At the end of last year, did you look back on the goals you'd set yourself for 2017 to see how many you met? Yes, me too. If you're like me, there were some succeses and some things which ... let's just say they didn't go quite as we'd hoped. We could call them failures, or we could look on the bright side and consider them experiments and learning opportunities.
If we can work out why we didn't meet our targets, and adapt what we do in the future so we get better results in 2018, then we're turning things we didn't do into things we're coming ever closer to achieving.
If you're feeling insecure about any aspect of your writing, including but not limited to your plans for 2018, then you might like to consider joining the Insecure Writer's Support Group – it does exactly what it says on the badge!
Btw, I was a runner up in one of the free entry writing competitions I blogged about last year. You can read my article here. I'll be posting links to lots more free to enter writing contests over the coming days, weeks and months.
