Happy New Year!

Did you stay up? Really, now, don't lie. If you're a parent to a wee one, like me, and... like me... well-past your twenties, you probably fell asleep on the couch watching football. I don't even watch the New York City festivities anymore--how sad is that? 

So, this morning I got up, made coffee, checked my email, and immediately perused my YouTube subscriptions. Don't judge. Yes, I'm a YouTube junkie. But what really got me this morning was Bethany Mota -- yes, from Dancing with the Stars -- who made a NYE video chocked full of outfit and DIY ideas. It's the last part that really got me, though.

She said she always gets right on her goals as soon as the New Year begins. She doesn't wait. Doesn't giver herself a breather. There's no better time than the present, right?

Her enthusiasm really resonated with me, though, and I thought, "You need to write, girl. Not only on your manuscript (a given), but also on your webpage. And do both, like, frequently."

So, here's my first goal: write, work, research, something on the manuscript every single day. 

Boom. I said it. Phew. That wasn't so bad. And there's no let's see how well I stick with it. No sir-ee. It's do or die, man. Write every day. 

Write every day.

Every single day.

So, what's your first goal for 2015?

Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,

Well, I don't make goals or resolutions, but I do write every day.
In fact, I was up writing Monday's post, last night. But I did fall asleep kind of early and had to get back up for midnight.
It's the cat's fault.
