December is always a month of looking back what the old year has brought. Apparently for successful blogging and writing you are supposed to do exactly that for your blog and writing projects and then set new goals for the next year.
I am not good with goals. I set myself many and even manage to create small steps to achieve them and then I just stop. Of course, we could go into all the psychological stuff why this happens and I could analyze it from many a point of view but to be honest. I don’t care.
However, in December I remembered a few of my writing projects that I have started in the last few years but never finished and I got an urge to use 2017 to do exactly that.
What are those projects?
- a love story
- a fantasy story
- a sci-fi story
- a poetry book at Blurb
- t-shirts at Teespring
Ok, I admit the Teespring thing isn’t exactly a writing project but I want to create t-shirts that motivate writers and bloggers and do something on the mental health front too.
And I am happy to report that some progress has been made ;-).
I have finished the outline of the love story with Randy Ingermanson’s Snowflake Method and am now working on figuring the different viewpoints of each character to give it a little more depth.
At first, I had planned to put it in a book but as I am so addicted to blogging it will appear here on “Just Fooling Around With Bee or The Bee Writes…” later in the year.
And I have created a t-shirt to support my quest of finishing unfinished projects:
I have ordered mine already and can’t wait for the end of the month to find out if others want to join the quest. It will arrive in mid-February. So cool!
Last year I have already made a shirt with them with one of my poems:
Yes, I know there is a typo in it 😦 but never mind. The shirt is very comfy and I wear it at home all the time.
That’s it for this week. I am off to get on with the love story :-).
So stayed tuned on “Just Fooling Around With Bee or The Bee Writes…” to find out more about my 2017 finishing unfinished projects quests or visit the Teespring page (and for my readers in the US here*) to see the different shirts or even make your own!
*neither shops exist anymore as I do not want to support flying and they are produced in China.
