January? Already?? Now, where did I put last year’s resolutions. . . .
Oh, yes – it’s that time. Again.
Time to unearth the various exercise machines.
Time to start the new diet.
Time to write out the resolutions.
I go through the same angst every new year. And by February, sometimes sooner, those good intentions have become nasty little regrets, tapping on my shoulder.
This year, I’m not making resolutions.
Instead, I’m writing out my goals. Yep – goals.
Positive, concrete, can-make-a-to-do-list goals.
I already feel lighter.
So what are your goals for this year? Have you mapped out where you are headed with your writing career?
I found some fabulous posts that offer advice for any goal you could possibly want to achieve – plus some laughs along the way. I’m going to put you in their capable hands, and wish you all the best writing year yet!
Let Jim Devitt’s list of goals inspire your own.
Larry Brooks inspired Jim’s post – and inspired me.

Until next time – write on.
