I've been thinking alot lately about how I'm most definitely, 100%, undeniably, a Calendar Year Writer.
All my significant drafting and beginning ideas all begin in January, which is kind of cool and appropriate resolution-wise, and I'm betting I'm not the only one. Something about the new year just begs me to start fresh, to dive into that story that's been nagging me since early December, the one I was too busy with holidays and catching up to work on. Usually I already have an idea of where I want it to go and several random, spastic thoughts scribbled into the notebook by my bedside.
So, naturally, the rest of my year (post-January-March) is spent revising, sharing, editing, and polishing whatever book I started and wrote the majority (if not all of) those first three months of the year. Which means the end process usually takes MUCH LONGER than the actual drafting part. Yeah. That sounds about right.
Changes and polishing take time.
Which makes me wonder, why, WHY ON EARTH WHY, did I decide to try and write two new books this year? Honestly? No idea. (Way to go crazy writer resolution maker Kristi!)
Not sure there's actual room in my head or writing schedule for two books, but you know what? We'll see what happens.
What about you? Are you a calendar year writer? Or a NANO year writer who starts in November? Does the new year inspire you and remind you why you fell in love with writing in the first place? Did YOU make any crazy and probably unreachable writing goals this year?
Or is it just me?
