    Every time I make a “resolution”, I fail at it soundly. So, I’ve decided no resolutions. Just going to do the best I can. To lose weight. To write more. To exercise more.

    I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂

    I agree, Darynda! That’s been my experience too. However, goals seem to motivate me. Do you think they’re different somehow? It strikes me that they just might be. A resolution seems to indicate a ‘done deal’ and implies failure if you don’t complete it all the way. A goal is more something to aim for. At least for me.

    And, oh, by the way, I know we all have things we wish to accomplish, but despite ‘no resolutions’, you are getting tons done and written these days! I’m looking forward to your release, “First Grave on the Right” the first of February, as well as the sequels!

    Hmmm. Maybe I should get rid of any and all resolutions too! *wink*

    LOL, thank you! And I think resolutions work great for so many people, I’m just not one of them. “Deadlines” work better, but even then…. *snork*

    Maybe there is a difference between “goals” because they tend to work for me more often as well. Maybe it’s the fact that a resolution is a year-long goal and I have the attention span of a gnat.

    I could be on to something. 🙂
