As I sit here on the 31st December 2011, I ponder my goals for 2012. I think that this is a perfectly normal thing for any human to do on the last day of the year. Reflection and planning.
Inspired by my dear friend, Kim Koning, I created myself a writing vision board for the year ahead, to help keep me focused. Kim uses hers as a desktop background on her computer, and I’m thinking that’s a pretty good move.
So here it is:
My ‘Writing Vision Board’ for 2012 consists of the following three goals.
- New Novel: Tijuana Nights (New thriller)
- Personal Goal: Project 2012 – First Draft to Submission
- Project Completion: Talent Revolution (Final Instalment of UF Trilogy)
Now is a good time to sort out what you would like to achieve in the year to come. I know what I want to achieve. I don’t know if it will happen, but at least I know I have the goals and plans set in place to assist me on my journey.
Besides, little Bumpkin will also take priority over these goals. But regardless of what happens, these goals will eventually happen – they just may take a little longer than anticipated.
This is not the busiest writing year I have ever planned, but it will certainly be a chaotic one with a new baby in tow. I’m really looking forward to the challenge.
Bring it on. It’s going to be a hell of an adventure.

WooHoo! Loving your Vision Board Chick!
Bring on 2012!!!
Happy New Year 2012!!
Thank you for being such an inspiring friend and writing buddy 🙂 If it wasn’t for you, I probably wouldn’t have grabbed my focus with both hands to get this together – OR the plan for the new book 🙂 So thank you!
It’s so pretty! And I love the quote. 🙂
Thank you! Yes, I love that quote as well. I came across it the other day, and felt rather inspired by it. Thought I would use it 🙂
I love your background inspiration collage. How did you do that? It looks great 🙂
I think perhaps I should probably send you an email trying to explain it… I ended up having a very long conversation with a mutual friend this morning on how to do one for her as well!
Would love that, thanks!
