Normally, when a new year begins, I have come up with a list of resolutions. Most of my resolutions make appearances year after year, such as losing weight, finishing my latest writing project, getting such and such organized, etc. In years past, the list has been long.
This year, I’ve narrowed it down to two: “Reduce the waistline, and build up the bottom line.”
Pretty simple. Lose at least some weight — I’m tired of setting numerical goals; they only stress me — and end the year with more money set aside for emergencies and savings than I have now. I can accomplish those.
As for my writing…
Getting Hammered, the book, is doing well. I think I might set a goal of finishing one section a month. If I do that, by the end of this year, I’d have 19 completed chapters. Not bad! By then, I’m certain to have come up with new observations. Will Getting Hammered ever end? At the rate I’m going, if I ever publish it, I think new editions (“Now with even more stuff!”) will be required every so often.
Hunger and Red Sand, on the other, hand…
I’ll have to get back to you on this one, Dear Reader.
