Resolutions, that is. Now that the new year’s rolled around and everyone’s swapping 2011 calendars out for shiny new ones, most people are also working toward personal goals.
That’s right. The New Year’s Resolutions are upon us. A whole nother year of opportunities. One of mine is to blog consistently and on schedule this year: Thursdays and Sundays. That means no more long, unannounced blogging vacations—sorry about that, but I needed to focus on rewrites. I’ll be visiting your blogs more regularly, too. Scout’s honor.
Realistically, I know a ton of people have a ton of resolutions that never pan out. And that I’m usually one of those people. But that doesn’t keep me from setting them, because A) it’s always nice to have something to work toward and B) I’m always up for a good laugh.
And like countless other writers, I’ve got some writing-oriented goals in mind. I figure you probably do, too, so here’s a quote from the Walt Disney to keep us motivated and inspired:
“Get a good idea and stay with it. Dog it, and work at it until it’s done right.”
So even if you quit your diet, don’t succeed with your plans for world domination, or fail on the whole “be a better person” concept, remember—stick with your writing resolutions as best you can. Go all Walt Disney on those things.
Any writing resolutions you’d like to share? Looking back at 2011, how’d similar resolutions work out for you last year?
