First of all I would like to wish everyone a very happy new year and I hope that Christmas was enjoyed by all!
It has been quite a few weeks since my last post for which I send my apologies. The back end of last year saw my attentions focussed elsewhere which left no room for my creative side.
I am glad to say though that I am now back, with a renewed fire inside to get on with my writing. This year is going to be one of positivity and achievement.
It is the year that I will be published. The time that I have had off work over Christmas has really given me a chance to get myself into the right frame of mind to achieve what I want to.
Awhile ago I read a blog post that gave me the gentle nudge I needed to focus my goals into smaller steps. It is such a simple idea but a valuable one. To take a look for yourself just follow this link - http://mirrormaskfiction.com/2011/12/02/a-look-back-retrospective-on-2011s-challenge/
My own goals for 2012:
* Write one short story every two weeks
* Submit to one writing competition each month
* Regularly write 3000 words each week
I will officially be starting work on these goals on 1st January 2012 but so far this week I have already written over 1500 words, which is definitely a good start.
I aim to update this blog each week with my word count as well as progress on my projects. I want to use this blog as an account for myself as well as for you lovely people who give their time to follow a fellow writer. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Until next time,
