It is January 1st, though it is almost the 2nd, and I am at my mother-in-law’s house. Here we sit in an old farmhouse with the kids aslumber. In two days I begin work again teaching 1st grade. This is an admirable job, but they children – they are so little! I like teaching reading far more than how to read, but I do my best and like my students.
But, what about the writing? Ugh. I am very tired of thinking on it and being so introspective and whatnot – but I cannot help it! Pensiveness reigns my life. Thoughts. Life. Hold.
I posted to my blog 10 times in 2011. That is terrible. 10 times? What is that? That’s not even an attempt – it’s a menace. I have drafts I didn’t post because I read them and second guessed and there will be less of that because…
RESOLVED: Post to blog every day. What’s a good minimum word count? I don’t really know, but I think at least 250, though I would prefer 1000. I don’t have the time, though, with work and whatnot. So, it will be lots of stream of consciousness.
RESOLVED: Work out EVERY DAY. This is inspired by this website here. And that is that.
RESOLVED: Start the food blog with Jesse. Jesse K. and I are going to inspire the shite out of you guys and gals when we debut our food blog. You will love it like a beautiful opposite-gendered person.
RESOLVED: Write more. I think it will be easy to write more since I barely wrote in 2011. Too much procrastination. So. Write MORE.
RESOLVED: Be happier and, in general, upbeat. Life got away from me, but I enjoy being happy and so I will be happy this year. I make a greater effort to sing, dance, play, draw, and be an artist – so more drawing and writing and creating which is what I love.
And that is that. My blog here, which I have efforted (my made up word) to be a focussed writing blog, then a writing repository, then – what? Will be my blog for everything. And if people aren’t interested in everything, well, that is far too bad for them. And the word count will help.
RESOLVED: To finish things. I want to finish at least one of the umpteen books I have first chapters for, but especially my Space Pirates epic, humor sci-fi thing and I will work to write more – which I have said. And to be positive.
And to love more. That is for my wife. Samantha may read this, you know, and I want her to know that I am mean to her sometimes and do not mean to be, but she gets caught in my grump-cross-wind and that is not fair. So, I will be a lovinger husband to my wife whom I adore and whom, without, I would certainly have perished. Or not been as happy. I wish I could show her my love more often.
And that is a post for today, which brings my count for 2012 up to 1. And that’s already 10% of 2012.
