I know, I know, 2012 isn't here yet but while I have a little time before I start to celebrate, I thought I'd consider how I might improve my writing in the year to come. I don't normally make personal resolutions but a new year seems like an excellent opportunity to spend time considering the creative portion of my life.
Resolution No. 1 - Finish My Novel
This one doesn't require any explanation really.
Resolution No. 2 - Read More Books
I've always found an indulgent joy in settling myself down in a silent room with a book to keep me company. 2011 has kept me so busy though that I've got out of the habit of reading for pleasure. In 2012, that is going to change.
Resolution No. 3 - Give Myself Permission To Write
As I said above, 2011 has been an incredibly busy year, ending with a house move that I'm still recovering from. Gradually, I've allowed the school run, housework and commitments to other people to eat into my writing time. In 2012, I will put the onus back on my writing.
So there you have it - my writing resolutions for 2012. I'd love to hear what yours are.
All the best for a creative and productive new year.
