#SoCS Jan. 01 2022 – Resolve

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “resolve.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

When I first read this I thought ‘Here we go again… resolutions…’, and I don’t really make them. Not with any integrity, anyway. (I’m being honest, here!)

Many a year has gone by where I have resolved to do things, lose weight, write this, give up that… And every year, I found myself making the same resolutions.

The last few years, I gave myself a word for the year, which I guess, could tie into the traditional resolutions, but this means a more holistic approach to reaching the end goal, because that word has to encompass your life.

But, one way or another I do resolve to finish this WIP draft, this year, (hopefully sooner!) and I shan’t promise it, but I hope to get stuck in to book 3 too. Oh, and finish that novella I was writing, as well.

A writer’s resolve.

Always strong, but sometimes not always something we can adhere to, especially when life gets in the way!

A truly rambling SoCS post, there, for you!

    It’s the time when we all put goals in front of us, and resolve to make whatever changes in our lives that we feel are beneficial for us…good luck to you – I think you’ll achieve your goals and so much more in 2022~

    Resolutions? Ha…Stick close to my perch…, and try,
    really hard, to find a mainstream publisher. Good luck with all you do Ritu. You’re certainly on the right line! Hugs x.

    I never practiced that. I think, resolutions only make sense when you feel them and apply them instantly out of a deep conviction and passion. But that is independent of the date. If someone wants a change, then go for it now!

    Good luck finishing your WIP and then moving on to your other ideas. Resolve in this instance as a verb: decide firmly on a course of action or as a noun: firm determination to do something. Either fits. You’ve got this!

    Happy New Year, Ritu. I like the word goal rather than resolution. Good luck with your writing!

    Life does get in the way, but you can accomplish what is important.
