Another Tuesday comes and goes, just as another year ends. It is easy to be charmed by the novelty of a turned calendar, but I’ve come to realize the only change that makes a real difference is one’s attitude.
If I resolve to do anything in 2013, it is simply to maintain a positive attitude. As a writer, self-doubt seems to be a job requirement, but in my experience, self-doubt has been a poison–preventing me from taking risks, challenging my self-worth, and adding guilt to the writing experience. The antidote is an invincible positive attitude. I won’t pretend that dark days don’t come after a rejection or scathing review, but to have the will to continue, thinking positively is necessary. I’m taking a healthy dose for 2013.
What’s your writing resolution?
