I'm a writer because I have stage fright.

New Year’s resolutions are infamous for being unrealistically optimistic, as life usually steps in to bulldoze our plans. That being said, I am — believe it or not — an optimist (I blame it on an increasingly healthy diet), and therefore have started to make New Year’s resolutions and stick to them as best I can. While I have more personal ones that I’ve made, I want to share with you my writing and reading objectives for the year.
Please feel free to share your goals for 2015 in the comments on this post, as I’d love to read about them and cheer for you.
-Have (at minimum) one short story, poem, or essay accepted into a literary magazine that I have never been featured in before the start of 2015.
-Finish the first, second, and third round of edits on one of my novel manuscripts.
-Write a new novel.
-Write a thousand words a day (can take brief breaks during holidays).
-Read at least a book a month.
-Continue to feature well-written and thought provoking short works from around the web for The Monday Post.
What are your reading and writing goals for the year?
