THE START

Mark Twain once wrote, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” So often we put off till tomorrow what we want to do today. This, as you know, has a horrible way of repeating itself; day after day after day we drag our feet until we find ourselves completely unable to get started. In my experience, the key to getting started is having a clear idea of where you’re going.

For your first post in your first blog, you are responsible for writing a 250 word declaration of what you want to accomplish over the next four years, and how you are going to start making these accomplishments a reality. Don’t think in generalities: think specifics! For example: If you want to improve yourself as a writer, then post about how you are going to work on this area. How are you going to do this? Are you going to commit to writing 2000 words a week? Are you going to stay after with a teacher or spend time in the library reading other writers? Be honest with yourself and be specific! Good luck.
