First off, I remember that there is joy in writing. But, it’s easy for other concerns to overshadow the enjoyment of creating with words, of telling a story that engages me as a writer and and demands to be told. I try not to allow schedules and plans to take precedence over the joy of creativity.
Great plans require great execution. So do good plans. I’m happy with my goals and objectives for next year, but I’m apprehensive about whether I will complete them all. During this final week of 2016 I’m taking the opportunity to think about some how-tos that will put my goals in reach.
