In a few days, we will enter into the month of November. About eight weeks later, 2016 will come to an end.
I’ve been very amazed at how quickly the year has gone by and 2016 has been quite an eventful year.
This is a good time to do a review of 2016 and start planning for the next year. I don’t believe you should wait until December to plan for the next year. It’s good to set your goals early.
Have you achieved all your writing goals for the year?
Did you complete that book? Did you event start?
Did you launch your blog? Did you post consistently?
Did you share the message that has been lingering in your heart through your articles?
What have you achieved with your writing gift this year?
I’ll tell you what I have achieved.
I’ve been able to write to inspire people to do more with their writing gift.
I’ve been able to inspire women around the world to aspire for greatness through my position as the Editor/ Content Manager of Leading Ladies Africa.
I have written articles to help startups and entrepreneurs manage their business better thanks to being a contributor for 234Finance.
I have mastered the art of creating and writing social media content. As a result, I have managed content and social media for awesome brands like Black Opal Nigeria and I was part of the content and social media team for the 22nd Nigerian Economic Summit. I am currently working with the Communications team at WIMBIZ, in preparation for their annual conference next month.
Through The Sparkle Writer’s Hub, I have created and written different types of content to help all writers to master their craft. I have also been privileged to teach a good number of writers how to monetize their writing skill. The icing on top of the cake is that those writers are now flourishing and earning income from writing.
Although it looks like I have done a lot, there is one thing I haven’t done yet.
I haven’t written my book.
This has been a goal for two years now.
I coach people through the book writing process and I have ghostwritten several books so it’s not about not knowing how to write a book or having the time to write one.
You know what’s missing? It’s that ‘eureka’ light bulb inspiration. There’s a lot for me to write about but I want to write what God wants me to write. Writing a book for writing sake isn’t my desire. I want to be led by God as I write my first book.
So let’s come back to you.
Have you achieved your writing goals?
If you haven’t what’s stopping you?
Why haven’t you written your book? Why haven’t you started your blog? Why haven’t your articles been featured on different newspapers and websites?
We have two more months left in 2016. It’s not too late to take action.
You can start today. Don’t end the year wishing you had started your blog earlier.
If you need help getting started, you know you can always get in touch with us at The Sparkle Writer’s Hub.
