There are so many fantastic webinars and blog posts this time of year, about planning and thinking positively. I’ve enjoyed them all and in the spirit of that planning, I made my vision board yesterday.
What’s the purpose of the vision board?
Two things, both of which retrain the brain for success:
- Subliminal Messaging
So I used Adobe Spark to make visual affirmations. As you can see, I kept it simple.
Doing NaNoWriMo in November made something possible that I had never considered before, which is increasing writing volume. I took a leap, and then did the work. The end result is that I got faster and I hit my word count goals.
Even after the magical deadline of Nov. 30th passed, I now had incentive to finish what I had started. So yesterday, I did that. 47 scenes and just under 60k words, I now have a shitty first draft. Parts of it are horrifying but also, parts of it make me happy because I was writing and I love that. So 2017 is about doing what I love and I hope you do the same.
