New Year's Resolution Check-Up!

Today is January 31st... we are one month into 2011. How has this new year been treating you? Home life's been nice, made some advancements at work/school? That's great.

So... how about that New Year's Resolution?

What resolution, you say?

You made one. You and I both know it. What I want to know is, are you keeping it?

I've never made a resolution before. I'm a regular goal-setter, especially when it comes to writing, but 2011 is the first year in which I made an active decision to try to better my life. My resolution was to read at least one book per week, because it really pisses me off when I don't make time to read and end up working on the same book for weeks.

And... I've kept it. So far I've read 6 and I'm working on number 7. I'm also not going to stop myself from putting a book down when it doesn't interest me, and I've done that once. I feel really good! It feels like I'm zipping through my TBR pile, and you know what that means? I can add more amazing books to it. Cue Valley Girl accent: OMG Book shopping!!!!!!!

Comment and tell me about your resolution's status!


  1. I truly didn't set any. That's mostly because I suck at keeping them ...

  2. Set a goal to complete my WIP. Right now I'm in "one Chapter a week" territory. So far? Four Chapters. Right on schedule!

    My other goal was to have a baby, lol. Considering I was already pregnant when I made it, that one's going pretty well :D

  3. Martinelli Gold, LOL! Congrats on both of those!

    EJW: At least you know yourself well enough not to make any resolutions! :P

  4. im also doin pretty good at the reading challenge -- ive already read 11 :D but then again, im not writing at all, so that deff speeds things up!
