The Writer’s Lens - E46: A 2019 Confessional (With Goals)

It's hard to believe 2018 has already come and gone. So with 2019 here, it's time to do that age-old favorite: make a confession. 

Wait, you mean resolutions, right? Well, not really.

Whenever a new year comes around, we are quick to make lists of what we want to change in the year ahead. We make big - and small - life-altering goals that we hope and pray will come to fruition in the year ahead. And though I'm no stranger to doing such a thing, I thought it might be good to look at the year behind me too. Where did I "miss the mark" on my creative goals? Was I following my own advice? The advice of others? Turns out I have some work to do (don't we all?). 

There were certainly some wins and some misses from 2018. So in this episode, I take a closer look at where things went well and not-so-well as I look ahead to take on 2019. 

Here's a breakdown of what to expect:

2018 "Wins"

  • Podcast still alive
  • New logo
  • Downloads only increasing
  • Journaling
  • Reading more

2018 "Misses": 

  • Missed launch date - The Shadow Of Mars
    • 1st reason: I backed myself into a corner creatively
    • 2nd reason: Not at peace with product
  • Less interviews

 2019 "Looking Ahead": 

  • Re-purposing The Writer’s Lens - storytelling is paramount
  • Guests (new and old) 
  • Keep cultivating good habits 
  • Hitting that Deadline for The Shadow Of Mars
