Not Enough Bookshelves: Resolutions

Resolutions

I love the dead days between Christmas and New Year. Everything slows down and everyone starts making lists.  Lists of favourites of the old year and lists of resolutions for the coming one.

As a compulsive list maker, all year round, I get right into the spirit of it all. Last year though was the first time I actually made a resolution come true. I wrote my first novel. It took much longer than anticipated but I did do it.

So this year maybe I can make two of my five resolutions come true. I’m always one to aim high!

1) A lot of people have been talking about feeling less guilty in 2010 and that’s definitely something I need to work on.

2) Lose the remaining ten pounds of baby weight. This one pretty much HAS to happen by April. I’m going skiing and I still can’t do up my ski trousers and I refuse to buy a new pair.

3) Finish my second novel. The one I started for NaNoWriMo, started again at the beginning of December and started again a week ago. Enough starts I need a middle and an end by March, fingers crossed!

4) Query agents.Yikes

5) Read 50 books. In 2009 I read 66 in 2008 I read 78. The number seems to be going down. I can’t imagine why!

I hope your resolutions go well and that you have a happy, fun and safe New Years Eve celebration.
