Very true, Carol. For the first decade of my writing on this blog, I was not writing for anyone except myself, not trying to ‘succeed’ at anything. As a result, I kept writing and publishing (and failing and growing) as a writer. One of my big goals for 2017 is to develop habits that help me continue growing, to move past the plateau in growth that I feel I’ve hit.

Nice to see a comment from you! 🙂
