New Year, New Resolutions

I know I've been neglecting this blog recently... well okay I've never been THAT good at keeping up with it, but this time I have an excuse, kind of.

I got a new job! Like a real, I-have-to-actually-do-work-and-not-go-on-the-internet job! And I love it. Plus I'm looking to move soon so apartment hunting has been taking up about half of my non-working time.

But that's not what this post is about. FOCUS, LISA.

My New Years Resolutions:

I vow to read at least 50 books this year (and my buddies over at WD are going to help me stay accountable for that one).

I vow to complete... as in totally complete to the best of my ability... a full, query-ready novel by August. Ideally earlier but I'm a perfectionist and Arieties has been technically finished for about 3 months and I'm still in the "I hate it" phase so we'll see where that goes.

I vow to not waste my time trying to make this blog something it isn't. This is a biggie, because I keep changing what I want this blog to be based on what I think will get readers or on what I think people are interested in and you know what? That doesn't matter. This is MY blog, gosh darnit, and I'm going to write about what I like, whether you like it or not (though I still hope you like it :) )

I vow to exercise... ehhh at least twice a week for now but I want to get up to 4 times a week of solid, hard, sweat-through-my-shirt exercise in a few months when my knees stop acting up. For now I'll settle for Wii Fit Plus (LOVE LOVE LOVE IT).

Well, that's going to be it for now, mainly because our heat is broken and I can't feel my fingers. I promise to work on this blog more. Once this month settles down I'll get into a schedule and get to work. Without a schedule I'm kind of lost and frantic and I don't like it.

Hope everyone had a happy holidays and may this year be even better than the last!


Edited: HAHAHA OKAY those asterisks up there used to be xoL, xoL is so not going to work. It's Lox backwards and while lox are delicious I can't get hungry every time I come on here. So no more xoL. Maybe just - L for now.

  1. I've neglected my blog for the past couple months, so I hear ya there. I haven't even written any resolutions yet, though I've started reading ROW80 check-ins, just to get me warmed up. And I've done some writing this week. Good luck on your goals, especially on Arieties. I'm rooting for you on it. :D

  2. Thanks Jaleh! Yeah I'm going to give ROW80 another shot this time around. We can be ROW80 buddies again lol :)
