The collective edition. I don’t have any stellar writing resolutions for the new year. Enter the Golden Heart. Write some more. Finish current WIP. But I noodled around on the net to see what other writers have on their lists. Many of them are the same we all know. Butt in the chair, words on the page,
Goins, Writer has 17 (from 2013). #6 is ‘write when you don’t feel like it’. I like that one, although I know that isn’t on Elizabeth’s list this year. #14 is ‘make money’. I don’t see that happening for me this year.
Writer’s Digest only has 5 (also from 2013). #3 is ‘self-edit as I write’. Nope. Not doing it. That is how I stall and don’t get words on the page.
The Writer’s Cookbook has a whopping 52 (from 2019). I really like the bonus resolution: read 52 books in a year. I’ll probably get that done in one quarter of a year.
Proedit has my favorite: Improve my fiction by having one conversation with an imaginary person each day.
Wordcounter has one close to Justine’s heart. Back up your data. And another personal favorite: sleep more. Oh that I could. I am much more creative when I get a good night’s sleep, or several in a row, but that doesn’t happen much these days.
What are your resolutions for the year?
