The Bloom of a New Year
As the new year approaches, it’s a good time to remember the past year and plan for the future. That applies as much to your writing as to the rest of your life.
- What lessons did God teach you in the past year?
- What new things did you learn how to do?
- What unique experiences did you share with your family? Friends?
- What Bible verses touched you in a special way?
- How did you grow in your job?
- How did you grow as a parent? As a spouse?
- How did you become more effective at home?
- What kitchen disasters did you live through?
- What did you learn about relationships?
- What did you learn about forgiveness?
- What joys did you experience?
- What failures did you experience?
- Did you meet someone who has an interesting story to tell?
This list is just the beginning. What questions appear on your list? How can you turn the answers to these questions into fiction, how-to articles, parenting pieces, meditations/devotionals, features, personal experience pieces, travel articles, etc.?
As you head into the new year, glean your ideas from the past year and write.
