Back-up your electronic files–on a flashdrive or use an online service. Sometimes I email files to myself and then move those emails into folders.

Make 2012 writing career goals, starting with January.  If you’re not in northern California . . . to look for similar events or organizations that I associate with, go to Google and key in the words: events for writers  OR writers organizations . . . and the name of your city and state. ShawGuides is another resource.
