My first goal of the year is to write more. This particular goal doesn’t really need a detailed plan or timeline. I can say it all in one sentence: I’m going to write for at least one hour everyday.

Although initially this goal is about little more than putting words on a page, eventually I want those words to add up to well-crafted work. So, as a corollary to this goal, I’m going to focus on my craft this year as well.
