The Wednesday Discussion: Have You Made a New Year's Resolution?
Yesterday someone asked if I'd made a New Year's resolution. I had not for this year, but I have in previous years. I'd usually remember those past resolutions for about a month, then fall back into my old routine.
After being asked that question yesterday, I started thinking about what I could do to help improve my writing.
Procrastination is an issue I struggle with, and I could probably get a lot more done if I didn't. A writer mentioned in an article I read recently that to improve your craft, you should read one book a week in your preferred genre.
All writers love to read and usually have a stack of books waiting to be read. Because of time wasting habits, I have a hard time making it through one in a week's time. So I'll use my time more wisely to work on that.
There's my New Year's resolution, and I plan to stick with it! What's yours? And please share any tips that can help the procrastinators among us save time!
