With all of the news that came out of 2020, it’s hard to know where to start. The year has been a whirlwind of changes and tragedies. While there’s some good hope for 2021, there’s still reason to be cautious. ‘Normal’ is a long way off, and there’s still no telling how Covid-19 will continue to change and redefine what we consider ‘normal’ in the coming months.
While we can’t tell what will happen, we can still celebrate our accomplishments for this year. It’s been an incredibly tough year, one that challenged us all in many different ways.

Although I’d also planned on providing a stat break down of how many words I’d written throughout the year, that ended up not happening. My agenda got lost somewhere in the moving shuffle and while I’ve got a new one, I’m still missing about four months of wordcounts.
With how insane 2020 has been, very few of my goals for next year have been focused on writing. There’s a variety of reasons for that, which I’ll save for another post, largely because this post is long enough as is and because I don’t want to derail the topic. There are however, two big ones for next year that I want to work on which do tie in here.
I freely admit I forget to do header images and pictures for my posts. There’s also relatively little reason for that because I do try to give myself plenty of time between writing and posting that I could come up with something. So, for next year, the goal is to get at least one blog image for the week. Prompts won’t count for that, largely because they’re already in an image format.
Secondly, I want to start having guest writers. I have a lot of ideas for how I want that to work out, but for right now I’m not putting any concrete dates or guidelines down for it. If you’d be interested in writing a guest post here on the Written Vixen, let me know! I’d appreciate any ideas you might have for contributions as well.
That’s all I have for right now, but I’d love to hear from you! What are your goals for the new year? What did you accomplish this last year?
