Children’s author Julie Hedlund, challenged participants of her 12 Days of Christmas for Writers series to post SUCCESSES (rather than resolutions) on our blogs this year. She believes the way New Year’s resolutions are traditionally made come from a place of negativity – what DIDN’T get done or achieved in the previous year. Instead, she suggests we set goals for the New Year that BUILD on our achievements from the previous one. I decided to participate in this Anti-Resolution Revolution! Here is my list for 2021:
I stuck with 12 x 12 all 12 months of 2021; I participated in JuNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo; I sold 3 short stories; I kept a monthly log of my writing achievements; I kept going when discouraged: I WROTE MORE PICTURE BOOK MANUSCRIPTS IN 2021 THAN IN ANY YEAR BEFORE! I’m pretty happy!
