I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break. Did you take the time to make an assessment of the past year and new writing resolutions for the new year? My 2015 wasn't too bad -- I did publish 3 books after all -- but I confess that I'm much happier with my photographic accomplishments of the past 12 months than the writing ones. Which is sort of ironic, because I expected the year to go in the opposite direction. Oh well, so long as there is some progress I shouldn't be complaining, right? :-)
My new year resolution is to not to be afraid to take my time. If a story needs more time, then be it. Sometimes characters need to simmer for a little a while before their true personality can come out, right?
What about you, what are your new year resolutions in terms of writing and publishing?
