If you're looking for a new challenge to push your writing in the coming year, then I heartily recommend the 85K 90Day Writing Challenge hosted by Julie Valerie. The Challenge (technically) runs from 1st January to 31st March every year. I say technically because there are more steps throughout the year in regards to Editing, Prepping etc. It just means if you completed the challenge and wanted continued encouragement, support and advice on the following steps in your writing journey, you can use the 85K Challenge to help.

Nothing sinks a submission faster than sending commercial work to a literary venue or sending literary work to a commercial venue. But how is a writer to determine if her or his voice is literary or commercial? And why does defining your voice matter? And what do we mean, precisely, by literary and commercial?
If you are new to writing, it can be hard to know just to plan and arrange your ideas into a well-flowing structure. One of the best ways is to learn from other writers by deconstructing their stories. I've been writing for a long time and looking back I can see how my skills have developed. I used to wish to be published at the age of 18. However, now I am really REALLY glad I didn't attempt it. I was not ready and I have seen how much better my writing has become over the years. Now I consider myself a much stronger writer* and one thing I noticed as my skills improved was how I started to react to books and movies.
