Author Tip from Ecuador

Author Tip from Ecuador

My favorite Ecuadorian tradition is the New Year’s Eve year 2

Families and businesses create dummies called monigotes to represent all the things they want to leave behind from the previous year- regrets, bad relationships, problems, guilt, or anything negative.  These monigotes are made of old clothes or paper mache.  Some look like politicians, animals, super heroes, sports figures or cartoon characters.

At midnight on New Year’s Eve, the monigotes are set on fire in the street, fireworks flare, and a huge party with music, food, and dancing ensues. People here know the value of releasing the old doubts, fears, and problems to meet the New Year with joy, anticipation and a clean slate.

This is a great tool for authors!

Over the next 24 hours, why not take some time to list all your regrets and disappointments from 2013 on paper and burn them in your fireplace or BBQ grill?new years

Clear your slate of draining relationships, things that don’t serve you, and anything else you don’t want to include in your 2014.

Then set aside a few quiet minutes on New Year’s Day to set your intentions for how you want to feel about your life, your writing, and your business in 2014.

After you’ve set those intentions, decide what you will do differently in 2014 to achieve your goals and make your dreams come true.

If you’ve been going it alone and not making enough progress, don’t you deserve some support and structure?
