We did it. We survived another year and have made it to this (rather arbitrary) day we call the first day of the new year. Really any day would have done for it, so long as we all agree that it’s the first day. So there you have it, we’ve agreed that it’s a new year. We’ve also agreed to call this year 2013. We’re off to a good start.
Tradition tells us that this is the time of year to lay out our goals – resolutions – for how we will make ourselves better in the coming year. Tradition also tells us that those goals should be something like “lose weight”, “start jogging” or “save money”. Tradition also tells us that we will have given up on these goals by the third week of January. I’m going to skip those and move straight to the goals my heart is really in.
1) I will set a writing schedule and stick to it
2) I will write, edit and send out stories to be published
3) I will cuddle my cats and husband
4) I will research how and when to self publish
5) I will read any contracts that come my way
6) I will make time to read every day
7) I will have fun
That should be enough to keep me going for a whole year. With any luck by this time next year I’ll have advanced my career to the next level. How about you? What are you really going to do this year and what do you dream?
