I made a batch of pancakes for my kids this morning. It's tradition. I use pancake batter to form their initials and the grade they're starting, we open the new school supplies, and take pictures. We've done this for years.
It got me thinking about my 'new year' as a writer. September is a great time to reevaluate where I am. Like my daughter's plate of pancakes in the picture, it shows who she is and where she's going.
Who am I as a writer? What are my goals this year, and what do I hope to accomplish by the time summer blows my schedule to bits?
I thought about these things last year, and wrote a post Back to School, Back to Writing. I hope it encourages you.
How is the new school year affecting you as a writer?
