New Year Resolutions
How many times have you started a new year, made a resolution or two, and promised to keep them? Were you successful? I fall into that category, too. The difference this year, in my honest opinion, is that I really want this to happen. This is not an I-want-to-lose-weight type of resolution by an actual determination to do something in particular. What is it, you might ask?
I want to go pro.
That means no more computer tech. No more helping little old ladies troubleshoot why their computer won’t turn on. I truly want to become a professional writer, like several of my friends are. So can I do it? Well, it means an enormous amount of work. I have to become more prolific in my writing. More book releases. More consistency.
I have more adventures set for Lentari, but I’m also itching to try something new. I have a few possible stories that would make great books. If I can increase my number of titles then I can certainly give it a try.
So, can I do it? I sure as hell am gonna try!
That’s it. That’s my resolution. If I want to become a profressional writer then I need to write more. I need to release more titles each year. I need to increase my word count. Exponentially. It’ll mean a lot of work for me, but I think I can do it.
What are some of your resolutions? Anyone care to share?
You’re welcome for the recommendations. I’ve personally read each of them and can count them amongst my favorites!
I don’t know if I have one yet. Or maybe I do because every year around my birthday something will always break and we will have to get a new one.
But I just wanted to say good luck.
Ohh, I almost forgot. Thank you for introducing me to some great books at the end of the Bakkian chronicles (3)
The Amulet of Aria. They really are wonderful books!
my New Years Resolutions is to also get known out there as a poet Author and also to go on a holiday hopefully to usa and to get a job to save up for it after household costs not much really but each month i will add to the list another resolution
i only ever have one ressolution the rest are just sort of weekly goals.
but my resolution is one ive used for the past 3 years, “be a man of my word”.
i use’d to be a bit of a selfish bast**d and never kept my promises,
but i decided to try my best to stop, now if i promise to do with the exception of certain circumstances i always keep my promises.
im still not perfect i know that last year i didn’t keep 9 promises but 4 were because i was in hospital 2 were due to illness and 1 was due to injury.
Thx, Scott! I appreciate it! It means a lot of work and commitment on my part but I am totally willing & able to put in the time.
Thx for stopping by!
I stopped making resolutions years/decades ago (especially the old “im gonna watch my diet”) as i never stuck to them. Chocolate is my one vice lol. Been more successful just setting a particular goal and then working on it.
More importantly best of luck as you branch into making writing your career. Hope both success and enjoyment follow!
Ok, I’ll give you that one. We’ll go with the start of the new year caused me to create a new goal for myself. One that I plan on achieving. 🙂
Will that do?
And did you get the newsletter? Did you see the preliminary sketch for the cover?
See jeef you are not making a resolution your setting a goal there is a huge difference
I don’t make them. I do “resolutions” daily as in today I will………………… It helps me keep on track with what I need to get done. But the new years thing trying to say on day 1 of a year what you are going to be doing 6-7 months later is either setting yourself up for defeat or you think small lol
