All the best for 2010...any resolutions?


So it's goodbye to 2009 and time to, start afresh, write a list of resolutions and goals, then forget all about 'em by the second week in January! In a radical change of tack I'm trying the old reverse psychology this new year...
1) Drink copious amounts of alcohol.
2) Smoke more.
3) Eat more.
4) Procrastinate more.
5) Mismanage my time.
6) Treat people like shit.
7) Read less.
8) Write less.
9) Mast...
Think I'll leave that there!
It's probably best to focus on one specific goal to give yourself a chance. After some encouraging successes in 2009, my main one has to be getting my crime novel polished to perfection then published (sounds so simple, dunnit? Yeah right!).
So whatever you choose to achieve I sincerely hope you're successful.
Good luck n all the best,
Col

The flaw of commenting on these blogs...sorry, Erin, though 'Eerin' would be a good name for a horror writer...?
