A Brand New Season Opens Up

On Sunday, we ushered in Spring. It is always such an uplifting time of year. The birds are singing, and the squirrels are running around. The rains are coming down consistently to wash all the winter dirt off from our cars, sidewalks, and siding. We can use the same metaphor of renewal for our writing too. We can find ways to reclaim our time, set clearer boundaries, and much more so that we can be much more successful in our writing career. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to create renewal in your writing career.

  1. Ask yourself if you should shed some habits that are stifling your productivity.
  2. Is there someone you can delegate some jobs so that you can write?
  3. Is there something that you need to let go of so that you can write?
  4. Are you cruising the internet too much?
  5. Are you watching too much TV?
  6. Are you wasting a lot of time doing nothing productive? Could this be a time where you can sit down and write for a while?
  7. Can you set your goals with more intention so that you are more likely to complete them?

By asking yourself these questions, you will be carving up some time for yourself. You will also reflect on some of the habits that you have fallen into unreflectively and need to change to be your best. I just love the spring season of renewal. As new buds start forming on our trees, shrubs, and landscape, may we too renew certain parts of our lives so that we can be the most productive writers moving through the spring into the summer. To your success!
