It’s a new year! It’s an arbitrary marker, of course, but I find I like arbitrary markers. I like resolutions. I like clean slates.
(This is starting to sound like the piece of fiction I wrote for January-by-the-numbers Day One).
I’m going to Do Things in 2017. Lots of things. Well, okay. I’m going to do a reasonable number of things.
I’m going to get my 365-day streak in 4theWords, because when you do that, you get fancy wings. I’m at 50-something now. I can do that.
There’s other writing, of course: Edally and the novella thing, Patreon and all the little long-running stories here, the January By The Numbers posts (and so on and so on and so on and…)
I’m back on the weight-loss wagon, because I really want to do this. Which also means walking every day that I can stand to. T’s been looking at fountain pens (my 15-lbs goal) a lot lately, so that and my backsliding in Nov-December is really getting me geared up to do this, really do this.
Which means keeping track of everything, so hooray just starting a brand new bullet journal.
On pretty paper. With pretty pens, and banners, and all the whole shebang.
I want to get the house tidy and keep it that way. I want to actually DO things in spring for the garden.
I want to work actively and consistently on the house.
I want to take a vacation, actually go somewhere. Probably the Adirondacks.
I think it’ll be a good year. I think I’m going to try for monthly goals rather than yearly, small, reachable mobile targets.
What about you? How’s your 2017 shaping up?
