Archive for January, 2017

So, last year at about this same time, I posted this.

And yet, here I am again, ready to make the same promise one year later.

Like promises, New Year’s resolutions must indeed be made to be broken.

But I’m hoping not to break this one this time.  Because the difference this time, I believe, is that I feel more of a “need” to finish the book this year.  I’ve put it off far too long already (not that anyone besides me and a very select group of extraordinarily supportive and loyal friends is even aware).

Lately, I’ve been feeling more of an urgency to complete the book.  For me.  To prove to myself that I can do it.

And that’s what I think has been missing from my previous attempts at finishing the book.

I need to do this.  Selfishly, for myself this time.

Over the past few years, I’ve experienced more “incompleteness” across several facets of my life than I’d been previously accustomed to.  The ends of too many things over which I had little or no control.

But this book is one thing over which I have complete control.

And up until now, I’ve surrendered that control to all of the other obligations in my life that sometimes get in the way and drain my motivation or distract me from it.

So I hope to refer to this post often as a reminder of my resolve in the hopes that this year will be the year that I complete this book to prove to myself that I am still indeed capable of such a thing.

Wish me luck.
