to review and plan your writing life.
At this time of the year, I like to take stock of where my writing has taken me over the past twelve months. This provides me with a mirror of realities I might not yet be aware of, because what’s in my mind is often quite different from what has actually materialized. I have found, for example, that I chase publication in prestigious literary magazines, while I have enjoyed great publication success in journalistic markets. So what’s the obvious path to future success?
In my Morning Pages notebook I've been listing publications, pieces still in the pipeline, as well as ideas for new essays and books. I tried to celebrate my successes; I contemplated my disappointments. As the lists accumulated, I thought, why not organize them? Why not have a central place, a writer’s workbook, to review my writing year and plan for the next, akin to Susannah Conway’s workbooks unraveling the year that I love to complete?
So, I decided to run with that idea, and the result is this workbook. Find yourself a quiet hour and work through it. I promise it will be illuminating! And do let me know what you think, please.
Here's to all your writing wishes coming true in 2014!
