Earlier in the year I set myself some personal goals that I wanted to achieve. These goals were to identify and read 10 books by John Steinbeck during 2010 and to paint and draw every day.
I read 3 John Steinbeck novels but after the greatness of the Grapes of Wrath I found it difficult to engage with some of the characters in his subsequent books.
Painting and drawing every day fell by the wayside too. I just didn't always feel like painting or drawing and guess that the lure of the paper and palette box is not as strong as I once assumed.
I have decided to review my personal goals and will do so on a regular basis. As my interests develop, my goals will be reviewed and updated as necessary.
So, my new goal is this; to identify and read 50 books from the best English Language Novels of the 20th century. I am starting with 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee. I have put no time limit on when the books have to be read by and will read them at leisure.
Have you any personal goals you want to achieve?
