From the President’s Corner
Happy New Year!! I hope all of you made resolutions for your writing. This month mine is to finish the draft of my latest novel and get it sent to my readers. I’ve been working on it most days. I find giving myself chapter goals or number of words really helps. Even if I don’t write as much as I want, I still work at it. And I don’t allow myself to feel guilty if I don’t make the goal every day.
While we are talking about resolutions, I thought I’d come up with a few for the Texas Mountain Trail Writers.
