...to the last Monday of the year. Congratulations! It is no small feat.
I've just finished with two straight weeks of houseguests--whew!--so this post will be short and sweet. Thank you to everyone who stopped by The Writing Bug this year. We appreciate your visits and comments more than we can say--and we're writers, for heaven's sake.
As you reflect on 2013, please take a few moments to give yourself a special writer's pat on the back for everything you accomplished this year. Perhaps you had all kinds of exciting successes--representation, publication, a reprieve from frustration. Those are easy to celebrate, and celebrate them you should.
But often our victories are smaller. Attending a class, taking a stab at NaNoWriMo, getting up the nerve to pitch at a conference, sending another query five minutes after receiving the dreaded 'no thank you' email...without these efforts, we stagnate, so take credit where credit is due.
Even if you didn't write a single word this year, if you at least thought about writing, if you had an idea that inspired you, that made you think maybe next year...
I have news for you. Next year is right around the corner.
Best wishes to you in 2014. I hope all of your writer's dreams come true!
What do you hope to accomplish with your writing in the new year?
