Short Writing Blog Wrap Up of 2014 and Goals for 2015

I want to make 2014’s writing wrap up short and sweet. So let’s jump into it.

 

“1: This year, I want to try to write in my book every day.”

 

I didn’t write in my book every day, but I wrote every day during two NaNos this year.

“2: I want to read more.”

 

YES! I read so much more! I actually made it a goal to read at least one book a month. SO YES!! (I usually don’t read much).

 

“3: I want to practice writing scenes without periods.”

I work on that… then I stopped. BUT TECHNICALLY YES.

 

“4: I want to write dialogue with a voice.”

 

I THINK MY VOICE HAS IMPROVED TREMENDOUSLY.

 

“5: I never want to backpedal in my writing.”

 

I’ve cleaned this up most particularly in my book I’m writing currently.

 

“6: I want to critique more.”

 

I think I critiqued, but I feel like I critiqued less. .. Well, actually. I critiqued and edited Clay’s book.

 

“7: I want to have a daily word.”

 

No, but during April and November I had a word every day for both NaNoWriMos.

 

“8: I want to keep a journal.”

I wrote in my journal every day for the past year, so check.

 

“9: I want to learn more idioms.”

 

Nope. I have a whole list of them, but it’s never been looked at.

 

“10: Finally, I want to blog more.”

 

Without a doubt, I’ve blogged more. My goal for the year was to have 24 and I ended with 30. 😀
