Notes From The Road: Happy New Year


Notes From the Road: Happy New Year

I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions. Deciding to do something  just because of the day of the week has never really made a whole lot of sense to me. But sometimes, the first of the year seems like the perfect time to make a change.

And in the next twelve months, I have a big change coming.

Scott knows what it is.  But as of now, only a couple of other people do, and it would be stupid to announce it just yet.  The blogging equivalent of posting  nude pictures to Facebook. For one thing, it may not happen. And if I said “it’s coming”, then couldn’t pull it off? Yeah. For another, assuming it does work, I’m going to piss some people off. Not that this is anything new for me.  Pissing people off is practically a second job some days. But I think I’ll wait to give them notice to be angry before I say anything less vague here.

But.  Within the next year, there’s a major adjustment I need to make in my life. And it’s the kind of thing I’ll be positively tap dancing about over here. It has to do with the recent publication of Divorce: A Love Story by the very awesome people over at Throwaway Lines.  (And it’s definitely not them I’m planning to make mad.)

Stay tuned for infrequent updates. I don’t set goals. Those are just invitations to failure for me. I either do things, or I don’t do them. And this is something I plan to do. It’s something I need to do. And I’m very goddamned resolved.

  1. Some of the most beneficial life changes make people mad.

    Who cares about them.

    I don’t make goals or resolutions, either. I have a whole post percolating about that, but of course, me being me, I am waiting til next weekend to run it. (You know, after everyone else has run their posts about that stuff.) 🙂

    Good luck with this change.

    • I generally take the whole thing as a fad and ignore it. In this case, the timing coincides with something that’s coming up right at the end of this year, IF I can make a lot of things happen right for the next few months.

  2. I agree about the whole resolutions thing.

    Hope everything works out for you, Jessie. Look forward to reading about it.

  3. OOOhhhhh Tell Tell ! I hate secrets after a tickle of things to come.

    Hurry Up 2012 – let’s get to the secrets.

    Bug

  4. Can’t even guess what the change is because I’ve yet to find time to dig through your past posts as I’d like too but it sounds like it will be good for you, so who cares who you piss off doing it? As for New Years goals? Yeah, I’ll blog that eventually……

  5. Oooooh, you’re such a tease. I’m hoping that it’s what I think it is. Good Luck with the mystery secret thing you can’t talk about!

For the love of Mike, TALK to me! (Concrit welcome on fiction)
