How are you? Ready to move on from 2020 and make this a really good year?
I expect some of you made New Year's resolutions. Good luck with them if you did. Mine is to drink more water – I know it's good for me and in theory it's very easy to do, but somehow I haven't got into the habit. Do you have any suggestions to help?
Of course I plan to write in 2021, but I've not set myself goals, targets, a schedule, challenge or aspiration. I tried all that last year and the stuff which happened stopped me achieving most of them. This year I'm going to write what I want, when I want, and hope for the best. I'll probably draw inspiration from the little purple book. Oh, OK, I do have one aspiration – to get my murder mystery published. I'll let you know how all that goes.
I'll be back soon with womag information, other market news and lots of free entry competitions. In the meantime, thanks to Carol Bevitt for passing on the details of this Christmas love story competition. You have until Valentine's day to come up with the pitch and opening. The winner will have their novel published by Penguin in time for next Christmas.
Best wishes for your writing, health happiness and everything else in 2021!
