How’s 2013 Working for You?

That’s not a typo. We do have less than 2 days left of 2013. Still time to wrap up and reflect (I’ll be doing some of that with you all, soon). 

This post will be one of the last ones of the year here at Fiction and Copy Decoded, which got me thinking…

Let me ask you something: could we do this “look inward, reflect, and make plans” thing every month, heck, maybe even every day? Sure.

You can call it a to-do list, goals, vision board, aspirations, resolutions, and a lot of other things.

I’m guilty of fast-forwarding through boring things, wondering what’s on the other side (more on that tomorrow). Shouldn’t life be exciting, and fulfilling?


And if it’s not, change what you can change. Do your best.

On the other hand, not everything in life can be at breakneck speed. Going from 0-80 years in seconds or minutes doesn’t sound good to me. How about you?

Don’t fast-forward. Be yourself, where you are. So much of writing is about balance—and life itself is no exception. We have to live out today—but if we don’t plan for tomorrow to some extent, we’ll be going nowhere fast (do people still use that one?)

It’s never too late for change—unless you’re dead. Which, if you’re reading this, you’re not.

Unless science leaped ahead already.

Until next time,
