Goals for 2014! Goals for 2014!

I’m not a resolutions kind of girl, mostly because I don’t have a lot of vices that I feel the need to quit. Usually, it was trying to stop biting my nails but I’ve managed to stop that and grow my nails out so I don’t have anything any more! Except…maybe my addiction to energy drinks needs to be curbed…Anyway! I have some goals for this year! Primarily they’re gaming and blogging goals, but I’ve also included a few personal goals at the end.

Gaming Goals

» Reach level 50 in Bard, Summoner/Scholar, Culinarian and Fishing in Final Fantasy XIV.
» Start an EVE Online business with Mz Dazy.
» Complete my second playthrough of the Mass Effect trilogy, this time pure Paragon.
» Finally finish Outlast and, dare I say it, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Maybe even A Machine for Pigs!
» Try being friendly in DayZ for more than about five minutes.

Blogging Goals

» Blog at least two to three times a week.
» Set up another editorial calendar and stick to it.
» Start tracking my writing via the blog, and share some of my writing. See more writing goals below!
» Track my FFXIV gameplay through a specific blog. Again.

Personal Goals

» Return to the gym, twice a week. Continue training at home.
» Start learning proper swordplay. Practise, often.
» Participate in National Novel Writing Month in November. Win.
» Complete my first novel, Drifters, and the short stories I’ve been planning.

What are your goals and resolutions for 2014? Will this be “your year”?

  • I need to get writing. I actually wrote almost 2,000 words the other night just because there was a story in my head. Amazing how inspiration hits you sometimes, isn’t it?

    • Totally! That’s how I usually end up writing. I’ve had a few ideas running around in my head for years now, and I need to get them written down but I always find ways to distract myself!

  • I participated & won NaNoWriMo in 2013! =) I’m definitely going to participate again this year. Good luck to you!

    • I failed this time around, but I finished in 2010 and 2012 and it was a great feeling, so I have to do it again! Thanks so much, and good luck to you too! 🙂

  • Yay, a pure paragon playthrough! Being Saint Shepard is really fun, promise.

    • I think I might enjoy it! I kinda liked being badass paragade (though I consider my Shep more renegon haha). I basically made most of the decisions I would’ve made if I were Shep, but with a little more edge to it. Occasionally I went with the “mean” option…often the, “What would I do if I weren’t afraid of consequences?” Like punching the reporter in the face! I don’t think I could go full renegade. I really want to for the sake of completeness, but I’m not sure I could stomach it after hearing about your troubles with the playthrough. 🙁
