That's my plans for 2021. I choose Challenge as my word for this year because I want to challenge myself with everything I do. I've been just kind of barely doing enough to get by right now so I want to push myself. So crazy goals. This is honestly probably more than I can do in the year but I'm going to try my hardest. I'm excited to get started.
That is a great list of goals. Even if you were to 'only' reach your realistic goal, it would be an amazing achievement if you ask me!
As for Chronicles of Amana, do you have everything outlined already? Do you have a summary? I'm curious.
I have a general outline for the series. And I have the first 2 books fully outlined. I mean really I have all of them outlined to a degree but since I'm making some major changes to the overall series I'm going to have to reoutline the later books before I start them. I do have a summary. I'll have to see if I can dig it up to post here later.
Oh I like the whole Aim - Dream - Stretch. Very nice. Good luck!
Thanks. I was just going to put the regular and the insane one but then I was like..maybe I should add the middle one just in case this year is as crazy as last year and I can't manage that 1million word thing.
