Happy New Year, dear readers. If you're a subscriber and received dozens of of posts you'd already read, please accept my apologies. We were transferring the posts to my website, www.BarbaraAbercrombie.com and they flew out like birds, landing everywhere.
2014! You have a whole new year in which to write dangerously. (And if you read Korean, A Year of Writing Dangerously has just been published in Korea. I find it hilarious that they put my photo on the cover.) Have you made a list of resolutions for your writing? It's a good idea. We tend to accomplish what we write down. Will you write the first draft of a novel? The final draft? Or a memoir? A bunch of essays? Poems, a book for kids or simply start a journal? Make your list specific. But be gentle with yourself. Getting something written often means getting started over and over and over.
PS If you read English, not Korean, A Year of Writing Dangerously is available through Amazon or your local bookstores. If you're facing a wall of writer's block, there's Kicking in the Wall. And if you just don't want to write, come to my new cooking blog, www.TheIntimidatedCook.com and give a dinner party for your friends.
(Happy New Year from the Marketing Whore.)
