Happy New Year

It is the beginning of the new year and many of us welcome the new year with resolutions of all the things that we want to accomplish in the next 365 days. I have never been a fan of resolutions mostly because I don’t feel like I have anything to resolve and lastly because by the time February rolls around most of us have already forgotten about those resolutions.

I instead like to use the start of a new year to set goals, to make a list of everything that I would like to accomplish with specific deadlines. For me, goals are more realistic and when I set a goal I find that I am more likely to accomplish it. For the past few years I have been very specific about the things that I wanted to accomplish throughout the year and as I reflect on the goals that I set for myself I am pleased to know that I have accomplished each and every one.

For 2014 I am committing more time and dedication not only to my writing, but to getting my writing out into the literary world on a grander scale. I will be submitting to literary journals, applying to residencies, marketing and promoting my work in every outlet that I can. 2014 will be the year that I get discovered by some huge media/publishing house because my work should and needs to be read on an international level. One thing that I have learned is that if you set an intention, believe in it wholeheartedly, and work your ass off the Universe opens doors for you that you never knew existed. I am putting it out into the Universe today January 1, 2014. This time next year I can say “I told you so”.

I encourage you all to make a list of goals, set deadlines, and then do whatever you have to do to accomplish them. Those who work hard always reap the benefits. I wish you all a very healthy and prosperous New Year and may 2014 bring you all that you desire.
