I hate making new year resolutions. Mainly because I break them. And because I have the world’s fastest changing mind. However, I do want to make a resolution for 2014. I will live up to my own writing expectations. I may not write daily, but I’ll sure write at least 3 times a week. I
I didn’t use to think of myself as a writer because I’m not terribly prolific, but it’s still my true calling, and the more I accept it, the more fulfilled I feel. Apparently, I even let off some sort of writy-fume too, Mr. Shrinky thinks of me as one, so does the family, and I even had a random stranger ask me if I was a writer when he took one look at my tat that reads: “you have to be stronger than your story”. I may not be the writer I want to be, and I may be a long way from becoming her, but that still doesn’t change what’s inside me and what fuels my life, no matter what my bread-job, as Kafka so brilliantly put it, might be. Besides, come to think about it, my writing has gotten me into so much problems that I should at least be able to consider me a writer.
In any case, that is my one and only resolution for 2014. I wanted to enter the Daily Post 2014 challenge, but I think it’s still too soon for that, so maybe I’ll enter the Weekly Post one, I think I can manage that and a bit more even.
I still have one post under my sleeve for 2013 so I won’t be sending y’all wishes and that, but I do want to thank you for sticking with me for yet another year, you guys rock!!
