Broken Resolutions and Revolving Excuses

Note: I will start Marketing tips again after the first of the year. I'm on vacation! :)

Every year, I make a list of New Year's Resolutions.

Resolutions I plan on keeping.

Resolutions I usually end up breaking (within the first 30-60 days.)

This year, I decided to make a list of all the resolutions I've broken in the past just to own up. Of course, these will all roll-over automatically.

1. Loose the rest (10 lbs) of my "baby weight" (I don't care what anyone says. It's baby weight at least until your little one is 13. Mine is 18 months so I have some time)

2. Stop eating Peanut MMs (What can I say, I'm nuts for them)

3. Work out more. (Should not be too hard. I figure - 1 is more than 0)

4. Get an Agent and get published. (I'm trying! Guess there is no where to go but up, right?)

5. Make money (Unfortunately, kinda dependent on #4.)

6. Make more time for writing. (what can I say, I am a sucker for my kids, my hubby, my T.V., and reading. Ugh)

7. Go Green (Maybe the word is "Greener". I'm a light lime already but I'm aiming for more a darker shade - maybe evergreen.)

8. Make more friends. (Hopefully Blogger Buddies count?)

9. Saving Money (Impossible without #4 unless I stay out of bookstores and Target! )

10. Have more patience. (I'm getting impatient with this one.)

11. Keep in touch with Friends (Golly, I hope Facebook and Twitter count?)

12. Go to more Writers Conferences (Sigh! Again dependant on #4 and #5, all whilst ignoring #9)

13. Give back to other writers. (Does a Marketing blog count?)

More to Come.....

Wow! I agree. What a clever idea! Very original and funny. I'd be shocked if that one didn't land you an agent!

I think most of us have a hefty pile of broken and bent resolutions. I know I do. Hopefully we can "fix" a few this year!

Happy New Year's!

Of course the marketing blog counts! I'd be interested to hear how those resolutions are going. My only resolution was to stop making resolutions that I'm not going to keep. I've done a great job so far. :)

I almost didn't read this post because I DO NOT DO RESOLUTIONS! But your number 13 stopped me--OF COURSE, your marketing blog counts as giving back to other writers. Makes me think about what else I can do on that score...
