Recently, an author I know posted a New Years resolution to find the joy in writing, again. I totally got what she meant. Editorial letters, deadlines, and sales numbers can dim a person's happiness.
I thought about stealing her resolution, except I have been enjoying writing a lot lately. So I started a new list:
1. Worry less about editorial letters, deadlines, and numbers.
And the list goes on. But none of these constitute New Years resolutions. They are permanent ongoing goals. I needed something new, something attainable. So here goes … (drumroll) … I resolve to brush my teeth twice a day.
And stop lying to my hygienist.
Happy New Year!
