Last year I mentioned that I wasn’t really into New Year’s resolutions, but I still gave myself three little goals to achieve, and today, I’m going to review it and see what happened.
The first one was to focus on writing. Then I elaborated: And I sincerely hope that in the end of 2013, I am left with at least one polished and completed novel, ready to be published.
That didn’t come true. Well except that instead of ending up with a novel, I ended up with a short script, which I am now writing into a novella.
That isn’t disappointing or surprising though, because I know that this year was a year full of school work, being my last year in secondary school.
And that’s how my second resolution had been to work hard at school, focus on my studies.
Which I hopefully did? I don’t know I am still waiting for the results!
Then the third and final goal I had set myself was to find where I stand. I quote: I want to finally find my whole identity. I want to know – no, to be sure of – where I’m going. Who am I? What’s my mission?
Did I succeed this one? I don’t know. Maybe. Or maybe I still have yet to learn about myself. In any case, during the year there were a lot of confusion and ups and downs about my identity and plans for the future. Fortunately, today, I know exactly where I am going and I know myself better than a year ago.
I know what I have to do
(just throwing in a random recent photo so as to keep this post more interesting hehe)
This year, I’m reluctant to make resolutions, because I’m unsure of where I will be in a few months or who I will become. Which university will I end up in? Will I even be able to enter one? Where will I go? What will happen?
But one thing I know is that in terms of the creative process I am working on two writing projects at the same time, sometimes leaving one and concentrating more on the other and vice versa, and I intend to finish at least one of them this year. One is my novella I’ve talking about and the other is my more serious maybe-to-be-published-as-a-first-novel one.
I know that my time as a published writer is coming soon, though I don’t know if I should be counting in terms of months or years, but in any case, I have to get ready.
The year 2014 proves to be a rather scary one for me but… well I have to keep my head up. And move forward.
And in terms of my vlogging journey, I will try to make at least one video a week! Here’s my last one for 2013 by the way:
In all, my goal is to never stop being creative!
I wish you all a very Happy New Year 2014 and I’ll write to you once we all get to the other side! (next year, I meant, next year, 2014…)
