Welcome to a New Year Creative Writer!
At the end of each year is seems necessary to take a moment and reflect. While some choose to use this time to think about new fitness routines or career goals, I like to also spare a moment for reviewing what i’ve written.
I was very hard on myself this year for not writing consistently. Though, joining a community of writers definitely helped with this issue; I still felt like I had somehow failed.
Then I pulled out my flash drive and looked more closely.
I completed an entire novel at the beginning of this year. Worked on half a dozen short stories, some flash fiction, several poems, a massive research project, and started the murder mystery/ dating advice book I began during Nanowrimo. Not to mention stepping out of my comfort zone on most of the projects I completed this year.
I listened to 211 hours of audio books, adding 16 books to my digital library- I read 5 books including the one I’m currently reading.
I have been blogging more regularly including these posts here on at the Creative Writer’s Club.
I have actually done quite a lot of writing this year.
I challenge you to do the same. Take a look back at 2018 and think about what you accomplished. The stories you told and the ones you read. The poems, posts, articles, and even lists that you completed and all that you learned about yourself as a creative person and a writer. You might be very surprised by what you learn.
