A fitting quote for the new year. Go forth and write your story for 2016.
I don’t plan on having many new year’s resolutions as, like most people, I find that each year I make a list of well-intentioned resolutions and I hardly ever keep them! Instead, this year I’m going to narrow it down to two resolutions. The first is a writing resolution and it’s pretty simple. I’m going to strive to write every single day of this year. Write (or edit) the story I’m working on. Or, if I’ve worked on my story till I am completely sick of it and can’t stand it anymore, I’ll let myself do research or work on another story or do some fun writing drills. But the goal is simply to write. To write something every day.
And there will be days where I won’t be able to find time to write at all. That’s okay. These things happen. But even if I can’t sit down in front of my laptop or flip open a notebook, that’s okay. I can still grab my iPhone and jot down a few notes to keep in mind the next time I’m in front of my laptop. And that will be enough to keep me going for another day. Or – and I’m pretty excited about this – I’m looking at downloading my work in progress (WIP) on the new documents app on my phone just so I can read over a few paragraphs when I can catch five minutes to myself. There’s all kinds of ways to keep writing every day. Even if it’s just a sentence. Even if it’s just a word.
As for the second resolution? You’ll find out in the next post!
So tell me! What are your writing resolutions for 2016? Or just simply, what are your resolutions for 2016?
