Happy New Year!

As part of my last blog post about goals, not resolutions, today is the first day of taking the Blog Everyday Challenge.  Here is today's topic:

Resolutions!   

What is your resolution for 2011?  Do you often make a resolution and not keep it?  What is the longest you have kept a New Years resolution?  What is your most often chosen New Years resolution?  What do you think about New Years resolutions?

I already wrote about my goals for the year (referenced in the first link above), but in answer to a couple of questions, I always make resolutions and then don't keep them.  This is why I decided on goals for this year instead.

Of course I always choose the weight-loss resolution each year.  Sometimes it works; most times it doesn't.  I think it's because I put too much pressure on myself to try to be as thin as I was back when I was a teenager.  I've finally realized that after having three kids and being in my 40s, that just can't happen.  So I'm setting a reasonable goal this time, and hopefully that will work.

I have nothing against resolutions; they just don't work for me.

Onto some exciting stuff to start my year!

I am a book reviewer for two different online horror sites, and my first reviews for each site debuted today!  Here are the links:


Disaster Park by Mark Konkel, reviewed on Rise Reviews.

Alice on the Shelf by Bill Gauthier, reviewed on The Bag and the Crow.

Still waiting to hear on a submission to the monthly Necon e-books flash fiction contest, and waiting for a link to be posted to the latest issue of an online magazine I have a story appearing in and also another review.

Great start to 2011!
