It’s that time again. The one where we sit down, take a sheet of paper and write out ALL THE RESOLUTIONS!
How about no? Yes, this’ll be short. My brain’s a bit fried, with another move coming, but I’ll let you in on three reasons I’ve not made any New Year’s Resolutions.
1. Not another one! – I’ve got too many goals right now. Too much going on. Too many long term plans. And I’m not about to label them just for the sake of a holiday that happens as frequently as my birthday.
2. Days aren’t reasons. – Don’t get me wrong, spending time with people is fun, and I love my friends, but a day on the calendar, especially for a writer, is just another day to make words on paper. The New Year holds no particular power over me to compel me to become better or stronger.
3. I’m time-blind. – It’s an ADHD thing. You can look it up. By the time I remember I made a resolution, it’sll be New Year’s Eve 2017! Mostly because I can go five hours without realizing a single hour has passed.
So do I have a ton of things I want to accomplish this year? Sure. I mean, I’ve started a webcomic, connected that to a Patreon, altered my habits to find ways to get more writing into my day, working towards my first novel’s publication (September, tops) and a bunch of other stuff. Including getting back on top of my physical health and setting up a training routine to accomplish an Iron Man in five years. I’ve got plenty I want to get done, but a New Year’s Resolution ain’t one.
