23 Questions for 2023

A new year is almost here and while I plan to spend much of these final weeks of 2022 relaxing and hanging out with friends and family. But the goal digger in me is also plotting plans for 2023. 

Near the end of the year, I always take time to ask myself a series of questions to help me set goals for the year to come. 

If you need help setting your goals for 2023, be sure to join me for Write the Vision: 2023 #GoalDigger Workshop. The workshop is set for Sunday, December 18 from 4 to 6 p.m. CT. And it’s FREE!

Here are 23 questions I’m journaling about in preparation for 2023. 


How to Get Your Writing Done – Finally

I want to help you get more writing done in 12 weeks than most people get done in 12 months. I want you to try the 12-Week Year.

I tried The 12-Week-Year for the first time last year and ever since then I’ve been hooked on the idea of ditching “annualized thinking” and focusing on setting 12-week goals instead of 12-month, or annual, goals. Even though many of the concepts discussed in the book were things I already practiced, the mindset shift was key. So, when I found out there was a 12-Week Year for Writers I was elated and excited to implement this system with the members of the See Jane Write Collective.


2022 Word of the Year

Did you have a word of the year for 2021? Have you chosen a word for 2022?

This is a practice I started nearly 10 years ago.

Back in 2013, I chose three words — joy, communion, and gratitude.

Through the years I’ve chosen words such as “magic” and “faith.”

I usually spend the first half of December choosing my focus word for the upcoming year. December is such a peculiar month for us all as we find ourselves simultaneously looking back and longing to move forward. For me, choosing a word of the year is a part of this.
