Leave it to Sage Cohen and her new site, The Path of Possibility, to come up with something so wonderfully positive and productive. In this post, Sage writes:
There is no better launching pad into the great, blank page of 2011 than a thorough inventory of all that went right in 2010. With this in mind, I’m going to ask a series questions in a countdown to the New Year! I encourage you to take your time and answer one per day. Be as thorough as you can in listing every, single thing you appreciate about yourself and what you’ve accomplished in each dimension of your writing life–even if the best you can do is admire that you stopped burning your rejection letters. Deal?
It’s not too late to “backtrack” and begin answering the questions (they date from Monday, December 13). Here are two examples (from this past Monday and Tuesday): What was most fun, exhilarating or rewarding in your writing life this year? and What obstacles did you face and overcome?
This is one end-of-year list I think that every practicing writer will appreciate. I know that I sure do.
Have a great weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday.
