Resolution Checkup (Lizzie)

It's February 6. How are your New Year's resolutions coming? I'm doing okay. I spoke to a local bookstore owner about carrying The Rose and the Wand (haven't heard back yet), turned in a short story for an anthology, made several notes on a few stories, and kept up with my two jobs. I added the goal of taking voice lessons to improve my singing and get over some of my self-consciousness--and it's helping both. But ... I haven't exercised as much as I should have, nor read as much as I needed, studied French as much as I should, or written much at all (creativity is dry from lack of reading and recreation time).

While I may not be perfectly on track for this year's goals, I'm not going to get discouraged. I hope you wouldn't either. I'll keep going and accomplish whatever I can. I hope you will too!

How is your progress?


  1. New Year's resolutions? What are you talking about? Lol well one of mine, that I remember, was to write/edit more, and I've been doing that!

  2. Haha. Any goal then! It's great that you are writing and editing more.

  3. I don't do New Year's resolutions because I rarely keep up with them. But I do make monthly goals. So far, so good. :-)

  4. It sounds like you're off to a great start with your resolutions! That's so fun you're taking voice lessons :) I feel like most of my goals and resolutions have been pushed back until after my book releases next week, so thus far I've pretty much just accomplished book release stuff while keeping my family alive and fed!

  5. Wow! You’ve accomplished a lot. I’m not good with resolutions, but I did set goals and create a plan for the year - so far, so good. Hope you hear good news from the local bookstore.
