New Year New Tricks?

Well, another year has come, and that probably means it is time to make resolutions and whatnot.  So, here we are, a week in, and I am thinking, probably not going to make too too many this year.

Here's why.

When you are looking at having not one but two pretty major life events in a single year (both GOOD ones, by the way), there's not much room to fit in other little goals.  But I still like to throw a little fuel on the fire, so here goes.  Most of these are writing resolutions, so I guess I could move this over to the writing blog, but whatever.

  1. Not so much a resolution, but I am going to see how many days in a row I can write "something" of fiction.  I'm at 7.
  2. I'm going to post a few more times than last year, but not sure how many more.  But more.  But still scattered around the various blogs.
  3. I'm going to play golf more than once - the number of times I managed to play in the last 2 years.
  4. I'm going to try to adjust to all of the changes from the last 6 and next 6 months as quickly as possible (and before year end)
  5. I'll keep a regular poetry schedule.  Maybe.
  6. I'll start revision on a work of fiction.  Preferably a novel-length work of fiction.
That's it.  No more promises.

Things that I also expect.  There will be times I am extremely tired, grumpy, cranky, or generally feeling like that dog's face looks up above.  I will slow down brewing any beer early in the year (probably only 1 more brew day in the near future), and HOPEFULLY will get back to brew a few batches before the end of the year.  And I will, at times, disappear from the internet for a few days.  And then return.

I don't know - that seems like a lame list, but it's a list.  So there.  If you don't like it, tell me what your resolutions are in the comments, and you can one up me.  Happy New Year.
