Welcome to 2014…
Hello! As Chris Hamilton has mentioned, I am taking over running the FWA blog and I am so excited to meet everyone and share the great posts that will be coming from the different people who have committed to write for the blog this year. I’m new to the FWA, but it’s already been an amazing experience and I can’t wait to see what the coming year will bring.
There’s always a great energy around the beginning of a new year. It’s an blank page just waiting to be written on. While there is hope surrounding the beginning of a new year, there is also a bit of uncertainty and trepidation as well. Sometimes it can hinder your creative juices and make you hesitate to act.
Don’t let it.
Approach the months to come with the mindset that this is your year. It’s a year filled with creativity and words. If you’ve been pulled away from the muse as I have in the past couple of months, make it a priority to get back in touch. Reflect on what you have accomplished and what you hope to accomplish, then make it happen. If you need some encouragement or inspiration, you are sure to find it in the guests who will be sharing their tips. You can also find plenty of prompts and such on the FWA Facebook page. There is also a Facebook group where I encourage you to post your writing challenges, questions, and tips.
Here’s to our year.
PS: I found this video of writing tips that I thought were interesting and I wanted to share. I hope they help.
