Year End Review by Susan Tuttle

Christmas has passed, and the New Year has started! I love this time of year. For as fast as it seems to blow by, there’s also a sense of slowing down and surrounding yourself with family and friends. Great memories are made as we enjoy one another’s presence, look to our past year, and contemplate our future.
And that’s exactly my challenge for todayJ Writer friends, take a moment to look at the goals you set for 2016. How many did you meet? How many did you miss? And if you did miss some, were they realistic to begin with or did procrastination get the best of you? Be honest! Then readjust for this year as needed. 2017 is a brand new slate, so take what you learned from 2016 and apply it.
Most of all, don’t forget to celebrate your successes—big or small! And have a very happy New Year friendsJ
Susan L. Tuttle lives in Michigan where she’s happily married to her best friend and is a homeschooling mom of three. She’s firmly convinced that letters were meant for words, not math, and loves stringing them together into stories that inspire, encourage, and grow women into who God created them to be. Romance, laughter, and cookies are three of her favorite things, though not always in that order. You can connect with Susan at her blog, Steps, Facebook, or Twitter.


  1. Susan, I'm so thankful 2017 is a new slate! I did publish a novella but failed in editing a manuscript. It was doable- procrastination got the best of me. It's high on my 2017 goals.

  2. Hi Susan - wonderful post. I really didn't get as much accomplished in 2016 as i'd hoped but instead of beating myself up I'm looking forward to 2017 and a chance to meet some goals! Blessings and happy new year!
