After considering three possibilities for my 2015 One Little Word, I focused in on one. Focus.
2015 will be my year of focus.
The new year brings a clean slate, and oh how I love clean. An ending. A fresh beginning. A chance to continue the progress already made. A new year where amazing things can and often happen.
2014 was a year of change. A year of believing things could change and making purposeful, positive change happen.
Now I plan to focus.
Primarily on my writing.
I’m ready. I can taste it. I want to sit at my desk and write for weeks and weeks uninterrupted. Guzzling coffee. Forgetting to eat. Totally absorbed. That’s the focus I can feel building beneath my skin.
Soon I’ll be making final-final edits on my manuscript (fingers crossed and knock-on-wood). I’m dreaming of that last mile, a completed project. Visualizing a book in my hands.
And I have other unfinished manuscripts hidden in the cloud. Short stories that need attention.
In 2015, I will focus on the craft of writing. Words I’ve yet to write. Stories untold.
I want to be present. Attentive. Mindful.
I want to absorb my surroundings, the sights and sounds that translate into words.
Sense the organic.
Listen to the voice.
And there are other things I plan to focus on in 2015. Like our yard. We have a new fence, and that’s a huge start.
Of course, I’ll still blog. But posts may be less frequent. After my daily writing.
I’m excited about 2015. Happy New Year!
