Vacation Week Special: The Writer’s Checkup

If you’re a regular to this blog, you may know that I do something different when I’m on vacation (okay, it only happened once before, but I rarely take a whole week off). This week, while I’m enjoying the Florida sun and beach, WordPress will be churning out content that I hope you find useful.

One important way that a writer improves is through self-evaluation. I don’t just mean the actual words on the page, though they’re important; I mean all the parts that go into executing a completed project. Each day this week we’ll examine one aspect of the writing package and ways to evaluate how well each of us is doing.

Once we’re done, I hope you’ll use the five areas of evaluation on a regular basis to keep improving.

Here are the five areas we’ll cover:

  1. Time Management
  2. Consistency
  3. Passion
  4. Style and Voice
  5. Goals

I invite you to comment about your own triumphs and struggles along the way—if you’re comfortable. Also, let me know what you think of this special series.

Next week the regular lineup returns.
