At least once a month I surf the ‘net in search of writing contests or other writing opportunities that appeal to me. I also try to stay aware of book festivals and author events within driving distance of where I live. There are several writing contests I’m toying with this month, but I don’t think any of them are going to pan out.
Other things have crowded out my writing time so far this week. Maybe it’s just an after the holidays let down. I’m trying to get rid of some of the clutter in my house. It’s dragging me down. My mind is cluttered with too many things, which makes it difficult to sit down and write.
January is a good time to get organized and establish good habits.
