Hi Creative Writers Everywhere,
The year is almost over and soon we will be thinking about New Year’s Resolutions and Writing Goals for 2017
Hey, Not so fast, I challenge you to do a 2016 year-end review of your writing and tell us about it?
I mean…Think about it… what great writing success did you have in 2016?
What went well for your writing in 2016? Did you do any great writing?
Made the Best Seller List…Sold 5,000 copies of your book…Started a Blog…Got a Contract…Got an Agent…Self-Published your Book
Let’s share it on my blog!
So, here’s how I review my year (the short version).
What went well for my writing in 2016:
I published two books: A Sisterhood of Women Living Life and The Proposal: A Leap of Faith.
Two of my books were considered for awards: Cougar Tales: Jamaican Love and A Sisterhood of Women Living Life.
I was chosen as an Author to Watch by Best Indie Book Awards.
I sold lots of books on Amazon.com.
I already started writing books for 2017!
My Advice to New Writers (Pay it Forward to others)
Write. Write. Read. Write. (Remember: This is the key to being successful.)
Learn your craft—take writing classes and workshops. (Remember: Before you can make it big, you have to learn the ropes.)
Get a website—it is your bill board to the world. (Remember: Readers have to be able to find you.)
Use professionals—editor, graphics designer, and formatter. (Remember: You have to look good to your readers.)
Pay it forward to another author/any author. (Remember: You have to share with others.)
My Writing Goals for 2017
Create/Recreate my Action Plan for my writing
Publish my book, The Lady in The Trunk.
Publish a full-length romance novel.
Take James Patterson’s Writing Workshop
Social Media Plan-Increase the number of subscribers on my blog, CherylHolloway.net/blog.
Continue writing more novels and short stories.
This is Important. So, here’s what I want you to do:
Today, I want you to take some time to think about what went well this year for your writing. Then, I want you to think about what advice you can give to other writers. And finally, I want you to think about what your big plans are for 2017.
There are 525,600 minutes in a year. How many minutes will you spend writing in 2017? My 2017 Wish for You “is you will find the time to write the book you were meant to write during 2017. And you can make 2017 your best writing year, EVER!”
Even better? I want you to tell my blog fans and readers.
