Welcome to the year 2012! Well, we’re a month into it already, but I still want to welcome you into a year that might prove productive for your literary journey towards becoming published. Are you ready? If you’re not, then I have a solution: 12 steps to live by for the year. No, it’s not a weight loss program; it is something I feel a writer should always have in their repertoire…and of course, with me being me, it’s a little off the course of the main road the authorship.
Now, needless to say, if you are a writer who is trying to advance in your career, the primary objective is to write…everyday…all 366 days of 2012. Another objective is to learn from your everyday writing experience. It wouldn’t make sense to just scribble a few paragraphs on paper, and not know where to go from there. Think of writing as a contour line that started with the first words you ever wrote down on paper. With the love and respect you have for writing, there should be no breaking points. Each homework assignment, love letter, and résumé written should be a part of who you are, and what you represent in that contour line as you pursue your dreams of writing a novel. It’s all part of the process.
So, without further ado, I will present to you the 12 writing resolutions (in no particular order) you should take with you throughout the year to hone your skills, and to hopefully get you published. Remember, as eccentric as I am, don’t expect to find these points anywhere else, except here of course.
