Yay! We survived another year! I don’t know about you, but sometimes that goal feels rather iffy during the year, so yes, surviving is an accomplishment. *smile*
The New Year is a time of wrap-ups and resolutions. We might make a list of our favorite books or review our accomplishments of the previous year. Or we might think about what we can improve over the upcoming year.
I try to avoid making myself feel guilty by thinking of all the things I didn’t do last year. And I’m also not one for making New Year’s Resolutions that never survive the month of January.
Instead, I focus on the positive side of moving forward, like seeing the New Year as a blank page on which we can create a new story for our life. In other words, I like the idea of fresh starts.
So I loved a writing tip I saw just before leaving for the annual Christmas visit to my brother’s house. I wish I could give credit to the person who came up with the idea, but I saw it discussed in multiple Twitter threads, so I’m not sure who or where it started. Basically, the ideas is to draft our story in a different font than usual to help us see everything with fresh eyes.
