Personal Thoughts about January

Over the past month, I haven’t done anything on my personal blogs because I had an assignment from my work. I was asked to do a daily blog with a writing prompt. The project was called Resolve to Write. It was good for me in a number of ways.

First of all, it forced me to build the habit of blogging because it takes twenty-one days to make a habit and I completed this project for thirty-one days.

Writing Goals

This time of year, there is much talk about resolutions, goals, and commitments, so I guess I should be making some. I have to be careful because I tend to make impossible to succeed resolutions and so I set myself up for failure. But I do need to make some changes in my writing this year.

Over the last year, I haven’t done very much writing and or reading because I have been so busy with my job as an editor. With all my duties, I don’t have a lot of time, but I have got to make a little time every day to write a little and to read a little.

My Goal

I’ve been dealing with a lot of jumbled thoughts today about where I am going and what I am doing. I guess it is because of the end of one year and the beginning of a new one.

Anyway, as I deal with all these jumbled thoughts, I’m remembering a success this week. I was at my critique group and was able to quickly identify several hidden redundancies. They are the kind that aren’t obvious because it is not repetition specifically, but are multiple phrases that mean the same thing said in different ways. It shows me I am improving my editing skills in ways which were a problem for me.
