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