So Far, So Great

I like to let the new year marinate a bit before deciding whether or not to give up on it. I figure I might as well give it a chance. So far, 2019 has been pretty good. I've spent a lot of time going over critiques and feedback of my latest edit and taken time to let that advice and those thoughts and ideas bounce around and sink in. Also, I've gotten back into reading after a long few months of writing and editing.

Sometimes, I get a singular focus and seem intent and able to do one thing at a time. All my spare time goes into editing, for example. Other times, I can multitask, writing and reading (not at the same time) during my free time in a given day.

Often in the new year, we make resolutions that we break after a few months, this year, I just wanted to take some time to really evaluate my writing and style, polish my skills and manuscript, and gather new ideas and flesh out old ones. Not really a resolution, rather not a new one, more like a continuation of my writing process. Without growth, I'd stagnate and that's no fun to read about. Or smell.

So, I'm hopeful that 2019 will continue to be great and I'll gain wonderful experience, advice, and continue striving toward achieving my writing goals.
