Yeah, I know. I said I hate New Year’s resolution. And I do. But . . . I also said that I need to constantly look at myself and my life and evaluate what changes I need to make. And in order to be a successful writer and blogger I need to do this on an annual basis as well. So I have put down some resolutions/goals/areas for improvement in 2013 and put them below. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Blog 3 days a week in January and then every day starting February 1
At least one of those entries will relate to the book I’m writing. I love blogging. I love reading. I love doing book reviews. But I have become so wrapped up in these things lately that my writing has suffered. So how do I continue doing all of those things and not let my writing suffer? I combine the two. I talk to you about my book, my characters. I share songs or quotes or pictures that remind me of them. I ask your thoughts on ideas.
Constantly improve on my writing skills, doing everything I can to produce the highest-quality book that I can.
Constantly improve the appearance and content of my blog so that readers and writers alike find something here that they like and enjoy reading.
Engage with you, my lovely readers, more. I will find ways to create conversation on my blog. Some of that will happen because of the 3 items above. I will have to come up with some other ways of doing this as well.
Well, there it is. A list of my writing/blogging resolutions for 2013. Before leaving you - a brief, personal note.
I decided to take a step into this world of writing just a few months ago. It's been a wonderful experience full of supportive people who were strangers this time last year. Thank you to my new, writing friends. I have found all of you to be encouraging, illuminating and unselfish. I truly appreciate it. Because of you, something I feared has been a very nice experience. May 2013 continue in this direction!
I wish you and yours an awesome 2013!
