Finishing books…Reading and Writing.
Are you like me? Do you have a TBR pile that reaches for the sky? A dozen or more books that you’ve started reading but never got around to finishing?
I set a goal at the start of this year to read 40 books. I’m confident between kindle books and physical books, I’ve passed that goal some time ago. Now, with two-and-a-half months left in the year, I’m modifying my goal slightly.
I’m going to finishing reading as many books that I started as I can. First thing I’ll be doing it making an inventory of books I’ve started and haven’t finished. Then, jumping in and reading as much as I can. It bothers me that I have so many half-read books.
To that end, I’ll also be writing as much as possible through the end of the year. Starting Monday, I’m going to work on getting 2k a day through the rest of the year. On average. Yes, I’ll still read, still spend time with family, and still play a video game or two, but I need to get my butt back in the chair and start typing again.
I was typing a message/email to someone today and was amazed as just how fast I can type. It’s time to put my fingers to work and get stories told.
Something else I need to do before the end of the year: Record a number of stories and get those prepared for YouTube. Short Story Saturday will live once again.
I also need to record an episode of Hey! It’s Jay! That’ll be more fun to do than what I was doing with 5 a Day With Jay which was become more of a downer and not as upbeat as I’d like the videos to be. Given that no one watched those last few episodes tells me all I need to know 🙂
Yes, I’ve got big plans for the rest of 2021. I’ve got bigger plans for 2022. It’s time to get off my duff and sit on my butt. In this chair. And get reading, writing, and doing all the things.
Until Next Time!
