How do we improve? How do we not keep doing the same thing over and over?
As much as I talk about my School of Let’s See What Happens (from which I’m a proud diploma-carrying graduate), I have been known to make a plan or two.
Even my fiction is going from Pantsing to Plotting. Or at least a hybrid in there somewhere. Sure, there is absolute fun and creativity and value in just winging it and it can work for many of us. But I don’t see many downsides to plotting or planning or strategizing.
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

So what’s it going to be, people? How is 2018 going to be better than 2017? For me, it’s simple: a plan.
I have it my head very clearly. But I need to get it down on paper. I need clear goals, deadlines, tasks, numbers, milestones, whatever it may require.
What Gets Measured Gets Done.

I started on a written out plan while at Rappottenstein Castle. I just need to expand on it, refine it, add dates, make it real.
Oh, and then do it.
