I hope you are all having a good day so far. I unfortunately have to work all day, so mine won’t be as relaxing as it could be. But hey, it’s money.
We started the morning off on a great note in my apartment with some homemade Strawberry-Orange smoothies in our new blender (same recipe I shared on here before) and I made a protein shake for lunch.
Making an about-face, I have set a goal of at least 500 words of fiction a day. I was too tired last night to do any writing, but that excuse will not fly from this point forward. Whatever I start, I am going to finish. So the mystery story I started the other night (partially based on a true story) WILL be finished by the end of next week, hopefully sooner. Quality does not matter anymore–writing can be fixed and polished later. The important thing is that the story gets told and I let my thoughts and ideas run free on paper.
This blog needs to start growing again. I have gone from hundreds and hundreds of views a day to less than a hundred. I have seriously fallen off the bandwagon with my website and my blogging, and it’s time to get back at it. I know my political posts are usually my most popular, but at the same time I want to try keeping politics out of my life in 2019. We will see, though.
I have a few other non-resolutionish goals I’m going to shoot for this year, ones I will probably talk about later. But for now, on to work!
