My New Year’s Resolution this year isn’t to get an agent.
Or a book deal.
Or even get to published in any shape, way, or form.
This year’s resolution is to simply stay in the game.
I will not stop writing.
I will not stop blogging.
I will not stop making connections.
I will not stop querying.
I will not stop critiquing.
I will not stop learning and improving my craft in any way I can.
I will not stop.
Because this is what writers do.
Real writers- the ones that eventually make it onto your bookshelves or into your kindle are there because they did. not. stop.
THAT is my goal this year. No matter what happens- for the next twelve months- January to December, I will keep doing what I’m doing.
Because through the deception, the small victories, the heartache, the difficulties, hair-pulling revisions and personal matters knocking down your door- sometimes the most difficult thing to do is to just. keep. swimming.
Even swimming in place is something to be proud of:)
