    Great guest blog Louisa 🙂 I am as guilty as you for not recognising my writing achievements sometimes. I find it useful to ask myself where I was this time last year, it is amazing to see how far you can come in just a year.

      Hi, Jade. Lovely to see you here and thanks for commenting. I’ve passed it on to Louisa.

      What a great idea to reflect on the previous 12 months. I’ve since started (50K+ each for Camp NaNoWriMo and Nov’s NaNo) two novels and become a creative writing tutor, started Tuesday & yesterday, and hosted 200+ people – including yourself a few times – on my blog. I do think most evenings, “OK, what have I done today?” and shouldn’t be so hard on myself when I feel underproductive despite knowing I’ve been very busy. Jobs lists help me because as long as I can tick off one item a day, however small, I’m happy.

    This is a positive and inspirational shift in the way many of us tend to dwell / worry about daily goals and expectations. I am appreciative of the reminder and found this to be a most rejuvenating post.

    Thank you everyone for your comments and to Morgen for having me. I love to do lists! Although, when I tick off one item, my list grows by another 5 tasks! Oh the irony. I still have to remind myself to recognise my achievements-it is a gradual process of retraining my thought patterns. Best of luck to everyone with their New Year’s writing, publishing goals and celebrating your achievements!
