We're starting off by reposting our popular June Year's Eve celebration blog!
As we hit the halfway mark of 2023, June Year’s Eve reminds you to assess your annual writing goals. Recommit to your 2023 writing plan, and make sure the schedule shifts of summer don’t derail your progress! Enjoy the holiday, but keep on track with your writing goals!

I love this holiday!
Yes, June Year is a holiday!
When it comes to writing and goals setting this is my favorite holiday. Some like January when you tap out lists of goals and resolutions with the enthusiastic optimism of the diapered New Year’s baby. But June is the month when the mature goal setter emerges to take stock, assess, and for those who really want it, decides to persevere.
Remember those sparkly goals you set six months ago? What? You forgot about them! ACK!
Get them out. Oh good, some of you remember your writing goals for the year. But, what’s that? You sort of lost track? You petered out in March and now you are aimlessly drifting through writing projects?
Remain calm – the June Year holiday has come just in time!
Get out those annual goals. How are you doing so far? Hey, look, you hit a few! Hooray – party with a few carrots!
You missed some? No worries. You still have a full six months left to hit those targets. Use the June Year holiday to celebrate all you have accomplished so far in and reset your goals for the second half of the year. Get ready to finish the year strong – 24 Carrot Writing strong!
Happy June Year everyone!
