My New Yearâ€™s resolution this year is much as it is every year: I resolve not to make any New Years resolutions!
Iâ€™m happy to see the new year arrive. Itâ€™s a fresh start, of sorts. But I donâ€™t plan to do things much differently this year from last.
I do have a lot to accomplish this year, though, with all the writing and promotion I aspire–no, intend!–to do in 2013.
I intend to meet all deadlines. I intend to learn and implement as many ways as possible to let people know about my published work–self promotion has become an integral part of my life! I intend to work on some creative directions that may not fit the mold of what Iâ€™ve already been writing. I also intend to flesh out lots of fun new ideas for some of the genres Iâ€™ve been writing in.
Hey–did I just contradict myself? Maybe intentions arenâ€™t so different from resolutions.
One thingâ€™s for sure. Iâ€™m resolved to attend as many OCC meetings as possible, since interacting with my friends there helps to inspire me to continue. Plus, itâ€™s fun.
So, Happy New Year to you–and may you accomplish all your resolutions or intentions!
