Happy New Years! Okay, having said that…let’s move on to the action item for today…start writing. Today is the perfect time to begin anew when it comes to your writing. I don’t know about you but I have some projects that went unfinished in 2015 and my new year includes finishing those projects.
It is really easy to get caught up in everyday life and forget that you need to work on your work too. I am a freelance writer and that is actually how I pay my bills so I often find myself letting my work go so that I can finish one more freelance project….in 2016 I’m gonna cut that out.
There is nothing wrong with cutting a little time out of your day for yourself and your own projects. I always told myself that when I could finally work from home I’d be a writing fool but then I started freelancing and pretty soon I just didn’t have the time…that has to change this year…I, after all, am not getting any younger.
I don’t make new year’s resolutions…but I do make a few promises to myself. I find that promising yourself to do better and to do certain things specifically is healthy. So here is my list…
- I promise to take a bit of time out every single day to work on my books.
- I promise not to get so lost in making money that I let my work go.
- I promise to make it clear to everyone that my work is important.
- I promise to have at least two new books published by the end of 2016.
This is my list…what does yours look like? You own it to yourself and to your writing (and readers) to get your own work done as well. Paying the bills is good but feeding your soul is even better.
