's on your agenda for the first 31 days of 2019?
