I have no New Years resolutions, but that’s because I was not very successful in fulfilling last years. The problem, I find, with writing is that it is so easy to get distracted. I can find a zillion other things to drop my writing down my daily list of “to do’s,” until it slides right off the end of the page. So this year, I plan to go back to the basics—
2) Create first, edit later.
3) If there’s no flow, just write any way,(Butt in chair still
equals writing, even if it’s Gobble-de-gook.)
4) I hereby promise to finish one manuscript before I begin another. (just have to choose which unfinished one I should start with.)
5) I have decided that “slow but steady (writing) wins the race, not creative spurts here and there, that I think are pure genius until I look back later with an editor’s eye. (As I am working on a Sea Turtle book, I think that is quite apropos. )
I love motivating sayings. If you have a favorite, please post it. We all need help to get over the bumps and through the potholes in our New Year writing journey!
