Tired of the “best of the year” lists?

Discouraged by all the apparent success of other artists?

Falling into the trap of comparing yourself and your work to others?

Turn this around! Create your OWN “The Best of My Year” list.

Write down: 

    what excited you this year about your art or writing

    what you’re grateful for as pertains to your art or writing and your goals

    what you did this year to propel your story forward and/or to propel your career forward

    what you did to invest in your art or writing

    what you did to invest in yourself

Bring it back to you and your creativity.
That’s what matters most. 
Hard to do, I know, but worth it.
You’re worth it.
(And separate from social media if you have to!)
