Two blog posts in a week? Yep! As I said in yesterday’s blog, you can expect to see some extra blogs for various holidays in addition to the regular weekly post. Yesterday was the holiday, today marks the first post of many Tuesday postings.

I’ve gotten this renewed spirit from a weeklong workshop I took. It started the day after Christmas and met daily through New Year’s Day. We examined our writing goals and other goals we desired to meet in 2024. Blogging more regularly is one of those goals for me, so I can connect with you all more.

One of the biggest things we talked about was setting goals and how we plan to reach those goals on a day by day, week by week, month by month schedule. When planning it all out, I thought it seemed like a lot. How would I fit it all in? Then I executed my first day’s To Do List. Just about everything on my calendar took anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to complete. I ended the day reviewing today’s schedule and making tweaks for what didn’t get done yesterday to carry it over to today or sometime later this week when it fits. I have a reading list for this year, but I’m also open to suggestions. I’m also planning on learning something new this year outside of writing. All of this is scheduled out all the way to December 31, 2024. The hope is that, yes, all of this will get done by December 31, 2024 if not sooner.

What are some things you plan on learning this year? Also, drop your reading recommendations in the comments so we can all learn something new!
