Ho, ho, ho! Where did the year go?
24 Carrot Writing wishes our wonderful community a joyous holiday!
We hope you use the last few weeks of the year to look back at your writing goals, and get ready for a fabulous 24 Carrot Writing 2021. The best way to do that is to give your goals The Santa Treatment.
Grab a cup of cocoa, a plate of cookies, throw on the holiday music, and let’s get started.
- Make a List: Look back at your 2020 goals and make a list of the hits and misses on your plan.
- Check it Twice: It can be easy to forget all the wonderful things you achieved. Scroll back through your planner, your word documents, your folders, and cull through all those yellow stickies pinned to your cork board. Make sure you catch every accomplishment.
- Find Out Who’s Naughty: Okay, you missed some goals. Take a moment to consider what happened. Did your writing target’s change? Was it a whoops – missed that one incident? No pouting! Instead use an honest assessment of your missed 2020 goals to inform your 2021 targets. What can you do differently to move a writing task from the naughty list to the nice list in 2021?
- Find Out Who’s Nice: Celebrate all the goals you hit. If you earned those carrots, make sure you pay up! Don’t cheat yourself when it comes to popping a bottle of bubbly and really giving yourself a party for the work you did this year. And you did it amid a global pandemic! That must be worth more than a few holiday cookies and a mug of cocoa!?! What did you do that made those goals happen? How can you repeat that in 2021?
Better watch out! Better not cry! There is a whole new year of writing possibilities mere weeks away! And 24 Carrot Writing is excited to share 2021 with you!
Enjoy the holidays and we will see you 2021!
