2016 looks to be a crucial year ahead. On this first day, many of us have resolutions to make or break depending on your motivations. I started my contemplation of possible things I could do better, and bad habits to break, scientifically. No, not really, but didn’t that sound impressive? Bad habits… I looked at mine, and then took a page from Dr. Phil and asked “What do I get out of them?” Enjoyment. So are they bad habits if they bring about so much fun? So I’ll not be breaking any bad habits this year. How about you? At Bliss cottage we have more goals than habits in our resolutions.
Alexie Aaron resolves not to take bad reviews personally. The box of voodoo dolls has been empty for a while, so I may get a few months down the road on this one.
The Beta Reader resolves to work on losing weight and taking control of his health.
The Red Pen vows to finish what she starts, and to improve her professional and artistic skills.
And the Webguy: “To not let my charm overshadow Alexie’s brilliance.”
Murphy, who’d been looking over my shoulder as I typed the next book, is pretty happy with me right now. To tell you his resolution would be a spoiler, so we’ll just keep that to ourselves. The Beta Reader gave Murphy and I a new Velvicut timber axe this year for Christmas. I love it as it tends to keep the vermin, editors and web guys at a respectful distance. I’m now prepared for the Zombie apocalypse. Are you?
***Aaron the Webguy's bonus contribution to Alexie post! Yes, I really did say my resolution was that when Alexie asked and she decided to run with it. Hehe. Oh, and sick with a cold didn't stop me from recording the only part of Auld Lang Syne I could remember so I thought I would post it for you all!***
