ONE: I will write something every day.
TWO: I will set a realistic daily goal. It can be minutes, hours, word count, or pages, so long as it is quantifiable. (One needs to be clear on whether the goal was met.) And keep it realistic. (Why set up for failure?)
THREE: I will create a writing diary/calendar and record my writing achievement every day. I’ll star every day I meet or exceeded my goal.
FOUR: I will reward myself. I will treat myself whenever I accumulate X-number of stars.
FIVE: I will read at least one book about the craft of writing.
SIX: I will read at least one book on self-editing.
SEVEN: I will attend at least one writing conference, book festival, or class.
EIGHT: I will read at least one book in my genre with a conscientiousness of how I would have done it differently.
NINE: I will be supportive of writers. This includes not beating up on them or myself!
