Writing resolutions

New year, fresh start, blank pages to fill – where to begin? Our members share their writing resolutions for the coming year – big and small.





Blogging – bigger and better

My writing resolutions for 2017 are to blog more and better – to put myself out there, don’t be shy, write articles with a clear, insightful voice. Get out more and see things with I-phone camera in tow.

A sentence a day

So here is my resolution for this year: write at least one sentence a day that is purely for me. Pitiful? Perhaps. Did I do this last year? No. So progress then if I do it.

Wordstruck 2017

I wrote a blog post about my goals and plans for writing in 2017. The headlines: Help more businesses tell their stories, expand my training and workshops, be a better writer, maintain a healthy outlook, keep my creative jar stoked up. You can read it in full here.

Escaping the desk

1) Get in touch with the mystic. It’s all very well reading a Rumi a day but the time has come to write some, too. Incense and some Sufi swirling should help 🙂

2) Write on location. On a mountain, in a piazza, at the end of the garden anywhere other than the desk.

Endings and beginnings

No resolutions for this boy, but just a simple decision. I will finish the long-term writing project I’ve been working on for years, this year.

As the Dark Angels man in America, I’m working on making our first ever Dark Angels American Foundation Course a smashing success. Get more details and signup here.
