Happy New Year!
I can't believe it's officially 2013!
I'm pretty excited, because this is the year that my book is going to debut.
Okay, so it's debuting in December and I basically have to wait another year. But hey, who's counting months? And days? And hours?
Now, surely you are all making New Year's Resolutions, those tasty morsels of hope and change that magically turn into green nuggets of spoiled feculence that haunt us as early as March.
Let's call them Goals.
What are my goals? They are threefold.
Physical: Try to do something un-couch potato-y at least three times a week. Eat less refined anything--sugar, flour, and eat more faceless foods, like veggies and fruit.
Mental: Be like Edna Mode, from the Incredibles: "I never look back, dahling. It distracts from the NOW." In other words, don't be overly obsessed with past mistakes and future stuff. Be here and be present (especially where family is concerned.)
Reader-ial (I know this isn't a word. Just go with it.): Try to consume a little more non-fiction. It gets the ideas flowing and charges up my smarty fact batteries.
Authorial: Keep distractions to a minimum. (Ha! I'm going to break this one in five minutes.) Promote my book as reasonably as possible without grossing myself out. Write, write, write.
There are other goals, but I'm trying not to bore you. (Podiatrial: keep toes well exfoliated. Phobial: remember that spiders are my friends, most of the time.)
What about you? What kinds of goals do you have this year?
