In the last two months, my creativity has wilted. COVID has inched its way into my world, a garden pest that latches onto one part of my life and drains energy away from the other parts. Luckily, like many things in life, I've found that with a little extra attention, my creativity has begun to perk back up.
This year, I am practicing more self-care while focusing on one writing project at a time.
There are certain obstacles I expect to encounter during my writing journey next month. I am developing a plan to keep myself motivated and set up to succeed.
Writing a novel in a month is an opportunity for me to improve both my writing process and my everyday life.
I encountered roadblocks in my past NaNoWriMo attempt. This year, I am examining issues in my writing process to help me succeed this time around.
I didn't write on vacation this past week, and that turned out to be a great thing.
30 years old and technology-averse, I am now navigating social media as a freelance writer and editor.
I am at my happiest when I'm writing, and I am looking to incorporate even more writing into my life in the coming months.
My latest birthday has been a reminder that writing is inevitably tied to other aspects of my life, for better or worse.
In this post, I discuss setting three goals including 1) Continuing to create content for the organizations I work with now, 2) Identifying more blog-writing opportunities to help expand my portfolio, and 3) Developing a plan for maximizing the potential of Paper Crow Blog.
