Road Trip Wednesday: Check in – Writing/Reading Goals!

Hello lovelies, 

     So I saw the Road Trip topic for this week and I realized, this is a mighty fine question and one that needs to be answered. 

     This Week’s TopicQuarterly check-ins! We’re already 1/4 of the way through the year–where are you on your reading and writing goals?

     This Week’s Road Trip Song: Tonight I’m Getting Over You by Carly Rae Jepsen (because I’m slightly obsessed with this jewel at the moment). 

     Let’s talk writing goals. Seriously, I may need an intervention, or whatnot, when it comes to this particular topic. I need to stop staring projects! My head is just overflowing with ideas and I seemed to have to get them all on paper at the same time. 

     How crazy am I? (Don’t answer that.)

     But seriously, I have two distinct WIP’s on my plate right now and I decided that I’m going to work on both of them. 

     At the same time. Que the screaming and the hollering. 


     I know I’m probably taking too much on (especially considering my work madness) but I want to give it a try. One is a magical kind of a story and one is an adventure suspense. I’m having too much fun with both of these at the moment and I’m hoping I don’t go stark raving mad and actually finish both.


     Now, let’s talk about reading goals. Mostly, right now, I just want to make sure I’m reading. I know that’s not much of a goal, maybe, but sometimes, when I’m in the middle of a story, I forget the part where I NEED to read. Reading makes me a better writer. Reading makes me think. Reading is just all together a good brain exercise. I have read 19 books to date and I kind of love that. I’m hoping I’ll keep up. 

    So what about you? Where are you on your reading/writing goals? 

     I’d love to hear all about it!

     Much love, 

     Valia

    You are not alone in the madness! I have so many ideas going through my head & I meet people on a daily basis or witness something that I say to myself, “Oh yeah, that's going in one of the thirty-six projects you've got going on right now.”

    You're right, reading does make you a better writer. I also tend to listen to spoken word poetry to get some inspiration. Some people find that a bit weird (hey . . . I'm a weird kinda gal), but these poets sometimes see the world differently than I do.
