New Semester. New Year. New Goals.
January 6th, 2015 by Coral

Well, a new semester is starting for me on Wednesday. I’m going to have some fun classes, and a different schedule, but I’m going to get back on posting. I know I let it slide over the holidays (Partly due to internet crashes, I swear) but I will still be posting. Maybe not every day, but at the very least every week. Poetry, book reviews, stories. The works.

 

With the new year, most people are making resolutions. Resolutions has never been a good word for me. Through my experience, personally, I can’t follow through with new years resolutions. Instead I like to set Year Goals. So, to keep me accountable, I’m going to share some of those goals.

 

Goal Number One: Get My Work Published

 

For real! Not that my blog isn’t great, but I’m going to finish polishing up some of my work and try to get some good recognition out of it. That’s what I’m going to school for, right? I have several things almost ready, and if I set my mind to it and get down and do the work, I can get it ready in no time. So, that’s the first goal.

 

Goal Number Two: Get More Connections

I am going to network like crazy, try to find a niche in the widespread writing community and find more angles to get feedback on my work. While I may not agree with the phrase “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know,” I do agree that WHO I know does have at least something to do with my success. Knowing good people would at least speed up my progress as a writer, that’s for sure.

 

Goal Number Three: Get Children’s Book Illustrated And Published

So, here’s where you guys come in, I hope.  I have written (another thing that I’m polishing) a children’s book called “the Quiet Dragon.” My goal for The Quiet Dragon is to self publish it and donate the proceeds to a research fund for Potter’s Syndrome. Potter’s Syndrome is a birth defect that means a baby doesn’t develop kidneys, and therefore has stunted lung development. It is nearly always fatal, very hard to treat, and has to be caught before the baby is born for there to be any hope of survival. My youngest brother, Freddie, died of this, and I have another friend who is currently pregnant with a baby that has Potter’s Syndrome. My donations would go toward research to help find the cause of it, and hopefully lead to better treatment and prevention of this disease. My hope is that I can find an illustrator that will help me by doing the art for charity. That’s one of my goals, so we’ll see how easy that one turns out to be.
