It is in these last few days of the old year when my good friend aka my critique partner and I make 2011 writing resolutions. Goals really, completion dates if you will. And it felt good.
"If you aim at nothing, you'll hit it every time." Milton Berle
So today as the new year slides closer, I celebrate one year older. Fortunately, the goals for half the year are already made. And my gift to self - I'm letting the muse do the writing.
Structure and goals are important but when it comes right down to it - it's the muse that has all the fun!
"What is The Subconscious to every other man, in its creative aspect becomes,
for writers, The Muse." Ray Bradbury
So in the waning days of the year I may just carry on and let the muse have full rein. Let's see how long she lasts.
And you - are you rushing or sliding into the new year?
