Unlike most years I’ve done NaNo, I’ve got a few extra goals outside of writing 50k.
I want to blog everyday, even if it’s just to post a word count. I actually thought about even doing a short vlog everyday, which I may still do depending on if I can find some software to go with my webcam. I’ll have to squeeze in the searching in between all my research for NaNo, my regular reading, and the whole getting healthy stuff.
My second goal is, well, to actually continue working out everyday. NaNo has a tendency to trump any and all other aspects of my life outside of work or school (if I’m going to school), so this year I want to make a conscious effort to get up every morning and hit the gym (minus Sunday which is my day off). Losing weight and being healthy should never take second fiddle to anything.
The third thing I want to do, is not ignore my non-writing friends. No matter how tempting it might be to go to a write-in instead of hanging out with friends, I want to make time for them because they make time for me. Not to mention if I can manage to blog everyday, write at least 1667 words a day, workout, go to my job and hang out with friends regularly, why can’t I do that the rest of the year too?
So here’s to hoping I am successful this coming month!
