Start the New Year by Expressing Your Gratitude in Writing


The beginning of a new year is a great time to express gratitude to those who have helped you succeed as a writer in the past one.

If you’re an aspiring or published author, send handwritten thank-you notes to agents, editors, publishers, book reviewers, mentors, teachers, critique group members and others.

If you’re in the workplace, thank those who have critiqued your drafts or given you opportunities to develop or demonstrate your writing skill.
