I've never believed any of that and I still don't. Because, to me, you should do or do not. There is no try. (thank you Yoda) Why only half-ass something when you could do, have the ability to, and the desire to do it all the way?
So what I want to do at this time is to look at all the posts up to this point as a first draft. One of the kind that other writers say they write.
I half-assed it. I had the idea of what I wanted. I had the ability to realize what I wanted, but no desire to see it done. In all honesty, I still don't have the desire to write the posts.
However, what I do have is the love of writing, the desire to see my name on a book in a bookstore and see people picking it up and reading the dust jacket. I have the desire to give them more than what is just there inside the pages of the book they are holding, or the sequel that will be out soon enough.
I talked about desire a lot last year. I didn't set out to do so, and yet I did. Perhaps that was a hint to myself. I don't know. What I do know is that now, I will be (at least attempting) to keep to a schedule of posts.
No, it's a bit late to post a list of New Year's Resolutions. I had thought about it but, now, it's just a bit late. However, one of those resolutions did concern this blog and my desire--there's that word again--to keep it going. And that is to be accomplished by making at least 2 posts per month. Baby steps, baby steps.
So, 2 posts. Here's my first for January. What will be the next one? I have no idea.
What do you want to do in this new year? How are you planning on accomplishing it? I have some more plans for what I want to do in 2014. Keep watching this space, I may just share them with you!
