Resolution Time Already?

Can you believe the new year is right around the corner?  Where did the last 12 months go?  No, seriously…where did they go?  I feel like I was trying to figure out my 2015 New Year’s resolutions just a few weeks ago.  Anyway, here we go again!  Time to start thinking of what changes I would like to make in 2016.  I’ve decided to make writing a key resolution for the New Year.  Specifically though, I’m not sure what to do.  Of course I’m doing the good ol’ classics too….you know….lose weight, eat healthy, exercise, be more organized, try not to complain as much….blah, blah, blah.

So this writing one….I feel like I need to be really specific to have the best chance at success.  I was thinking of these:

  1. Write at least one blog post every week.
  2. Write a short story once a week.
  3. Read five new books a month.
  4. Turn off my inner critic.  (this one is going to be HARD)

It’s not much, but it’s a start.  Do any of you have any writing resolutions that have worked for you?  I’m always open for suggestions.
