I’ve never really been one for New Year’s resolutions. I figure that if something is important enough for you to commit to doing then the date shouldn’t matter. But I do see the appeal of new beginnings in a new year. Especially this year.
For myriad reasons, I want to re-establish my commitment to writing regularly. Two writing challenges that I’d like to participate in during 2019, and the beginning of the new year itself, make the timing superb for a new start.
Writing is one coping mechanism that I know will be quite useful.
I know it won’t be easy. Ongoing health problems and a difficult (read: narcissistic and emotionally abusive) husband have been quite successful at derailing me and making me forget or ignore my needs.
It’s time to make some changes. Change can be a heady, exciting, and scary proposition. That’s okay; I can deal with that. I’ve been dealing with far worse for quite a while. And trust me when I say that I’m not the only one who will need to adapt.
But whatever happens, I’ll simply keep writing. After all, that’s what writers do.
