Resolved: These three things

They say that if you make your resolutions widely public you're more likely to keep them. Behold my official 2012 Resolutions, posted here for all to see!

1) Get physical: I will be more regularly active. At present I do nothing but sit on my butt most of the day, most days a week, and it's beginning to show. Literally.

2) Write more: I will carve out time to do more writing. I've been lazy about it and I want that to stop. Signing up for fests and exchanges here helps in that it forces me to sit down and crank out the words, but I want to will do more original writing. My online writing group is going to think I do nothing but lurk and crit other people's work if I don't get busy.

As part of this goal, I will apply to Clarion West. I've talked about this for years and it's time to take the plunge. Among the instructors for the next session are Connie Willis (THE Connie Willis, be still my heart!!), George R. R. Martin, and Chuck Palahniuk. Yowza!

3) Slow down: Perhaps as a result of regular work on top of freelance work, I have become hasty, as Treebeard would say. I find myself frequently rushing through tasks, even the pleasant ones, and increasingly impatient. I never used to be so, and I don't care for what it does to my temper and my peace of mind. So will slow down the pace of my life, in all areas. I will take time to do a given thing consciously, savor the present without constantly rushing off to the next thing.

Wish me luck!!

I always push swimming on people, partly because it is the only form of exercise I can bear to subject myself to, partly because it's awesome and partly because it is a nice full body workout.

Good luck with Clarion West! It looks lovely. I hear you on the original writing - I keep *meaning* to do it, but fanfic takes so much less effort...

There's a pool at the school right down the block from my house, maybe I'll check into it. You should think about applying to Clarion too. Because, well, you never know...
