My post yesterday talked about the year that just ended - this one will focus forward, on the one to come.
The year 2014 was the first one when I chose a single word to focus on (and, by the way, didn't bother to talk about it in a blog post), and it was very good for me. Because of that, (and because the Lord nudged me in this direction!) I have selected a new word to focus on for 2015.
- Complete at least twelve picture book rough drafts
- Do substantial revisions on at least six picture book manuscripts
- Do at least one specific, relatively substantial, thing to improve my children's writing craft each month (e.g. take a class, read a craft book, participate in a picture book-related challenge, get a substantial critique, etc.).
- Work on a picture book manuscript for five minutes or more at least five days a week the vast majority of weeks.
My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1
