New Year 2016 Resolutions I actually kept

There is a general consensus that 2016 has been a crap year. Between politics, the deaths, of beloved celebrities, and many more shenanigans, there are a lot of reasons that support that.

However, I would say 2016 has not been all bad. In fact, I would go so far as to say there are parts that have actually been *gasp* good. So, during this time of year when people are dragging out their New Year’s resolutions lists for 2017, I thought I would show you some of my fulfilled 2016 resolutions before I go spouting off my goals for next year.

Release 3 books

This year, I have successfully reedited, redesigned, and re-released three separate books. Two of them have been published before, but between the redesigning of the covers and the reediting of the manuscripts themselves, I’m counting them as brand new.

Read 35 books

It’s less than half my record of 78 in one year, but this is on top of being at uni full-time! I read some pretty awesome books this year, discovered some new authors, familiar authors, and read in a massive array of subjects! Not a bad deal, if you ask me.

Write 3 books

Okay, so not counting the three I released, I have written up the first two drafts in a dragon shifter series plus a prequel novella for the Fanged series. I am very pleased with myself and it was an absolute blast.

Finish my first semester at a four-year university

did officially finish my first semester with all A’s, might I add! Yes, I am pleased as the cat that ate the canary. Bwahaha! I’ve also made friends, started playing in a Pathfinder group, joined a few clubs, gotten an internship…yeah, I think I did pretty good.

What are some of your 2016 resolutions that you achieved? Are there some good things that happened in your 2016? Tell me in the comments!


    1. It’s mostly just pathological obsession with my writing quotas, haha. Thank you! Coming from your blog, I know you haven’t had a bad year yourself!

  1. Oooh congrats on the all As!! THAT IS AWESOME. And yayyy for achieving writing goals! My goal was to write 2 books and I ended up writing three.😜 Overachiever YES but my goal to edit more absolutely died in my face. Ha…hahaah…*sobs* Why is editing so hard omg.
    And that is like SO AMAZING you read so much plus did uni. *bows to your skills*

    1. Girl, you read like 600,000 books. I think you pretty much killed it this year regardless of the editing. BUT YES. Editing is the bane of my existence. Ugh. I have been known to do terrible things such as laundry and homework just to put it off. *shudders* Terrible, terrible.
