Are you finding that you aren’t achieving any of the writing goals you’ve set for yourself?
Do you notice you have (valid) excuses for not being able to achieve your writing goals?
Do you find yourself answering the question, “So, what are you working on?” with “Nothing at the moment.”?
It can feel awkward and embarrassing, right?
Do you think you might want an easier path? An easier career?
When months go by and you aren’t making any strides toward accomplishing the goals you’ve set for yourself, consider that you don’t truly want to be a writer.
Because the bottom line is: writers write.
Writers find ways to carve out the time and do whatever it takes to reach their goals.
If you’re not achieving what you set out for yourself earlier in the year, why not take now to recommit to those goals? Stop thinking something better or easier is what you want and take actions toward your current goals.
Test yourself and your passion toward being a writer. Recommit to your goals; test them. They will either feel right and re-ignite the flame, or they won’t.
The thing about goals is… you need to want them in order to achieve them.
I’m in this position at the moment, and am taking this moment on this blog to recommit to writing my fiction.
How about you? Do you need to recommit to your goals?
