New Year's Resolution, Part 2

This year's resolution was to have resolutions that had nothing to do with weight loss or organization. Check!

My first resolution of the new year is to take pictures of the girls every day all year long. I will have the camera ready for tomorrow.

My second resolution is less about being a parent and more about being creative:

I will write (and complete) at least four short stories this year.

I had considered writing a novel, but I think I'm not quite there yet. I am, though, at a place where I really want to pick up the writing again. Last year, I wrote three 20K-word short stories as a ghost writer. It was extremely challenging yet tons of fun. This year I want to write for myself. I've got some ideas rolling around in my head, so I'm going to put those ideas to paper. I may share them wholly or partially on the blog. I may start a completely different blog. I've also seen writing challenges floating around the Internet that sound like a fun way to challenge myself. I may do some of those or even create some of my own. I am a writing teacher after all; I've even considered doing some of the homework assignments I assign my students.

What are you resolutions this year? Do you have any? Are you looking for a way to challenge yourself, even if it only lasts until the end of January? 

Resolutions or not, everyone have a wonderful evening and the happiest of new years!!
