GYWD 19: The 13th Week and 2021 in Review

Episode #19

If you aren’t a 12 Week Year follower, you might be surprised to learn that a key element of the 12 Week Year system is, in fact, a 13th week. The 13th week is dedicated to assessing the previous 12 so that you can look at what went well, what didn’t go so well, and identify lessons learned to help you shape your next 12 Week plan.

If you’ve been listening to the podcast for any time, or read the book, you’ll know that I have a low opinion of New Year’s resolutions and annual planning. That said, the turning of the year is, without question, a fantastic, maybe even a necessary, time to take stock and to reflect on your writing life. Maybe we could think of it as a 13th month? Whatever you call it, today we’re going to talk about how to conduct an annual review and I’ll share some of my own reflections on 2021 that I’m going to carry with me into 2022.
