My New Year’s Resolutions for writing is to finish my current novel by the end of January. Also, I wish to write an entire rough draft for a companion novel in seven months, that’s fast for me, as well as compete in NaNoWriMo.
The way I see it, it’s go big or go home with these writing resolutions. Aim for the stars when you’re setting your goals; reality is tough enough already so you don’t need to settle when creating goals. It might sound a bit cliché to say this but, if there’s a will there’s a way. And you have to get that will first by setting high goals. If you can’t reach your goals, so what! You will get more accomplished in not reaching your extreme goals then you ever will by accomplishing your mediocre goals.
So, together let’s make 2012 the most successful year in Northern Colorado Writers history. Let’s all strive for our seemingly unreachable goals and crank out those words, sentences and paragraphs. I know that all of us can reach our goals, no matter how hard they seem. This year, go against the grain and make writing part of your New Year’s resolutions!
What are your writing resolutions?
