But all joking aside, this new year means I’ll be one year closer to thirty, so perhaps getting on the health bandwagon soon could mean I’ll be around to enjoy my friends and family much longer. (But who knows, they’re all off doing naughty things themselves.)
Perhaps this is the year that brings me closer to my dream. (Forgive me if this is too ‘sappy’ for you.) When 2009 started, I had no intention or idea of blogging, and did not know about the wonderful world of support out there. For someone who’s always said “I want to be a writer”, it’s getting easier by the week to say “I am a writer”. All those notes and paragraphs and sentences I jotted down, and the poems I wrote, they now mean something.
Small, baby steps – leading me ever onward – and for someone who didn’t even know how to get the word out, it’s overwhelming to have met people in the know, people who can lead in the right direction. Overwhelming, but great.
So, now it’s time to buckle down. It is high time to make something good happen, for all the believers, but most of all for myself. I guess my ultimate resolution is to get busy with THE BOOK!! Not to worry, anecdotes and short stories shall abound online! But that book that’s been festering for so long seems to be knock-knock-knocking, ready to get out once and for all.
I love to share my old, and sometimes silly forays into early writing, so to cap off this old year, here’s an oldie (and yes, part of the new resolution means putting it out there, as embarrassing as it is):
Rape the Sea – 2001 (see, even then, I was dark)
