Happy New Year!! Today is the last day of 2019 and I can’t believe it. In a way, it’s sad, but it’s also very exciting! I look at my current journal, flip through the empty pages and wonder what kind of words will fill them.
Alrighty…. enough reminiscing! (Is it reminiscing if you’re looking ahead? *shrugs*) Let’s get on with this!
Books To Read
–The Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
-The rest of The Mysterious Benedict Society series by Trenton Lee Stewart
–Holes by Louis Sachar
–Burning Rose by Hope Ann
–Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis
And I know I could go on for a looong time, so we’ll stop there. My goal is to read 50 books by the end of the year!
To Accomplish In My Writing
-Flesh out my second story (that is nameless at this point) and finish the first draft (aiming for 40,000 words)
-Write two flash fiction stories
-Begin a new, longer story
That’s all I’ve got so far. The flash fiction is new to me, so I’m a little nervous to attempt it. But I think once I’ve done it multiple times I’ll really enjoy it.
Things I’m Looking Forward To
-Turning sixteen! I feel so old now. I’ve always read about sixteen-year-olds in books, and they were… old. 😜 But it’s exciting.
-Driving!! With the age of sixteen comes the long awaited license to drive!
It’s going to be a fun year! 2020. Sounds like something important should happen! I guess we’ll see where this year takes us. I hope you all have a very joyful and productive year!
