2014 has been a mongrel of a year. (Mongrel being a good, oldfashioned, polite-ish Aussie swearword for a **** anything). So I’d really like to end it now and start again.
Here are my it’s-only-September-New-Year-resolutions:
- drastically cut down sugar. I feel better without it, but reach for it whenever I get stressed. Bah. Willpower, woman!
- cut down social media. Oh my goodness! It’s like sugar. Feel stressed? Tweet! I lose time and worse, I lose energy and enthusiasm, writing social media when I should be writing my WIP *waves hi to “Chasing Xanadu”* Remember me?
- cut down distractions. Real life (i.e. everything that interferes with my writing 😉 ) has been crazy this year. I have to get better at juggling and really, get better at being selfish. I don’t necessary agree with the sexist generalisations in this article from Overland, but I do think that selfishness wins you time (possibly because everyone ends up hating you!) Prioritising my must-do’s over other people’s might be my biggest challenge.
I want to finish three books by the end of the year *gulp* So if you see my on Twitter, talking about donuts, kick my butt. Please!
