A couple of posts ago, I talked about creating a digital vision board. So, here's mine for 2014. I'm going to have it blown up poster-size and tacked on the bulletin board in my office. I'll review my progress mid-year and at the end of the year to see if making my goals visual will better keep me focused and on track. What are your writing resolutions or goals for the year? Do you have a vision board to share?

|A Vision Board|
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. We were late, late, late this year—didn't finish wrapping our presents till…Christmas morning. Well, that's one more thing on my New Year resolution list: 1) Don't put Christmas off till the last minute, along with 2) Don't wait three months between blog posts…
Speaking of which, I just heard of something called a digital vision board. Basically, it's a visual version of a New Years' resolution list. Like the latter, you make a list of goals you want to achieve for the next year — or the next five years, if you wish. Using Photoshop or Power Point, you can create a digital board of images, photographs, artwork, musings, quotes, anything that inspires you towards those goals. You can print out your board and make it into a poster that you can put up on your wall. You can also go low tech and use a poster board and old fashioned glue or tape or just pin images to a bulletin board.

Do you have a Vision Board, visual or otherwise? Let us see it. It might inspire us to create our own.
