The new year is upon us, and it's a great time to reflect back on the past writing year and set some goals for the next one. I always find it's best to keep New Year's resolutions within the realm of my own control: 'resolving' something like 'I want a six-figure book deal!' is great, but it's not something any of us can control. It might happen, but you're setting yourself up for disappointment if it doesn't. Instead, resolving something like, 'I'm going to write six hours a week' sets a goal that's attainable, measurable, and within the writer's control.
What are your writing goals for 2018? What are you most proud of from 2017? What lessons did you learn this year that you're going to apply moving forward?
Happy New Year!!!
