January 2nd and so far I’m pretty happy with how I’m going with my goals. Have exercised ever day this year – lol – and also devoted at least an hour to my writing dream. I didn’t actually mention but I do have ONE resolution this year and that is to write for at least ONE hour EVERY day!
In an aim to kick-start these habits, I’ve signed up for a Margie Lawson online class to try and help me beat some of the demons that are stopping me achieving my writing goals.
I’d say my two biggest demons are:
Self-doubt stops me finishing my Single Title because I worry I don’t have a BIG enough story. Self-doubt makes me fuss too much over first drafts when I should just worry about finishing the damn book.
Procrastination means I waste valuable time online when I could be writing.
Hopefully Margie’s course will give me some ammunition to deal with these demons and others I may not yet have recognized as being a problem.
I’ll keep you updated as I participate in the course. Is anyone else taking this class?
PS. Don’t forget to read my last posts about books read in 2010 cos I’d love to know which was YOUR best book!?
