How to Finally Accomplish Your BIG Writing Goal

Last year I decided that my fitness goal for 2020 would be to walk for exercise every day for 366 consecutive days. So far, I’ve stuck with this despite having a medical procedure in January and outpatient surgery just last week. On February 26, I had surgery that morning and still went for a walk that afternoon.

Am I saying you should follow in my footsteps and walk around your neighborhood while doped up on Percocet? Of course not! I recognize and accept that I’m a crazy person. But I am saying you should be deeply committed to your goals and to your success and not just interested in it.

Though walking every day is a fitness goal, doing so for the past two months has taught me a lot about what it will take to accomplish my writing goals, too.


My 40 Before 40 List

Today I turn 39. Today I enter the last year of my 30s. Today I begin my 40 Before 40 project!

And this will be my obsession for the next 366 days, so brace yourself!

I love lists and I am completely obsessed with setting and going after goals, so making a list of 40 things to do before I turn 40 is the best gift I could give myself.

I’ll be tracking my progress on my Instagram Stories, so I hope you will follow along @seejavaciawrite.

This year will be 366 days to become the fierce and fabulous woman I want to be in my 40s.

I know that this next year will test my faith and my strength like no year before ever has. But I’m ready.

Let’s do this!


Get Back on Track with Your New Year’s Goals

For reasons I’m not ready to write about publicly, January 2020 was the worst month of my life. So my New Year’s goals were nowhere near front of mind.

Fortunately, I spent most of January in 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting with my church. My faith, my family, and my close friends got me through the things I had to face and I know they will get me through the things to come.

But I want a do-over.

So, 2020 starts for me today. And since February is my birthday month, this month truly will bring the start of a new year.

If January was a dumpster fire of a month for you, too, let’s start over together. Happy New Year!

Here’s what I’m doing to get back on track with my New Year’s goals.


My Goals for 2020

Girl, it’s time to level up.

My inner voice has been saying this to me a lot lately. My husband and my best friend have been telling me this, too. And I’ve decided to listen to all of them.

That’s why I chose “GROWTH” as my word for 2020 and that’s why I’ve set 10 goals for 2020 that will take me to the next level in every area of my life.


20 Things to Do Before 2020

I’m a huge fan of the mantra “December is the new January.” I believe if I’m going to be successful next year I have to start planning and preparing for that success this year.

If you’re looking to get a jumpstart on your January, too, here’s a list of 20 things I think writers should do before 2020.
