Resolved to be Resolute

Well, we are one week away from New Year's - which means...resolution time *dun dun duuunnnn* (and yes, we are still a week away but I'll be out of town next week so I figured I'd start thinking early :D )

I'm trying to keep it simple this year. I have generally tossed my resolutions out the window by midnight of the 1st...sometimes sooner :D So for this year, I'm going pick one simple thing that I should be able to stick to. One thing that should make everything else easier to accomplish.

Use my time wisely - I fritter away a lot of time. And I will continue to fritter away lots of time. BUT I will try to do so less :) There are things I want to get done and that just isn't going to happen if I don't get on the ball.

The two main goals I have for this year are to keep up with the house, and to WRITE - even if it's a sentence a day, I want, I NEED, to write. So many things I want to accomplish but if everything stays locked up tight in my head it's not doing anyone any good...especially me. :) And both of these are more than doable if I just use the time I have wisely.

There are lots of other things I want to do....lose weight (as always), be a better mom and wife, learn a couple new languages, organize my house from top to bottom, read lots and lots, finish my cross stitching projects, and a million more things. But I'm hoping if I focus on just that one thing, everything else will follow.

What are your writerly resolutions for next year?

Great resolution, Michelle! My resolution for the year is to organize my house and get it painted. And of course, write, write, and write. I'd like to write another book, and maybe 2 if I have the time. We shall see. I gave up on the losing weight resolution a long time ago. :D :D

Ha! I don't think I've evern stuck to one resolution. But this year I think just may be different. I want to be satisfied. That sounds easy enough, but....

I stopped making resolutions a long time ago. Now I just make goals. Goals seem more doable and there's also less stigma attached. If you fail to entirely reach a goal, or to reach all your goals for the year, you still have progress to report. Resolutions have the doomed-to-fail stigma and just weigh you down.

My goals are to revise the book I finished in October and query it and to write one or two more books. There may be another goal or two in there, but those are the main ones.

Best of luck with your 2012 goals!
