My overall goal for 2021 is to develop an intentional and disciplined writing practice that incorporates joy and reflection.
Something I struggle with is making incremental progress every day. Instead I work in short, frenzied bursts, which are productive, but leave me feeling drained afterwards. This year I intend to find a good balance between those two working styles. To help me with accountability, I'm making my goals public.
Writing Specific Goals:

Draft and revise additional YA manuscript
Revise Game On anthology short story
