Coming up on my own New Year's Resolutions... but I am not so great at those.

Instead, I am embarking on something I saw in the NaNoWriMo forums; 52 books in 52 weeks.

The rules.

New Year's Resolutions with Cherbino

Cherabino’s New Year’s Resolutions

A blog post by Alex Hughes

As we approach the holiday season, it’s time to think about friends, family, and the changes we’d like to make in our lives. Specifically, Cherabino and her very ambitious New Year’s Resolutions.

  1. Work less, and spend more time with family. On second thought, just spend more time with family. At least birthdays. And Sunday dinner, once in a while. 
  2. Don’t punch Adam, even if he deserves it. 
  3. Take down Fiske. Settle for helping somebody else take down the bastard. 
  4. Send Michael all my notes and casebooks—copy the ones at the house. Send him the copies. Make sure he has my private number. 
  5. Show up to judo practice on time. 
  6. Try to get along with Adam at the PI office. No punching. Really. 
  7. Pay the water bill on time. 
  8. See about that counselor they recommended. Maybe. If it’s cheap. (Note: can help not to punch Adam?) 
  9. Submit all my expense reports for the last three years to the department. With receipts. I need the money. 
  10. Make fewer New Year’s resolutions. 
What are your resolutions this holiday season, dear readers?

Hmmm. As for me, Alex, I think I need to mull that one over for a few more days.

But happy to share that Vacant is available today....

And I get to give away a copy! Actually an e-book of the winner's choosing from the Mindspace series.

Be sure to make the rounds, I hear there is a scavenger hunt.

And I will be giving away ONE e-book copy of ANY of the Mindspace novels. 

Stay tuned.

One of my perks is a heavily discounted copy of Scrivener.

Maybe now I can actually get to the doing something about all this writing part of writing.

After I figure out how to use it of course.
