Only two days left in 2010. How amazing is that? Use these days to reflect on this past year as you prepare your goals for 2011. Did you accomplish what you had set out to do? How did you overcome those inevitable roadblocks and creative lulls? What will you do differently in 2011?
Give yourself due credit for your accomplishments, even if you don't feel as though you've moved in your right direction. Remember each step builds upon the one before. Take the lessons you've learned--or ignored--and start this new year strong in determination and courage.
I like that--strong in determination and courage. A successful writing career--in fact any goal--requires both. Because achieving a goal requires change. As Cheryl St. John says, "If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you always got."
So, what changes do you plan for 2011?
