Who doesn't love a good list.
Even better, who doesn't love a good end of year list: life hacks and lessons learned; things done, things discarded, and those yet to do.
Here are my 10 wriitng(ish) things on a list
1 Do the thing you really don't want to do first
2 Reading for its own sake (not for learning, not for editing, not for work) is good
3 Lockdown is a great leveller and has produced the best in the writing community
4 Sophie Hannah's gnocchi method is a real thing and suits perfectly the way I write
5 NanoWriMo is also a thing - that doesn't. (Still works though - I did 55000 words)
6 I'm the world's longest emerging writer. Will someone please give me a final shove?
7 Tittynope and tarradiddle are not just brilliant words; they're ones I can use daily
8 I need to care far less about external validation
9 'BEING - Doing - Having' is a happier place to be than 'Doing - Having - BEING'
10 After everything, the glass is still half full.
Happy New Year. Find the happy, find the hope, be safe.
