A Little Each Day


Most years I don’t make a New Year’s Resolution, but this year I agreed with myself to write each day no matter what with the intention of improving my skills and moving in the direction of publishing. It is March 25th and I have followed this agreement with myself. Some days I work on my current novel and some days I edit my work, with a certain goal such as continuity, characterization, imagery, dialogue, etc. Just a little goal for each day is manageable, and I feel so much satisfaction when I move away from the computer and consider what the rest of the day holds. A walk on the beach, preparing a meal, writing to a friend, these things all have more importance once I’ve given my full attention to my work. Each task seems more meaningful.

  1. Amber – I found your blog and website through Terrill Welch’s Creative Potager blog (http://creativepotager.wordpress.com/). I’m Laurie Buchanan at Speaking from the Heart (http://holessence.wordpress.com/). My favorite thing on the planet is trees (see Dancing with Trees at http://www.holessence.com/dancingwithtrees.html). We just started carrying the most amazing 52-card meditation deck at our wellness center; they’re called Curiositrees. Here is a link directly to their website — I think you’ll be amazed too
