Gearing up for 2014! Goal #1

It's that time of year again! Time for friends, family and WAY too much good food. It's the time where I always look forward, and right now the one thing on my mind is:

Right now is usually about the time I start thinking about what my goals are for the new year. I hardly ever set actual resolutions. They're more like "Things I aspire to do". It gives me a little more wiggle room to change them up if things call for it. After all, a year is actually a pretty long time. You never know what could happen!

Anyway I've figured out my first goal for 2014. Get back into journal writing, and I mean seriously. It used to be that I'd write at least three times a week, if not every day. I can go back right now and read all the things that happened to me in 2002, my last year of high school. Or take a trip down memory lane back to 1998 when I first stepped foot as a Freshman onto campus. I miss that. I miss having a record. Lord knows I don't have the best memory ;).

So my first goal of 2014 is:
Create a yearly journal, and write in it at least 3 times a week.

I'm going to do it on here. I type so much faster than I write, and quite honestly get less frustrated :). There's nothing worse than writing a sentence and then having my grammatically obsessed mind realize I missed a letter. DOH. So yes. To help me achieve this goal, I bought a spiffy book!

Click the picture to go to the book on Amazon!

It has ideas, prompts, quotes, and a whole bunch of other awesome stuff to help you get started off on a writing tangent every day. Maybe I won't make it all 365 days, but I sure aim to try!

I thought it'd be fun to invite some of the rest of you out there to join me! Blogger blogs (like this one) are free, and the book only costs $2.99 on Kindle. I'm starting officially on January 1st, so if you're in let me know! We can link up, and see what question we each answer every day. Trust me, journal writing is tons more fun when you have other people to comment and share with :).

So goal #1 down! Let's see what other ones I come up with before January starts.


  1. Sounds like a fun goal. I think 3 times a week is tempting fate but definitely worth a try :)

    1. Does this mean you're joining me? LOL. I already blog five times a week for my book blog so I'm not too worried. Excited! But not worried.

  2. I don't know if I can do 3 times a week... But I am in. I already started, because I was afraid if I waited til the new year I would totally forget.

    1. YAY! Are you writing a blog, or in a paper journal?
