This week I received several notifications in my email box, mentioning my year in review. My twitter year in review, etc.
I look back this time of year same as others. How many of my clients had a book release, received a contract, or won an award?
Psalm 90:12 says, “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Looking back helps us to make adjustments, so we can better move forward.
As writers, consider the adjustments you want to make this New Year to earn a different response from that agent or editor.
Practice showing instead of telling, tighten up your writing by learning to eliminate unnecessary words, deepen your characters POV (point of view), read that writing resource book, and hone your writing skills.
The result will be different next time, and you will be closer to your goal.
Niccolo Machiavelli said: The wise man does at once what the fool does eventually.
Let’s be wise.
