As the year draws to a close, it’s as good a time as any to do some cleaning. Do you have twenty blog posts you started but never finished? Go through them and see if there are any you can salvage for next year. Did you start to organize your writing notebooks? Why not finish doing that. Did you start to follow everyone on Twitter who follows your favorite author? That’s probably more of a long term project that’s outside the scope of what I’m talking about.
A lot people focus on putting words on pages when they talk about writing. While that is important, there are a thousand minor things related to writing that are often overlooked. And these overlooked minor details can often be used as an excuse for not writing. So if you do them now, you’ll have to find new excuses.
