The chronicles of a fledging blog growing into its own.
Last month, my goal was to create a longer story around 1000 words.
That story is Different Views. If you haven’t yet, do check it out.
For May, I’m going back to an old goal, which is to post something every day this month. I hope this would be an interesting month for you as it would be for me 🙂
In March, I wanted to create a convenient place to gather the more popular stories on Logical Dreams.
Here it is!
Some stories I remember without problem, others I could not recognise from the just reading the title. How many have you read from the list?
For April, I would like to write a longer piece. Around 1000 words would be good. Either in one post or as a multi-chapter story.
See you next time!
Hey there. It’s been awhile. More than a week, actually, since my last post.
I knew February would be busy, so I didn’t really set a goal. Hence, there’s nothing much to report on my February progress.
This month, I want to find my ‘most liked stories’ and list them somewhere. Partly out of curiosity and also to provide a convenient shortlist that is less daunting than going through all the stories in this blog.
I’m pretty excited to see what will end up on the shortlist.
January flew by so quickly >.<
Last month, I aimed to post once a day. According to my stats I made 16 posts last month.
That’s less than I thought.
Well it’s a new month. So out with the old and in with the new!
For February, I… would like to take it easy. The next two months are going to be pretty busy for me, so I’ll aim to post regularly, but nothing groundbreaking.
I’m also not sure what other goals I can work on other than repeating the same few goals. If anyone has any ideas, do share.
Until then, hope you enjoy my stories 🙂
In December, I aimed for quality over quantity.
Well, there certainly were ‘less’ stories posted. As for quality, it’s harder to measure that, but I’m quite happy. To Leave The Palace was one of the stories that improved because I wanted more from my stories. Originally, the story was going to be short and straightforward. The fairy friend was a character that was only written in later, after spending most of the day thinking that the story needed more.
So that’s for December. What about January?
This might sound strange after posting so late after the new year, but I would like to post more regularly again. Once a day would be my goal this month.
As for 2018 in general, I would like to try more season/holiday special posts. Such as Christmas, Chinese New Year etc.
What goals are you setting for the new year?
In October, I was preparing for NaNoWriMo in November. Anticipating that I would be pretty busy in November, one of my goals was to create extra content in October so I can schedule them in November.
How did that go?
Everything that was posted here in November was something I prepared before hand in October. I didn’t prepare enough to post something every day, but it was nice to revisit some old stories and discover new paths.
How did NaNoWriMo go?
Pretty badly. I was pretty busy in the beginning of the month and fell behind very early. After that, looking at all the words I had to catch up on was so daunting it was hard to be motivated to keep going. It’s something I would need to keep in mind the next time I attempt NaNoWriMo.
Something else I noticed was that as I was writing the novel, I often found myself more focused on shaping structure rather than creating stories. That’s not the kind of stories I like reading, and that’s not the kind of stories I want to write.
Which leads to this month’s goal.
This month’s goal is quality over quantity. More plot, more interesting stuff happening, more drama.
I hope this month proves to be an interesting one for both of us.
Last month, I had two goals:
- Categorise my story by length
- Create a patreon page
I took a look at my categories, and I realised very quickly that what I needed wasn’t more categories, but less. So I’ve combined a lot of smaller categories together. Hopefully that makes the blog a little simpler to navigate.
As for the second goal. My I present… my patreon page!
There isn’t much right now, but this month, I’ll be posting up my prep plans for NaNoWriMo in November.
My other goal for October is to write extra stories this month so I can post something up in November while I work on NaNoWriMo.
Exciting times 🙂 If you would like to join or support me, do drop by my patreon page.
It’s a new month, which means new goals.
Here’s what I hope to do in September:
- Categorise my story by length
- Create a patreon page
Hopefully the former would make it easier to navigate this blog, and if you have any suggestions or tips on the latter please let me know.
Have a super September everyone 🙂
Last month, I wanted to focus more on another writing project. That… hahaha… didn’t work very well. I’ve left the project alone for so long I couldn’t remember where I was trying to go with it.
Moral of the month: keep lots of notes when writing ongoing stories.
Well, new month, fresh start.
For July, I want to go back to basics and aim for one post each day. If you find anything you like, feel free to like or comment to let me know 🙂
May flew by so quickly. I didn’t do anything groundbreaking last month, so there isn’t much to say about May other than the fact that there are more stories!
For June, there’s another writing project I want to work on outside of the blog, so I might not be posting as frequently. Something blog-related I would like to do this month is to revise the categories I have. Hopefully, the new version would make Logical Dreams easier to navigate.
Thanks for checking in. Hope you continue to enjoy my blog 🙂
