Every year, I like to set goals for myself. It can be about anything. In 2013, I want to focus on moving forward in life. I want to finish college soon and start my career but that won't happen until I face a few obstacles that are in my way. One of them will be publishing a novel. I've been holding back for a long time now but I think this year, I want to start putting the plan in motion. I'm not saying that publishing is going to happen this year but I think that it should be something I should prepare for.
Another thing I would like to prepare myself for is editing. I would like to get a bit more of this under my belt but I've never really had that chance to do it for someone or myself. Sure, whenever I read fanfics I tend to go through and edit them but that's because I just can't help myself.
