Resolution #1: Write more, read less.
It’s not often that people actually make the goal of reading less, but I feel like I’ve spent so much time reading in 2015 and not enough time writing. I’m not going to stop reading altogether, because that would be silly, but in 2016 I definitely plan to spend a little bit less time reading and little bit more time writing—because I want to write two books in 2016, which leads us to my next resolution…
Resolution #2: Finish manuscripts for my science fiction trilogy.
I’m working on a science fiction trilogy right now and have a completed, somewhat edited manuscript of the first book. I still need to outline and write the second and third books in the series and I’d love to finish writing both books by the end of 2016.
Resolution #3: Play violin more.
Even though Melanie and I often talk about reading, writing, and books on our blogs, this resolution doesn’t really relate to such literary topics. I play violin and even though I talk about music a lot, I haven’t had a chance to play music as much as I would like, so I’m planning to change this in 2016.
