New Year's Resolutions

2011 came in with a bang. First, from fireworks, then from firearms, and finally thunder. Auspicious? To paraphrase a blessing from author Laura Anne Gilman: "May the best day of 2010 be the worst of 2011." It's definitely time for some changes.

At one point, my resolution was not to make any resolutions. Last year, I decided I wasn't going to accomplish anything if I didn't set some goals.

Here they were followed by my comments in parenthesis:

• Read 75 books (81)
• Get down four sizes (1 down and I'll set a different goal this year regarding weight and health)
• Get three books done and submitted (I edited Blood twice and won at NaNo, plus I have a magazine article and three short stories accepted this year. Not quite what I had planned, but I am well pleased)

So, what are my goals for this year? I'm still formulating based on what I managed to do last year.

Stay tuned.


  1. Wonderful, Becky! It's great to see what you accomplished through intentional living.

  2. YAY! Blogs are my favorite! I'm curious to see what your goals are this year. I'm still formulating a plan, hopefully to help me stick to and accomplish more.
