This is the year I start owning my writing process. Quit calling it horrible, or slow. Embrace it.
This is the year I recognize that doing it my way has helped me produce nine manuscripts, six published novels, a 400-page published work of nonfiction, dozens of short stories, over 250K words of blog posts, and more.
My process may not be as fast or organized or glamorous as others’, but it works. And it’s mine.
My messy process is actually kind of fun too. And the more I go with it, the more fun I have, the more ideas I get, and the more I want to keep writing.
Why would I fight that? Why would I fight with myself?
So, in 2021, I’m leaning into it.
Finding the joy in it.
Finding myself in it.
Whatever your pursuits, I hope you’re able to do the same. Happy new year!
