I was going to post a December 31st blog to close out 2008, but since I left so much of the year unfinished, I decided to end 2008 by writing this blog but not posting it until 2009. That way, I’ll have not fully completed one last thing, and started the new year with a blog, which I probably wouldn’t have written on the first. That also seems to be some kind of good writing karma, verdad? straddling two years with some form of creative thinking? I like to think so anyway. And now, the New Year’s resolutions I’m prepared to deal with Satan over:

6. Have a six pack by the time it’s hot enough to cannonball into Barton Springs*
6. Get my book to 45,000-50,000 words of satisfying literature by April 4th**
6. Grab my student loan and credit card debt by the proverbial balls and rip them from the beast***

If I die an untimely death, you’ll know I’ve achieved my goals, and the devil has collected. Let me know if you’re aware of any good crossroads I can wait at.

*I used to have one, and damn, I was sexy.
**following the ‘roiding of my book, I’d like to finish the second and third book I’ve started as well as my screenplay and graphic novel...that I’ve also started.
***the beast, in this case, is “Melissa” the robot.
