It’s never too late in the year to set your (realistic) goals

Happy Monday!

A new episode of our Diving into Writing podcast just came out, and you can listen to it here or wherever you listen to your favourite podcasts.

After having gone most of the year without many concrete goals, during this episode of Diving into Writing, Lucinda and I ponder some goals for the rest of 2023.

Here are some of the topics that came up:

  • While I did have some main goals for 2023, I realised I forgot about everything else I had wanted to achieve and complete this year because I never actually wrote those other goals down. Out of sight, out of mind?
  • Lucinda realised during the episode that she can’t just keep adding things on to her day and wants to try alternating certain things so she can get everything else done.
  • When our lives change, our writing habits might have to change along. When I was still teaching, writing every day wasn’t a possibility, but it is now. Lucinda used to write every day, but, with her current responsibilities, wishing for that back can only lead to disappointment, so she’s going to try to use her annual leave to schedule blocks of writing time instead.
