In the Disney/Pixar cartoon movie "Finding Nemo", the little blue fish, Dory says, "Just keep swimming." That same sentiment can be used to accomplish anything you want to accomplish. Just keep writing. That's all it takes to make your goals a reality. A little dorky, yes, but true all the same. :)
To make a creative writing New Years resolution list that you can succeed at, follow the tips below.
- Be realistic. Don't expect to be an instant success.
- Know your own limitations. If your goal is to sell your novel when you haven't even started writing that novel, you need to downsize your goal to finishing that novel first.
- Follow through. Tell yourself every day that you will not throw out your resolutions, no matter how far off track it seems. At the end of the year, your best shot is all you can give and you get credit for that, even if you didn't accomplish all of your goals. Don't give up.
Happy New Year, Y'all!
