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
I 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!
