There are hundreds of New Year’s resolutions that a writer could make, but they probably all contain the word ‘Back.’
Maybe something dented your confidence, and, like a rider after a fall, you tell yourself to get back on the horse…
Maybe you’ve been a bit unwell and have to accept being back on the medication.
Or (is this the hardest one?) you have to archive a whole lot of hard work that isn’t going to work, and start a new project: back to the drawing board.
[It is highly unlikely you have spent so much time on your books, so much time ignoring your other responsibilities, that your resolution about writing is to Back Off].
Fellow writers, welcome back. I wish you all luck in 2014, and I hope you get the backing of all the readers you are hoping to reach.
