So, how are you doing with those resolutions?


Did you make any writing resolutions this year? If so, how are you doing? Isn't this about the time we stray from them?

I think my only resolution was to write. I can always attain that. When I look at my writing, I like to remember that there is no success or failure in writing. Writing is merely a progression of refinements. When I think in terms of progressions, I find there's no need to judge my writing harshly. Rather, I just work through it and hope to show improvement with each draft.

My only resolution was to make of each day what I could. And I've finished revising the unfinished novel, and I likely have about 5 or 6 chapters to write to finish it.

Yippee! I'm off to write!

No resolutions, only Targets To Achieve. I have just completed my first one. I self published my children's book. It nagged at me all through 2010, so now it is happy in the wide world. It leaves me to play with my other projects.

No resolutions - just a goal and the steps needed to get there - Goal - get a publishing or agent contract. Steps -write, revise, polish, send, repeat.

No resolutions for me either. I tend to stray from any goals or plans I make, so I just do lists each day to remind of what needs to be done and even then I forget. LOL

I had mentioned that I am doing "refinements" instead of resolutions...read about that on "I Have Cat" and it resonated with me loud and clear!
