Last year was very much a year of extreme highs and lows for me. Highs included being invited on fantastic trips, particularly the Disney Cruise, Disneyland Paris, Gamescom and visiting the Unicef Supply Centre in Copenhagen.
Lows included the loss of two relatives, and our beloved cat.
So I’m not really sorry to see the back of 2011. And there is quite a lot I want to achieve in 2012.
Starting with the New Year New Body challenge. I’m determined that I won’t reach my *cough cough* birthday out of shape, and being part of a group with other women all with the same goal is definitely going to help.
And I want to (need to) finish writing at least one of the novels I’ve started writing. You’d think, as I write professionally, writing a novel would come easily to me; but I guess that deep down there’s that awful fear of failure – that nagging voice saying ‘what if I’m rubbish?’
I’m going to ignore that voice and just get on with it. I know the ideas are good so I just need to finish at least one manuscript, send it off to agents and if that doesn’t work out, finish another one, and so on.
I am also going to pay off my two store cards, because the interest is ridiculous. (Note I didn’t say ALL my cards.)
2011? So over that. 2012? Bring. It. On.
