A few weeks ago I talked about, “The minutes you have left”, with the new year, there come resolutions; something I don’t believe in.
I do believe in a fresh start, which is what New Year’s is supposed to be about, not this whole thing about changing who you are. Be who you are, love the person you are, but make a fresh start with your writing.
If you’ve been struggling to get words out, write something for yourself and see where it takes you. Quite likely you’ll enjoy the ride more and may want to camp there for a while.
Once you’ve started your new journey, you’ll discover you’ve found something you like; writing for yourself does that quite well.
The year comes with great hope for our projects.
We hope for that breakthrough project. We hoped for it last year, but last year wasn’t this year and we’re going to kick that book’s ass.
With a new year comes new vigor, motivation and hope.
Our hope is to do better than last year.
Make a plan to have that book done within in the first four months. Set aside a time to write, Live your life and enjoy the journey, it’s your journey after all and no one can take it for you, so enjoy your writing the way you did as a child when you told that first story to your friends.
Because it’s a new year, find the time, make the time and write like your minutes are running out, because they are.
