Write Your Year

Reflect, Set Intentions, & Chart a Course for Your Writing Life

Writers & Creatives,

Ditch those endless lists of things you'll write or finally submit... someday...

There's a better way:

Reflect, set intentions, and chart an (intuitive & strategic) course for your writing life using the step-by-step process outlined in the Write Your Year Workbook.

As you complete each of the 10 worksheets inside you'll feel:
* Inspired by what you've already accomplished,

* Clear on what you want to achieve moving forward based on your personal goals (not FOMO),

* Confident that you have the tools and the plan to: Make. It. Happen!

You can keep feeling scattered or obligated to do *all the things.*


You can take some time for yourself and, with some guidance, finally get super clear on how you want your writing life to look and what concrete steps you can take in the next 12 months to get you closer to that life.

But you don't have to take my word for it...

"Fifteen years ago, I embarked on my writing journey, starting with flash fiction and short stories that eventually bloomed into full-length novels. My mind teemed with creative projects, and I needed a tool to keep me on course. That's when I discovered Li Yun's 'Writing Your 2019 into Existence.' With its planning calendar, I charted my goals, priorities, and intentions. By year's end, I had several accomplishments. I still go through this process three years later. Making and sticking to a roadmap, I believe, led to a publishing contract. My first novel, THE GARDEN OF SECOND CHANCES, debuted in 2023, and my next book is scheduled for 2024."

Mona Alvarado Frazier
Author of The Garden of Second Chances and A Bridge Home (forthcoming)

What others have to say...

"Reflecting on the past year helped me realize how much I accomplished. Then the focus on setting up intentions for the next year made me realize how much I can do this year."
"I feel more confident having plotted things out, validated, and flexible but intentioned. I’ve already crossed out obligations in my calendar in favor of more writing time. And it felt so generous to center these around quarterly celebration."
"I absolutely loved the holistic approach to goal-setting in the workshop! Up until that point, I had only ever set career goals or your typical New Year's Resolution type goals, but Li Yun helped us to set goals in all areas of our lives—marriage, family, travel, writing, and, of course, career—and that made all the difference in the world since the overarching goal for me is always to integrate my work into my life, into my dreams. A beautiful experience!"
