New Year's Resolutions...Just Say No.

It's an old tradition to make new year's resolutions. I hate it. They are doomed to fail. I like to set goals through out the year but in the past when making resolutions at this time (usually drunk and laughing hysterically near midnight), I have never had much luck making them stick.

So I say, don't make resolutions...but do set goals for yourself.

One goal that I would like to set is to lose the five pounds I gained eating my way through Christmas. I totally blame my mother for this.

Another is finishing the editing process on my current wip, and finding my dream agent this year. Aren't they all dream agents?

What goals are you setting for the year?

May your New Years be a safe and happy one!!!


  1. LOL my New Year's Resolutions (Goals) are on my blog in the right hand margin :-)

  2. Too funny! Yes goals are a better idea.

  3. Well, I don't do NYR's either, but I did make a few resolutions late last year, and in the spirit I put them up on my blog today.

    I have a really hard time keepign resolutions, but I have a new trick now. Accountability. Make a list of reasonable requirements and if you miss a requirement pay a fine to someone.


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
