The End of One Chapter and the Start of the Next
It’s hard to believe, but 2017 is quickly coming to a close. As we anxiously anticipate the start of a brand new chapter in 2018, we at Dorrance wanted to take the time to thank you and encourage you to continue chasing your dreams.
First of all, we’d like to thank you for taking the time to read this blog. By doing so, you’re spending a few moments each week focused on cultivating your craft and achieving your publishing goals.
Secondly, as we finish one chapter and begin the next, we wanted to channel this gratitude in a way that we hope proves to be a source of motivation for you in 2018.
Here are three ways to find motivation to power you into the New Year:
- Gratitude is a constant source of motivation, and when you tap into this wellspring of inspiration, you’ll be surprised at the energy you feel. Take time each day to think about everything that you’re grateful for and use it to your advantage.
- Find your inspiration. As a writer, what better place to find motivation than in the written word? Make it a point each day, to find quotes that stir emotion and motivate you to take action. You’ll be surprised at how powerful this exercise can be.
- Define your why. We all have our reasons as to why we do things. When you identify your source of motivation, you can build from this momentum. So whether you write because you can or you write to leave a legacy for future generations, take the time to reflect on your why.
As another 365-page chapter is about to begin, we want to know: How are you going to maximize this time to get you one step closer to your goals?
