HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Can you hear your resolutions cracking?
I’m not a huge fan of making New Year’s resolutions but this is because I’m such an expert at breaking them.
This is going to be a different kind of year, one where I keep my resolutions.
Too many times, I've painted ambitious sweeping strokes of resolutions that were, theoretically, great. Wild and abstract, they were too easy to ignore.
My great plan, the one that should ensure I keep this year's resolutions, is to acknowledge the ones I have made. Share. I’m going to add accountability.
I have personal goals which I've made smart:
- time specific
Then I made writing goals.
THE WRITING RESOLUTIONS (hosted by the Four Rules of Number ;)
+ ADD NEW KNOWLEDGE AND A NEW CIRCLE OF WRITERS INTO MY LIFE
Enrol and take a writing class and take an open mind and a learning attitude along with me
- TAKE OUT SPECIFIC PROCRASTINATION
Normally, I start each writing session by reading and commenting my way through interesting blogs and articles. From now on, I’m going to write first. I will reward myself with timed breaks where I'll get to enjoy and to be inspired by all the amazing sites I read and the Blogs I follow.
x MULTIPLY = RAISING THE WORD COUNT
Have you seen Sally Quiller’s 100K in 100 days? She has created an inspiring challenge to keep you busy and laying down enough words to build a novel. I’m aiming to keep pace, for MG that would be two books outlined and drafted in full.
÷ SHARE THE INSIGHTS I DISCOVER ON MY COURSE
The Intermediate level course in Creative Writing I have enrolled in is a very exciting opportunity. Part-time, this course will fit in well with the rest of my commitments. From now on, Thursday’s Posts will be TEACHER SAYS ;)
We will open the book. It's pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce
So say we all ;)
HOW IS YOUR NEW FIRST CHAPTER GOING?
