It’s a new year and many of us are trying on fresh ideas for the future. What will we offer the world in terms of our writing this year?
Here are five tips on getting the ball rolling:
Review the past year. Take a look at your mission statement / goals for 2016. Did you follow through?
What worked and what flopped? What did you most enjoy? What garnered the most response? Be completely honest.
Tweak last year’s mission statement / goals / life purpose.
What are your Personal & Family Goals? Your Business & Career Goals? Make sure to break these goals down into manageable and measureable parts.
When you organize, prioritize and specify, you commit yourself to achieving your goals in a manageable and measureable manner. If you are a believer in Christ, commit your ways to Him and know He will help you stay on course. You may also wish to be held accountable by another writer or close friend who will be honest with you and keep you on track.
Begin today. Write that post. Edit that manuscript. Enter that contest. There’s no time like NOW.
God bless you as you kick off a new year of writing.
Note: and keep checking back to make sure your work is lining up with your plan. (Speaking to myself here too.)
