A New Year’s Resolution
I’ve never been one to make New Year’s resolutions. I suppose that’s because I’ve never wanted to be pressured into keeping them. But this year is different. Not only am I making one, I’m making it public. I figure that will sufficiently up the ante to the point where I may actually keep it.
So what am I resolving? You can find out here. (Spoiler alert: it’s writing-related, not dog-related.)
That said, I want to thank the folks at Brevity for posting my essay, an act that, in itself, gives me the courage to move forward with my resolution.
And you? Making any resolutions for 2016? There’s still time!
