New Year's Resolutions

First of all, I'd like to say that for the first time I've completed my most important resolution from last year. In fact, for the past five years one of my goals for the new year has been to write an entire novel. I can't believe it's taken me this long to just go out and write one, but hey, better late than never, right?


I'm still trying to figure out my resolutions for 2012, but it definitely includes writing another book. Now that I've written one, I've got the confidence to keep going and going and going. I feel like the energizer bunny, lol.


Anyway, I have a skating test on Monday. For those of you who know skating, I'm taking my Juvenile Moves, and my Pre-Juvenile Freestyle tests. I'm skating a two minute program, when I'm used to only a minute and thirty seconds. It seems like a short amount of time, but it's amazing how long two minutes feels like when you're constantly moving.


To make matters worse, I think I'm getting sick. My head feels like it's about to pop, and my throat feels like I swallowed a thorn bush. (Okay, maybe not quite that bad, but still.) So hopefully I won't lose my balance during my tests.


What are you're New Year's Resolutions?

Congrats on reaching a goal! Keep it up! The best thing about creating is that the possibilities are endless :)

My NYRes is to finish a rewrite of my NaNovel... and any encouragement to accomplish that goal is always appreciated!

Happy New Year Jess! Feel better and good luck on your skating test!

Good luck you don't need, as skill and talent have you much. But good luck anyway!

My new year's resolution is to get my daughter to work less and play more (but I doubt it will work). I'm proud of you and can't wait to read the book!

Hope you're feeling better, and the test goes well! I'm still feeling in an unresolved mood at the moment, but I would like to get my WIP revised.
