My 3 Words for 2015

I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. They are too easy to break.

And what’s the point of it if it is not something I am going to be able to uphold?

Instead, I take a page from Chris Brogan each year, and use 3 words to frame what I want my year to be. Here are my 3 words for 2015.

Recently I have been writing fiction more, and that has made me happy. I need to continue to do that.

I also started a series of blog posts posting flash fiction on Fridays. I would like to get back to that.

In addition, I have plans for other forms of writing, mostly blogs. I took quite a lot of time off from blogging in 2014, and I want to do more of it, but in a more targeted manner.

Finish

In 2013 and 2014, I participated in NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. That has left me with two extremely rough drafts for separate novels.

And there are certainly other projects, ones that are just inklings now, that I would like to see completed.

This word serves as a reminder to me that I need to complete what I start.

New

2015 is a year of new for me. New projects, new experiences, new times. It’s all set for me to reach in and have

This is a reminder that I need to step out of my comfort zone and do new things to find success in the year.
