A New Month

E. Tip of the Day: Everyone needs to start fresh once in a while, and the new year is a great time to do it. But for some of us, we need to do a re-start every once in a while throughout the year to recharge our batteries.

The beginning of a new month is a perfect opportunity to re-establish your writing goals. Take a look at your calendar, add major events–a wedding for instance–and deduct time that you will spend away from writing, including your day job if you have one.Then take a look at every day of the week and determine how much time you will in reality have to write. (This is important. It will help you take your writing serious.) It’s okay if you only have 30 minutes a day, as long as you try to set aside time every day. The chart may look like this. Good luck!
