A year ago, I posted my 2022 reading and writing resolutions. Now it's time to check in and see how I did.
Goal: Read 45 books
Achieved! I read 45 books exactly and reviewed 23 of them (see links below)
Goal: 8 of those books would be indies
Achieved! I read 8 indies exactly and reviewed 3 of them (see links below)
Goal: Greater than 50% of the books would be written by female authors
Achieved! 66.66% were written either exclusively by women or at least one woman, where multiple authors contributed
Goal: At least 50% of the books would be written by authors who have a marginalized identity.
Achieved! 55.55% were written either exclusively by or including at least one author with at least one marginalized identity
I read a ton of great books this year. It was a good mix of new, old, big hits, and quieter releases. SciFi and Fantasy tied as my most common genres, which is no surprise as those are always my favorites.
Here's my reading list from 2022:
Goal: Have my WIP query ready by February
Achieved! I sent my first round of queries for this project in February 2022.
Goal: Send at least 5 queries per month
11/12 on this one, can't win them all, though some months I sent more than 5.
Goal: Complete the first draft of my next WIP by August 2022
Nope! This one is still under construction.
Goal: Continue attending writing groups whenever possible
Goal: Keep up with this website
Achieved! A couple months were slimmer on content than others, but that's the way it goes sometimes.
I'm still deciding on my 2023 resolutions/goals. Did you achieve your 2022 goals? Did we read any of the same books? Let's discuss in the comments!
