Each year I tend to set myself up for failure by making a New Year's Resolution. I think we all do it. Each year I resolve the same thing...to lose weight. It never works. The weight stays there and I usually end up gaining instead of losing. How on earth is that fair?? So, this year I am making a different resolution. I figure if I resolve to gain weight instead of losing weight then maybe I can trick myself and I will lose it instead. Seems to make sense to me. So, this year I resolve to gain weight. Wish me luck! :)

Okay, I'm kidding, sort of. I do resolve to do something for myself this year that I should have been doing for awhile. But, it requires that I put myself out there and get out of my comfort zone. That is not easy for me. This year I resolve to work harder on my books. I am going to really search for a publisher or at least figure out how to go about that whole thing. I am scared to death of rejection. However, I also realize that if I don't at least try, I will always wonder. That's worse than putting myself out there. So, here's hoping that by this time next year, I will be a published author. We'll see how it goes. If I become famous, you can all say you knew me when.... *smile*

Good luck Jodie! Did you know I was published in a book? Just a short story in a Chicken Soup type (adoption) book, but it was neat anyway. Best wishes with the writing. Have fun with it!
