Seems everyone around me is talking about making resolutions. Well, I wish them good luck. I for one have been basically surviving this past year, and in survival mode you don’t have a lot of energy for thinking about making resolutions. You are just trying to hold on day after day. I pray hubby will find a job this year and things can go back to “normal” in all areas of our life.
I have met the New Year with no excitement, no joy. It’s just another day.
One thing I do have to look forward to is finishing my novel. I pretty well took a break from it in December with everything that was going on then. I haven’t had much motivation to get back into it yet, I’m still recovering from Christmas. But I am setting a goal that next week I really crack down and work on it. I need to rewrite the opening pages because I started off in third person and then switched to first person. I already have a friend going over it with a fine tooth comb as far as grammar and punctuation. She has had a career in journalism so that is right up her alley. I have another friend already set up to read it critically as far as plot, etc. I do need to line up at least two more people. I like to have a variety, because then I think I get a more accurate report.
So, here I am trying to get my butt in gear. I really want to get that proof, and maybe even get it published this year. That would do a lot to boost my spirits.
Well, off to stir my chili 🙂
