I talked a lot about writing in 2017.
I wrote about why you shouldn't be afraid of writer's block.
I wrote about how everyone is creative, gosh darn it. Please just write things.
I wrote about how to improve your writing by surrounding yourself and looking for inspiration where you wouldn't expect it.
I wrote about how to handle yourself well throughout the writing process, especially when it doesn't go the way you planned.
I wrote about some great triumphs.
I wrote about some great tragedies.
I wrote about what to do now.
I wrote about how to keep going when it feels like work.
I even shared some of my own writing, and that was scary--but so is everything.
I wrote about a whole lot more things, too, and if you've been following me throughout the year, you probably have the idea that I'm obsessed with writing. It's what I've chosen to do with my life, and not only do I want to do it until I drop, I want to help others find that same passion and write alongside me. I'm definitely no expert (I'm not even published) but I know what I am. I'm a writer.
2018 is the year I'm going to take all this to the next step, and if you haven't died of boredom by then, I'm hopefully going to hopefully share those steps as I take them. I want all writers to keep doing what we do best. Let's take stock of what we've done in the past year, and look toward what we'll do now.
We have 365 days to write whatever we want. What's stopping us?
