Writer’s Wisdom 53

Writing your New Year

The New Year is here, and for some of us, quicker than we thought, or at least that is the way it feels.  Going back and reviewing our goals, and discovering that we did not finish that novel, or edited that manuscript, or sent those queries, tempt us to start 2010, feeling a bit  incomplete or disorganized.

Well, let’s not duel on the past.  Instead, let’s focus on our writing in the present – everyday.  It is great to have big writing goals for this year; but unless we focus on our writing a bit each day, the year will continue to pass by, and our writing time, well, not as productive as we planned.

Forget about all the articles that you did not write, or the chapters …  Start a blank page and make each day a writing day.
