Well, everyone knows I’m as slow as molasses about achieving my writing goals, but this year I’m gonna try harder to reach them.
So, for those of us still working up the nerve to plan our writing projects, I found a really good and informative article. What I like about 2019 Writing Resolutions that Stick: How to Plan Your New Writing Year By August Birch…
A resolution is not enough. Make a plan for each day.(Mine: write posts ahead of time and spend the rest of my time writing on WIP.)
Just like a map makes travel less complicated so a plan makes keeps you on the right writing track. (Stick to my plan.)
Opportunities abound for writers but so does competition. Compete better by practicing. (I will practice writing something every day.)
Breaking a big project down into smaller sections makes it easier. Sort of like eating an elephant. (old joke, I don’t really eat elephants.)
Big ambitions are fine as long as you don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Remember slow and steady often wins the race. (Well I’ve got the slow down perfectly.)
Whatever your writing goals may be, they all start with one step. (Or one word.)
One word begets 500, 500 leads to 1000 – just get writing. (I’m on it.)
Don’t set your goals by the yardstick of other writers. (Wish I wrote like King or Rowling, sigh. But, I gotta be me.)
Push your self out of your comfort zone.(I’m already there.)
Putting into words, emotion, desires, hopes, and dreams are not always easy.
I could hardly contain my excitement when I spotted this post. Y’all know how much I love shortcuts, tip sheets, and lists of all kinds. So you can imagine my excitement when Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman co-authors of 6 bestselling writing guides. If you haven’t read any of their books, I can only assume you’ve been hiding in a cave somewhere.
They’ve provided 41 lists to make writing and finding a character arc so much easier. You’ll want to download shortcuts to your computer for easy reference.
It may not be easy to capture the essence of a character, but with these free writing tip sheets brought to you by One Stop for Writers, it gets easier. Now you can take your writing to a higher level.
