It's the first (or in January's case - second) Monday of the month and time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group post. A big thank you to Alex J. Cavanaugh and his minions for starting this group and giving insecure writers and bloggers a place to to seek support. If you're interested in joining, check us out here.
This time, like I suspect many others will, I want to talk about New Years goals. I have a multitude of goals for the new year, but firsts and foremost I want to begin a new book. Last year was something of a draining year and I wandered off the writing path.
But a new year is upon us and it's time to begin again. I am not making any specific goals (aka. 5 pages a day, etc.) because I'm not sure I'm ready for that. Starting slow is the best way I think, and then maybe trying to work upwards from there.
And as a way to help motivate myself, I've decided to dedicate this year's Blogging from A to Z challenge in April to my new book idea. That way all the research I do for my favorite blogging event will go toward writing a new story. [Ps. Sign ups for the A to Z Challenge are coming up fast . . . I hope everyone joins me this year!]
If there are any other writers out there with similar goals, good luck this year. And please, don't hesitate to share any success you reach with the rest of us -- I know I could use a little inspiration.
