Sitting here while writing a speech for my son’s wedding next year, I’ve been thinking. Yes, I know I do a lot of it. We writers live in our heads which isn’t a bad thing.
Anyway, back to Resolution. I bought a writer’s diary for 2021 and I’m already filling in the to do list part of it. I’ve been making a plan of action that highlights the areas I need to focus on next year. I want to complete two new novels. One is already sitting on my computer. A crime novel I wrote before Stone Angels. I have at least eight other books at various stages sitting on my computer.
Having a plan helps me to stay focused. I’m trying to tidy up loose ends. I have a couple of projects on the go, I need to finish. Then I’ll starting a new project in January. This one I’m really excited about as I’m taking the characters from The Funeral Birds and give them space to develop.
I’m hoping that I can now write much quicker as my ability to craft a story is more refined. Of course my future books won’t be as long as Stone Angels, but I hope the readers will find them just as enjoyable. Are you busy making plans for 2021 with your writing?
I look forward to reading your comments.
