New Year: Write

A new year means, as with any goal/resolution, write. You must decide and see that the time is now. Don't let the nay-sayers stop you from reaching your goal. There will always be someone who disagrees with you, your goal. Write.

It's humbling to live in a country where you can part company with someone/people who brings drama, confusion, just not a good fit.

You can write about your situation, to help someone else. Writing is therapeutic. Writing can be your out-let.

Write. Look at your words after writing about a situation or problem. Help yourself understand what happened, how it happened, through writing. Let writing be your therapy.

A new year, write. Write about your past year, ways to move forward from a not-so-good year. Make notes on how you'll make improvements this year.

Write an essay, novel, poem. Embark on a writing project that you've never done before. Why? New year. It'll be a challenge to try new projects. It's motivation out of the old routine.

My book, Grave Street House, started out as notes, for example. The plot centers around how the main character handles being sexually harassed at work, and she gets to the bottom of why people are destroyed by the house on her street.

You don't know what path writing will take until you start.

Simply, write.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
