A New Year

Well, it's 2009, and things have drastically changed for me since this time last year. I am now married, have a newborn son, and I have a job with an actual steady future. But, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Every year for the past...I dunno, bazillion it seems...I have resolved "I'm going to write a novel this year!" And yet, I have never finished one. So, this year, I'm going to start small. This year I resolve to TRY MORE. To actually work on writing a novel. If I finish, awesome. If not, I 'll know that I have tried. I'm also going to get back into shape. These last few months have played hell with my fitness. I find that I do better with someone else to help motivate me. And now that my wife is able to exercise, and is motivated to do so, we'll be able to keep each other going long enough to actually achieve our goals.

Other than that, I think things are pretty set. My interest in MMOs is starting to wain a bit now, so I'm sure I'll be able to work my writing in better. I'm also trying to get registered for classes at an online college starting next week. If it happens, I'll be taking another step closer to actually getting my degree. The only thing is, now I have to actually decide what to major in. But, that's another long and boring story.

Hey, and maybe I'll actually get some people to read this blog, and maybe leave a comment or two. That would make me feel really good... ;)

Look! A comment! :)

Congratulations to you and your wife for the birth of your son! Get that novel written! In the immortal words of that little green sage, Yoda: "Do, or do not! There is no try!" :)

You know, you're awesome at short stories. Have you thought about writing a series of short stories -- same character, different settings? Enough for a book....?
