A happy writing New Year!

2017_january_newyearHow on earth does it happen each year? 2017 already!

To all you writers out there, now that the champagne bubbles have gone flat and the fireworks and holiday parties are only a faint memory, now’s the time to buckle down and start a new writing year with enthusiasm.

I know that I’m one of those who must start buckling down.

Sadly, I did little writing in 2016, although I did accomplish much editing I needed to complete.

Still, I’m happiest when I’m writing new material, and I have a dual story novel set in modern-day Rome and at the end of the 19th century that will be completed this year. See? I said it publicly. Now I have to hold myself to it. 🙂

I also want to write more short stories and edit the rather large collection I already have completed.

And you, writers? What are your writing goals for 2017? Do you generally set writing resolutions for yourself in the new year?

Wishing us all a happy and productive writing year in 2017!

    Happy Writing New Year, Kimberly! This first week started on a very productive note here as I prepped three picture book manuscripts for a contest. Keep your fingers crossed! My major project, though, remains the YA novel that I finished months ago but still needs some rewriting. I plan to be finished by the end of winter. Then I have two other novels for kids already started that I need to complete. So I should be pretty busy for a while 🙂

      Wow, Evelyne. You have an ambitious writing year planned. I look forward to cheering you on from afar! Keeping my fingers crossed for your picture book contest, too!
