|Dream Big for 2014. (Sunset over Pensacola Bay.)|
Every New Year I make a mental list of New Year's Resolutions and then, as the year proceeds, I turn around and forget those resolutions one by one.
So why should 2014 be any different? Well, this New Year I'm going to write down some of those resolutions in my blog for the world to see and, hopefully, for me to remember.
Of course, it's not just about remembering those profound resolutions, it's about the doing too. Yesireee, it's the doing that's the hardest part, for sure.
So here goes, my List of New Year's Resolutions for 2014:
1) Write, write and write some more. (I can't be a writer if I don't write. Duh!)
2) Think good thoughts. (My mom says if I have good thoughts then I won't ever have any medical problems. I'm hoping it applies to writing too and I won't have any writing problems?)
3) Write every single day even if I delete it all the next day. (Best to delete the not-so-good writing of the day before so no ones sees it. Just sayin' ...)
4) Dream Big and then follow it up with some hard work. (Like writing my butt off.)
5) Eat, sleep and be merry. (Hey, it sounds good. Cheers!)
6) Finish all those zillions of short stories, novellas and novels pining away in my laptop. (Well, maybe not all of them, but at least a few.)
7) Publish more books in 2014. (More is better, so they say.)
8) Spend less time on Twitter. (This is a hard one. I happen to love Twitter.)
9) Read for inspiration. (Oh, this is an easy one. I always read, lots and lots of books.)
10) Keep the Faith. (I am a writer. I know how to write. I am going to write. Hip hip hooray!)
Now I have to admit these New Year's Resolutions are pretty lame, but if I follow them I will get some writing done and some of my works-in-progress finished and out there for my readers to enjoy.
In the meantime, wishin' y'all a very wonderful, awesome and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! May your New Year be filled with peace, prosperity and lots and lots of books.
