With the New Year comes new goals, and my writing is not exempt from aspirations. While I feel my writing has improved this year, there are still many facets of my writing I would like to improve. Below I’ve listed four of my top goals for 2015, with the combination of helpful links that I think will improve my writing endeavors.
- Write Something EVERY DAY
This article from Lifehack lists 10 reasons you should write every day, and they’re all pretty enticing!
- Keep a Journal
There have been may famous writers who have attested to the creative benefits of keeping a journal (this article from Brain Pickings discusses this further), and as such I have decided that journaling will be one of my new hobbies to help enliven my creative spirit.
- Find a Solid Writing Spot
Brain Pickings lays out how to craft the perfect space for “creative flow.” Definitely an interesting read, and I will be referring to it often as I search to find my perfect writing haven.
- Create a Writing Routine (AND STICK TO IT!)
I have yet to find a writing routine that I feel strongly about. Luckily the internet is chalked full of routine ideas. This post from James Clear lists 12 famous writers and their writing routines.
Hopefully some of my goals gave you some ideas for your own new years writing resolutions, or at least inspired you to at least start your own list of goals! Happy new year and happy writing!
