The start of a new year is a time to assess what you’ve accomplished as a writer in the past one. Consider the risks you’ve taken that have led to your achieving goals. Think about how your courage, confidence and skill have increased. Reflect on what you’ve learned about life, yourself or others that can enrich your future work. All of these steps can help enlighten your understanding of your growth and worth as a writer.
Determined writers use their time productively to set and achieve goals. They look for publishing opportunities or create them. They seek advice from others and offer theirs when asked for it. They see a challenge as a chance to grow and learn. They bloom wherever they are.
