It’s the final day of 2011. Celebrating New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays because it’s a time to reflect on the past and make new goals for the future.
So 2011 was an odd year. I sprained my finger, moved to an apartment, published two poems, learned to make different breads, read more books, wrote a lot, wrote letters, and so much more. Not in that order, of course.
But as for the future? Remember my goals poster: https://slawriter89.wordpress.com/2011/07/28/writing-goals/
I fulfilled my goal to publish at least one poem, and I’ve been writing every day, reading widely (delved into Southern and Modern fiction), gathering ideas in my notebooks, attending readings (at Prout Chapel every Thursday during the semester, and developing an Internet presence.
More tomorrow on my goals for 2012. What goals do you have for the upcoming year?

I wish I found time to write every day. Maybe THAT will be one of my goals this year. I hate saying New Years Resolution but I’ll probably end up vlogging about that soon…haha
I can’t wait to watch it, Travis! I started writing every day as a New Year’s Resolution for 2011. I failed six days in January, never consecutive. But once I got in the habit of writing every day, I couldn’t go to sleep if I didn’t write something. I prefer to write in big chunks of time, but with my schedule it isn’t possible. So I take ten or twenty minutes here and there and write something.
Good luck with your goals for the New Year! 🙂
