On Resolutions and a New Year

I’m returning to the regularly scheduled programming after a short break that feels like an eternity. Anyone else?

In the time I was away, I did a lot of things, including getting married (and the stress leading up to that event, especially for an introvert who avoids the spotlight), traveling to Belize, continuing to travel as part of my newish job and celebrating the holidays with my family. Between wedding, work and family, I don’t want to count the number of trips I’ve made back and forth from Austin to Dallas. It would just make me sad. I got back a little over a week ago, and I’m going back next week. See? I can’t talk about it.

Moving on. In the midst of all the of crazy, I also started a new writing project. It’s still in the early stages, about 10,000 words right now, but I’m hoping to reach the 50,000 words by the end of the month. Cross your crossable extremities. I’m using Scrivener for this project, and loving it, but I can help but feel I’m barely skimming the surface on all of the features. I’ll have to work on that.

So it’s the start of a new year, and I’m juggling a lot of things, including being a new wife (what!?), being a homeowner, having a newish job in a very new industry and tackling a big writing projects. And it’s also the time for resolutions. Oh, why not? I clearly have loads of time. Here goes…

1. Finish my writing project.
2. Learn more about writing and publishing.
3. Record all of the books I read throughout the year.
4. Begin renovations on the condo.
5. Learn how to keep the condo clean.
6. Cook more often, and try new recipes.
7. Be open to new friendships.

There you have it. In making this public, I’m subjecting myself to judgement and ridicule. Be kind.
