- Write down your New Year’s writing resolutions.
- You see a meteorite crash down and when you go to investigate you find it covered with strange hieroglyphics.
- You are watching t.v. on New Year’s day when you see a news report that says scientists expect the world to end at the end of this year. What happens?
- You travel back in time and realize you are in a parallel universe, but when you try to get back you get lost among the multitude of parallel universes.

It’s a new year which means it is the perfect time to both take a look back and reflect on the last year and plan out the year ahead. Ask yourself if you accomplished everything you hoped to this past year. Hopefully the answer is “no.” Not because I want you to do badly, I’m not usually that mean. Rather I believe that writers should have so many plans and dreams that it would be impossible to have everything.
Either way, get out your pen and paper (or computer for you younglings) and prepare to start this year off right by writing down what you hope to get out of your writing career in the months to come. Here are some of the resolutions off my list, feel free to post your own in the comments. Good Luck and Happy New Year!
- Finish at least three books, including one novel.
- Stick to my schedule of writing at least five days a week, regularly.
- Practice making ebook covers.
- Work on editing my manuscripts in a timely manner (I usually despise editing).
- Go to six new places or events (writing fodder).
- Win a writing competition.
- Get published in a print or online magazine.
- Learn at least five new skills (more writing fodder).
- Win Nanowrimo.
- Finish my first screenplay.
- Work on branding and marketing myself.
- Make at least one good book trailer.
