Christmas is a week away which means the new year isn’t far behind. I could wait until 2009 begins to make changes in my life but decided not to. I started with my internet presence.
I set up a Myspace page for my Ghost Stories blog almost a year ago. Then, realized it sounded like a good idea but wasn’t. I shut it down. I started a fiction blog a while back, was a lot of fun but lost interest in the story. It’s being shut down too. I noticed some writers are opting for a blog do-over. I feel like doing the same. My personal/writing blog has been neglected for far too long. It’s time for something new and different.
With that out of the way, I can concentrate on my writing habits. I’m starting with writing every day. Some writers are doing this page-a-day thing. Well, it’s more like 200 – 300 words a day type of goal. I’ve decided, starting on January 1, to write literally a page-a-day, taking Sundays off. Handwritten, it’s about 100 – 200 words per page. Writing one word a day is more than what I was doing last year and I was doing almost ten times as much during NaNo. Shouldn’t be a problem. And since I’m redoing my blog, I can use that as a way to stay on track. This is only the beginning for me.
What are your writing resolutions for 2009?
