2017 – Resolutions

Posted by

I’m a sucker for resolutions. I love making lists. I love the idea that I get to start all over again in the bright new shiny year and leave last year’s faltering steps behind. I love assessing what went right, what went wrong and what just went as usual. I love the promise of a new start.

I really love that!

I won’t bore you with all my New Year’s Resolutions – I’m picking and choosing from a long list!

  1. Write more poetry
  2. Start podcasting
  3. Set aside some dedicated time to professional reading
  4. Submit work more regularly
  5. Work in different places so I don’t feel pinned down in my office

Those aren’t bad ideas to start with – and to make all this easier, I’m cleaning my office and revamping that space. Feels good to throw out stuff, rearrange books and create a little more space.

Missing my daughter who has headed off for Glasgow – but looking forward to the photos and news from the other side of the world. (I think some of the cleaning is actually displacement activity – but at least it’s useful!)
