I’m not sure why we circle around the date of January 1 to recalibrate our lives. Lose weight, eat healthier, exercise, set new goals. The only goal I banged out of the park in 2018 was my reading goal which I consider research toward my goal of one day writing a novel.
But this year, as I was on my last minute shopping run to Barnes & Noble, my eyes lit up when I saw a daily calendar of writing prompts by Writer’s Digest. I have really missed the daily prompt on WordPress which was way more than just a prompt because it allowed me to connect with other writers and discover new voices and I admit it keeps me away from blogging regularly because I no longer get that daily email.
Will all that change in 2019 because I vow to write more? Time will tell but so far this year I haven’t looked at the first three pages of the calendar. I’m going to pull out my sick card though because I came down with a respiratory infection on New Year’s Eve and I’m crawling my way back to feeling like a normal human being after finally visiting the doctor today.
So looking closer at the calendar I only see one prompt a week, on Tuesdays. I think that sounds doable. The rest of the pages are inspiration, advice from bestselling authors, etc. I think I’ll go back to January 1st tomorrow and see what I can come up with from the prompt.
How are your goals coming along?
