I've been debating today whether I should try to do a post. I neglected getting one up and ready last week, and here I am, procrastinating again.

I'm probably one of the worst procrastinators out there. Okay, not the worst... but still... And, TMOTH is just as bad as I am, which means we're both hopeless.

Really, we can both be motivated... when we want to be... But if I were so motivated, wouldn't I have at least been trying to get my novel out the door these past few years? Wouldn't I have been doing more to raise my writing credits from just this blog and CCBR in the last few years?

Sometimes, I can really disappoint myself.

Which is why I've been thinking about my 2012 New Years Resolutions already. Actually, since before Thanksgiving. I've narrowed it down to four:

  • Lose 10 - 15 pounds. While I don't want to get down to what I was when I got married, and I'm on the upper-end of the acceptable range of BMI, I don't want to let myself get out of hand. 
  • Raise my writer profile from what it is now to the point where I'm under contract with an agent and have published short stories--and more than one or two. I'd like one for every month of the year, but that would mean I need ideas! :) 
  • Learn how to quilt (which I'm already teaching myself.)
  • Learn how to can.
I think I can do all of these things... as long as TMOTH encourages me, and I stay on track. Honestly, I think the hardest thing for me will be to lose the weight since I'm happiest sitting at a computer!

There's 19 days left in 2011... Have you accomplished your 2011 goals? What are your 2012 goals?

Until next time,

It's great to have goals! I know how you feel. I set some big goals for myself, too, and I've done pretty well with some of them.

And I'm learning to accept "failure" when those goals go unmet because of factors beyond my control :D

I wasn't brave enough to set goals for myself last year because my son's health was in turmoil.

I hear ya about those factors out of my control... much of the last 2 years has been out of my control! :)
