    Happy New Year! How will we use this new year?

    Writing a page a day all year gives you a decent length novel.

    Joining a private critique group in your genre (I've joined a
    women's fiction critique group to help me with my novel) is a
    helpful tool.

Taking a writing course, whether online or in person is a way to refresh the well.

But, also, read, read, read. Now that winter is here and it's better to curl up by the fire
than go out, work on that stack of books you've been waiting to read.

Above all, write.
