One More Realization from my Writing Goals Review

5. I need to streamline things more and really invest 100% in fewer things.

That one is kind of painful. I always want to do more, more, more. But I thrive on systems. I get better with regular practice. I want to be excellent at what I do. I feel like it’s better to do a few things excellently than many things half-a*!ed. But it’s still really hard to figure out which creative endeavors I need to just let go of…for now, anyway. Back to thinking.

    Yes, I very much agree! So many fascinating things to pick and choose from. And yet, to flower, we need to focus. Can you tell me a bit about your mentoring work?

    • Hi Micki–Lisa Bullard and I (both longtime working children’s writers) offer critiquing and writer coaching on an hourly basis through Mentors for Rent. You can read more about it at to see if it might be something you’d be interested in. Thanks for asking. Love the flower analogy, because it reminds me of how overcrowding ruins a garden with too many plants and not enough sun, soil, etc.
