Looking Forward

20150101 Candle flame4

So here it is, the first of the new year. Did you make resolutions this year? Instead of just straight resolutions, I made a list of what I want to leave behind in 2014 and a list of what I want to bring into my life in 2015. That latter list includes not just resolutions — I resolve to write so much or so many times a week, for example — but also, what I want to attract into my life. 

Writing it that way leaves more up to the universe to guide you to your goal in the best possible way instead of in the way you think you should go. For example, if I say that I want in 2015 to develop relationships with people who share my interests and goals, that leaves the door open for me to do my part — maybe attend more events that focus on writing for instance — but it also leaves the door open for encounters I couldn’t predict or control that the universe has orchestrated for me. And now that I have in mind my goal of connecting with like-minded people, I’ll be more open to those chance encounters.

So what does this have to do with your writing? Maybe nothing, maybe everything. That’s up to you, but if you’re looking for suggestions, here are a few:

  • I resolve to make writing a priority in my life instead of the last thing I try to cram in after everything else is done.
  • I resolve to write what I want.
  • I want my writing to reach the people who most need it or will most enjoy it. Or who will most help me move to the next stage in my writing career.

New Year’s day might be over but it’s not to late to think about what you want your 2015 to look like. Good luck and Happy New Year!
