One powerful habit you can develop this year is turning complaints into action.

We’re now at the 25% mark of 2023. What’s going wrong with your writing this year?

Do you lack time to write? Do you need more ideas or a comfy chair? Do you want more reviews for your self-published book or more sales? Do you need encouragement, validation, accountability, or critiques?

Move away from negative thinking and focus instead on what needs to be done.

It takes courage to take action. It might be hard to leave your spouse in front of the television one or two nights a week, so that you can have time to write. For the introverted, asking for critiques or joining a writing group forces us out of our comfort zones.

In the end, though, it will be worth it.

For today, pick one creative complaint and brainstorm what actions would fix it. Commit to making this happen.
