Do you make new year’s resolutions? I tend to think about making them, but rather than planning big changes, I like to start small.
For instance, I have gained weight lately. So…my almost-sort of- resolution is to exercise daily once we’ve got moved to the new place. I will fulfill my resolution. How do I know that? Because there are so many good and sensible reasons to do so! I believe that instead of writing out one or more resolutions for the new year, it is better to think of all the reasons why a resolution should become a reality.
Another resolution is to write everyday. Now, that’s an easier one to fulfill. If I write to one of my epals, that is writing. If I edit at DMOZ.org, that is writing. If I jot down a story idea, that is writing. So….it’s an easier one to keep. There is the novel from November to edit, and the short story collection to work on too. Since I plan to publish both this year, I had better get to it!
Whatever you hope for, for the new year, may it bring you the success and happiness you wish for most.
I want to wish all readers of this blog a very happy new year. May the best of 2016 be the worst of 2017 for you!
