I love a new year. It's a fresh new chance, you know?
Many people say the same thing every year; they say, "I'm going to travel." Or they say, "I'm going to lose weight." I say the same things every year too. I do tend to say, "I'm going to lose weight," but from there my resolutions are usually a little different from the people around me.
"I'm going to read more," because I love to read, but I rarely find time for it. "I'm going to knit more," because although I'm pretty good at it, I still can't follow a pattern to save my life, because I lose count of stitches and rows constantly. Because of this, I mostly knit little things like scarves, cowls, hats, etc. Someday I'd like to tackle a baby blanket for a friend, though I suppose it shall be rather plain.
"I'm going to write more."
Every year I say it, and every year, I fail to do it. I failed to blog, because I didn't find the time. I failed to write my first novel for most of my life, though I started countless ones, countless times. But now that I've done it? I really did write more. In one month, I wrote my first novel, and within a few short weeks, To Love A Selkie was on virtual e-book shelves at Amazon.com.
With 2013 looming before me, I still plan to write more, but this time, I'm giving myself a head start. My second novel is expected to release in February, followed by it's sequel sometime in the summer. Soon enough, this second novel will have become a series of six (or more).
In the meantime, as 2012 draws to a close, I wish everyone a Happy New Year, and good luck on your resolutions.
