2023, Bookish Goals for Me

2023, Bookish Goals for Me

Welcome, 2023! Make yourself comfortable and stay awhile. 😉

As in past years, I’ve decided to share a few of my hopeful bookish goals for this year. 😉

1. Publish my A Very Bookish Easter novella

My entry to this anthology is coming along well, and I can’t wait for you all to read the finished product. 🤩 I think it’s gonna give you allll the cozy feels. 😁

2. Commission character art

This was actually something I attempted last year, but it didn’t end up working out, and I’m really excited to give it another shot. I have some gorgeous art of Kiera and of characters from the Arrows and Archers series planned. 😍

3. Dive back into dormant projects

This includes but is not limited to… promised sequels, “Awake” draft bazillion and seven or something, and a middle-grade WWII homefront novel. I am hoping to ease back into regular writing routines, and the big dream is to publish at least one new project this year. 🙏

4. Sell books in person?

It’s been a few years now since I’ve had the opportunity to sell my books at an in-person event, but I’m really hoping/praying/scheming to get something together this year. 🙈

5. Read 35 books

I barely made my goal last year, but I am planning to read a lot, so I’ve started my challenge at a nice, moderate 35 books. 😂😁 I’m hoping a high percentage of them are new indie releases. 🤞

There you go! Those are my bookish goals for this shiny new year. 😁💙 In the personal sphere, I’m also planning to continue working on my mental health and to move on from my current day job to something that fits my needs better. Also, more baking, but that’s a given… 😉

What are your hopeful goals for 2023?

  1. Those sound like lovely goals, Kate!
    I’m hosting a reading challenge on my blog if you want a little motivation to get some reading done. You can even earn points to get some of my books. 😉
    My goals? Read and write more. And publish a few things. Or more. I would actually like to publish 7 books this year, but we’ll see if that happens.
