Happy 2014 folks! I hope you had a great time celebrating however you chose to celebrate last night. I chose to stay up rather too late at a rather fun party. I'm happy to say I got home without any sort of car crashes.
If you've been reading my blog, you are probably aware that I had challenged myself to write 365 poems in 2013. I feel like I talked about it all too much.
I succeeded. And boy am I proud. I actually went over 365, but I need a final count to know by how many. Just four or five, so maybe 370 for the year. Gah, that's a lot of poems. There are a whole slew of them that are practically worthless, but I feel that there are also a good deal that are good. Maybe none great, but good... I hope. I'll probably keep posting some from this year now and then, I wrote several that I'd like to share in this last week.
So now I have to decide on this year's challenge. 2012 had me writing 104 personal letters, 2013, 365 poems. What should I do now? I really need to decide by today, because if it is a daily thing, I can't start the year behind.
Here are my considerations: Challenge 1: write something every day. Either a blog post (that I post), a poem, a letter, or a part of a story (one that I hopefully keep working on); Challenge 2: write a blog post per week (a bit easier (maybe?) than Challenge 1); Challenge 3: do a monthly challenge related to exercise. I've already decided to do the "Plank Challenge" in January, so I'm partly committed to this one; Challenge 4: Write a play this year (suggested by my mother. Not feeling up to this one); Challenge 5: Write part of a story every day (I've got a bit of a plot line lined up, and someday, I will write it).
Any other suggestions? Any of my suggestions that you like more than the others? I'm thinking of not doing Challenge 3 as my challenge, and just doing it because I need to do it...
Happy New Year folks! What are some of your challenges/resolutions for this year?
