Sorry for this, but as we approach the new year, this weighs heavy on my mind, and in some strange, unexplainable way, writing it out helps to ease my troubled mind.
Measure activity, not results. That means not only to be honest but to true to oneself. Your gut is the only thing that separates you from a robot. Write what scares you.
There is something powerful about leaning into fear and doing the thing that petrifies you. This is the year where you show all your scarsand maybe people will thank you for it. Regardless, you will be sharing your truth and that is enough. Try a new genre.
Are you a business advice writer?
Whatever you are comfortable with will ultimately cause what you create to stagnate, unless you infuse it with some novelty. Honor your calling as a creative and test the boundaries a little.
Push yourself and see how you grow. They offer themselves no excuses and do the work, no matter what. You need to do the same. This is how you will develop the discipline that turns you from an amateur into a pro. You will turn your passion into a habit. Nobody is brilliant on the first draft.
Everything else is just prologue. Pay attention, shut that big mouth of yours, and open your ears once in a while.
We base our careers on words, so the best thing you can do is absorb as many of them as possible from as many different sources as you can. Fast from social media. Get off Twitter or Instagram and spend a few hours a week writing.
Not your platform or your growing contingent of Internet followers, but the the thing that really matters: You will feel better, and the work will improve promise. So, take a brief break — at least a week — from the noise and focus just on the work. Write in an unusual voice or depart from a norm.
Get rid of all adverbs. Do something that causes others, maybe even yourself, to feel uncomfortable.
In the discomfort, we grow. So, mess with the status quo, and see what happens. It could be good, really good. An eBook, a manifesto, a full-length book. Nothing grows a writer like shipping. But do it anyway. Set a goal to actually earn some income from your writing this year.
I remember the first year I set this goal — it changed my life. Our son was born, and seven months later, I was making plans to quit my job and become a full-time writer. Amazing things happen when you set a goal, chart a course, and stick to it.Gold New Year's Eve Party Resolutions Mug Shots!

Well technically they’re rolled over from Hopefully this is the year when I get them done. Dec 27, · Over million Americans resolve to make a change in the new year, and most of them fail.
