You see, the resolutions usually became WOOSED-OUT, LOSER, CLAPTRAP.

JCK used to be fond of making BIG, BOLD, NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS. Kind of like BOLD, BREATHLESS, LOVE...but, not so much. You see, the resolutions usually became WOOSED-OUT, LOSER, CLAPTRAP. In other words, the resolutions were no sooner made than they tanked. So, for the last several years JCK just threw another whiskey back on New Year's Eve and hoped for the best.

This year...JCK wants to shake it up a little. Challenge herself. It's been a good year overall. She's been writing regularly, but best of all has fallen in the lap of goodness with the amazing blogging community of daring do writers. And she's been lap dancing ever since. Because it feels good. Of course, it is all sticky yumminess when people like what she writes, but the best thing is that she's just doing it for herself...writing. It's something she's wanted to do for a long, long time and strangely enough...it has never been part of her New Year's resolutions. She thanks all of you for your encouragement and getting her ass off the couch of dissed dreams.

So...JCK is making 2 solid resolutions. They will challenge her greatly.


  1. To get fit & feel healthier: exercising regularly will be a part of her life once again.


  2. To submit a piece that she's written: a poem, an article, anything- a chapter (that's reaching, but it's good to reach, no?) 12 times in 2009. That's once a month. Submitting for publication.

JCK is holding herself to these 2 resolutions...

At this time next year she will have stronger arms, legs, and sit taller in her office chair due to her buttocks being less flat and higher.

At this time next year she will have something published besides her blog, or ...at least 12 rejection slips. Because rejection means an effort has been put forth - a risk taken. JCK needs to take risks. She's getting a little too comfy.

Here's to 2009! May you make resolutions that seem just out of your reach...

Happy New Year!


Note: Did you think that JCK was going to give up her caffeine, whiskey or chocolate? Naaaaa....

Hooray! 12 submissions! Do it!

Me, I need to create 12 things TO submit, first! But that's a good goal.

Happy New Year and best of luck on these resolutions. I have none; can't commit, don't like to! I'm throwing back another drink and hoping for the best!

Madge said...

Yep, giving up whiskey and chocolate would definately end up in the loser claptrap pile. but I like the 12 submissions. JCK, published writer in 2009! yeah!

Jen said...

I love big, bold resolutions! Especially yours. I really hope that you have something published, but as you said, just putting yourself out there is an accomplishment. I would love to say that you have inspired me to do the same, but I know I would fail at that, since I can't even seem to find time to WRITE lately! I did make a resolution, but nothing so grand and impressive. Good for you!!

Manic Mommy said...

I applaud your 12 submissions. I do not see 12 rejection slips in your future.

Happy New Year, Jennifer!

I am not writing resolutions, per se, but my goals are the same.

Here's to getting out of our comfort zones.

Have you considered fiction? Something based on reality, of course, with names changed to protect the innocent. I would love to read a story with your humor. Excellent, inspiring goals!

You are awesome. That's all.

Ginaagain said...

Awesome and inspiring resolutions!

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

You know we will all be here asking about the submissions, so you will have to do it! Can't wait to hear all about it and read more of your lovely writing.
Happy New Year.

This is why I heartcha. Mine? Be more positive. It could go either way. :)

Angeline said...

I've stop having new year resolutions for years now... cos' they are never done...*laugh*

hmmm...somehow, I think your first resolution isn't necessary, since chasing Boy and Girl around the house, is almost equivalent to those usual workouts *laugh*

Caffeine, whiskey and chocolate are business expenses essential to the writing process. ANd the recovery process inherent in any fitness program.
