Reflect, Rekindle and Relight
By Annette Cole Mastron, Communications Director for Southern Writers Magazine
Reflection gives writers a chance to be happy about endeavors of years past, while moving daily closer towards the dawn of a brand new year. This is the perfect time to prep your mind for your writing goals in the new year. What are your goals? Maybe 2013 will be the year you try writing in a new genre.
A favorite treat of the holiday season, for me is checking out my neighborhood coffee shop for their seasonal theme. They are always upbeat and envelope you in the glow of the season. This year's theme is "rekindle". While sipping a steamed holiday latte, it occurs to me, rekindle aptly applies to writers both near and far. Do you remember why you began writing?
Consider a relight for your writing career. Send in that guest post to Suite T. Update all your social media links. Create a website and or blog. Participate in all the free opportunities for subscribers of Southern Writers Magazine. Do a reading from your book for "Take Five". Develop a book trailer for "Must Read TV". Participate in "Mic Night" and "Southern Writer's Radio Show".
As 2012 washes away to past tense. let 2013 be your year to reflect, rekindle and relight your writing career. This will be your year to shine.
