Hello, my lovelies. Long time, no see! Hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas.
I’m making my New Year’s resolution early this year and vow to give it my best shot for as long as possible. I’m making this public announcement so I’ll feel liable if I don’t follow-through. And, if I’m really brave, I’ll even post my daily word count on Twitter and Facebook, just to keep me honest.
From this day forward, I will write at least 600 words every weekday, no matter if distractions come my way, or if I’m feeling ill, or if the words aren’t flowing freely. I’ve allowed myself to grow lazy. It stops. Now. Any amount of writing is better than no writing at all.
I need to wipe off the dust and finish the projects I’ve started.
I need to stop feeling sorry for myself and keep moving forward, even if I take the occasional step back.
I need to forget about Ellora’s Cave and the sad predicament I’ve found myself stuck in.
I need to forget about the wasted time of the past two years and all the negativity they brought with them.
I will make this happen.
I will remember why I started writing in the first place…and why I love it.
I will remember that I’m not a quitter and no one can keep this statement true, but me.
I will thank my husband more often for working so hard, every day, and for giving me the opportunity to follow my dream.
I will not pick up a book to read before I’ve completed my daily word count, regardless of how tempting I know it will be. Reading will be my reward.
I will not ignore my muse any longer. She’s chomping at the bit and needs my constant attention and adoration for her to survive and flourish. Without it, she will jump ship and leave me stranded with regrets and a bad taste in my mouth.
The bad-arse PT is back–out of hibernation–and she’s taking no prisoners. We aren’t in Kansas anymore, Toto.
2016…you will be my bitch, and you’ll like it!
Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? Care to share?
