Normally I am not one to partake of new year resolutions. Mostly cuz I hate to fail at them.
That losing 10 pounds one has really added up since my first resolution twenty years ago...But let's not focus on my jiggly thighs. Of course, now you can't get that visual out of your head (you're welcome!)
I do like one kind of resolution though - WRITERLY ONES.
So as much as 2016 sucked for some people, and brought joy for others, I'm glad to see 2017. It holds promise of words, words, and more words. Book births. Some book deaths, usually termed, OUT OF PRINT. Also the idea of ideas. The realities of agents, editors, publishers, marketing, promo. Wins. Losses. Queries. Decisions. Questions. And RMFW!
And best of all reading a mass of great books by RMFW writers.
With resolutions in mind, here are a few of my writerly resolutions for 2017:
I vow to finish more than 3 manuscripts this year. Mind you, probably not good ones, but still...
I also promise to, and please hold me to this, be more social and active in my community, both writerly and other.
And finally, I will make a point to meet RMFW writers, find out who they are and what writing brings to them.
What about you?
If you could take a moment to add your resolution to the comments, we'd love to read them.
