It's That Time of Year!

Reflections, rediscoveries, rejuvinations, resolutions. For many of us, these words are part of our end of the year ritual.

After all, it's that time of year!

Time to reflect on what has taken place over the past 12 months.

Time to rediscover hidden treasures from the past. Perhaps time to reorganize these treasures. Maybe we'll even find a few we no longer want but might be a real treasure to sell on Ebay or elsewhere. And it's time to box up the rest for disposal or storage.

Perhaps it's also time to rejuvinate our bodies with plans to exercise, eat right, and rest well. That might be the number one resolution for the new year.

Did we actually achieve any or all of the resolutions we made last year? It's time to find that list and check it out.

For writers, new year's resolutions are especially important. Did you have a new book published this year? Resolve to revitalize and rejuvinate sales for that book. Do you have a new book coming out in 2011? Resolve to make plans for promotion beginning right now.

After all, it's that time of year!

Time to commit to an even better year!

The New Year is always a time of hope, isn't it? Somehow, some way, we're going to do better...and sometimes we do. I especially want to improve on promoting my work.

I like your attitude that a new year is not ONLY a time to look toward new projects, but a time to renew commitments. Thanks for the reminder. :)

Thanks, Alex, Bob, and Marian for your comments. The new year is a time for reflections as well. Always so much hope at the beginning!

I should have a list of about 20 resolutions, but I'm going to mostly focus on developing a new writing habit of 500 words per day.
