Writing a post about the New Year and how things will be oh so different and better is uber-cliche. Regardless, I am still going to do it.
The whole accountability and punishment thing didn’t work. It was a gimmick that I saw right through (a friend’s goading helped a bit– yep, it was you Cathy) and I have no desire to continue on that path. However, I do want to write and write a lot. I have goals, but I think the thing I need the most is a positive attitude. For some reason I am the biggest Debbie-Downer when it comes to my own writing. I think that is why I tried the whole “punish me if I don’t write” thing–not the best course of action. So now I am seeking a positive attitude and I have to use that to fight against the excuses that find me and those that I seem to seek out. If 2011 taught me anything, it is that I have to get over myself and get to work. Oooh, more cliches.
So what is the plan? Ha, what a great question that I would love to not answer. tweek tweek INITIATING ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT tweek tweek slap. That is better. Here is the answer… … … … Ah, crap. I know it involves writing.
Any suggestions will be well received.
Happy 2012, everyone.
