Long time no see!
The muse has been silent, and I don’t know where to turn to find inspiration. Just tired of late. Still two thirds of December left for the year to end, and I don’t know if there’s more blogging on the horizon.
I look at the goals I set for a consistent 2018.
Read 50+ books and not reduce this target
I think this has been one good thing about 2018. I read over 125 books. Around halfway through the year, I stopped worrying about reviewing each book I read, and just focused on reading. That helped a lot.
To write regularly and be happy with what I write
For the first time since I started blogging regularly, I won’t have written 100 posts in a year. That’s slightly disappointing. But yes, I managed to write a few short stories for my office magazine, completed the A to Z Challenge in April, started a weekly poetry prompt with one of my Tribe buddies Reema and wrote some wonderful poetry I was happy with… So I’d say this target was met!
Meet more blogging friends
I definitely did! I met a couple of bloggers who are based out of India when they came over to the country, I met a friend I made via my Write Tribe group, met a blogger I’ve known for ages and who I’ve come to consider like an elder sister… all of them for the first time! I also met some friends who I meet often and who have become like family to me! Lots of good memories!
To be frank, I’m disappointed with myself regarding my health this year. While I’ve not been taken ill or anything, I wanted to lose more weight than I did this year. I might even have gained a few kilos. I wanted to be more regular with my walks, but very inconsistent. Hoping 2019 sees this improve.
How has 2018 treated you? Happy with what you wanted to do in the year and what you accomplished?
