The View from the Patio

Not good for a writer who sits all day. We’ll when writing anyway. Believe me, if I could figure out how to do the laundry and other household work while sitting on my butt, I would. But since that can’t be done, and despite the work put into housework, it isn’t enough to keep me fit and trim.
Therefore, the reason for my new policy. It’s all part of the do what I want when I want mantra. This year, health comes first!
Writing comes second. Mainly because I’ve pushed everything aside to write. I’ve done marathon sessions of 18 to 48 hours solely focused on the page. And it’s too much. If I’d have done that with my health and exercise, I’d be the healthiest person in the world. Okay, I exaggerate, but you know what I mean.
I will still pursue some marketing ideas. I’m constantly reading the latest on that, but damn, I’m not throwing money at it anymore. I may be wrong, but all I want to do is finish book five and get it on Amazon. Then I want to re-release the first three books, in an abridged form. And I have a great idea for a new novel set here in Myrtle Beach. I also want to submit some short stories to paying markets.
There you have it, the full scope of my New Year’s Resolutions. Are you still pursuing yours?
Will we succeed and make it to the 31st?
Or revert to old habits!
My money is on new habits! How about you?
But now, I owe you an update on the 31st
