Strategies for a year of craft: a weekly writing schedule

    1. Much better now. This is a great post and I’m glad i got to see it. You inspire me to be better. I so totally understand what you’re saying- sometimes I’m in such a rush to submit an article for publication that I don’t let it sit and marinate long enough. Then I read it later and realize it wasn’t right yet. Even worse is when I just can’t be bothered with all the learning tools that are really necessary if you want to improve.
      As for having the money for magazine subscriptions have you checked the library yet?
      One quick question, you’ve scheduled yourself pretty tight, when do you find time to just sit and write.

      One of my favorite writing books is Stephen King’s “On Writing”.


    1. Thank you – I’m already backpedaling, wondering, “Why did I say all this out loud?!” I guess that’s where the resolve part comes in. Merry Christmas to you, too, and I’ll see you in the new year.


  1. This is something I am working on as well this year — the living for the journey instead of the outcome part (not that my writing doesn’t need improvement!). In fact, I just wrote a post about it, so working on the craft of writing, rather than what writing can bring you, resonated with me. I love your ideas, too — & don’t be shy about your adoration for alliteration (see there, I did it, well more like assonance I suppose!). Best wishes to you in the New Year and in keeping your resolution! Cheers!
