My New Year’s Resolutions Have a Catch 22

Remember my 3 goals for the year, “3 New Year’s Resolutions That Aren’t Going to Be Easy“? Well, it turns out I may have understated the case. So far, my New Year’s resolutions have a catch 22 that’s got me in a kind of loop – when I start doing better at one, I start doing worse at another.

For example, making progress on 1 and/or 2 (setting up a writing space and writing ahead, respectively) usually makes me fail at 3 (getting enough sleep). Succeeding at 3, requires skipping work on 1 and 2 (for the most part), and that’s mainly what’s been happening (not good).

So what’s the plan?

Well, it occurred to me that setting up an office is more finite than the other two goals. Once it’s set up, it’s there, and keeping it is easier and less time-consuming (Obvious, maybe, but not when you’ve been losing sleep…). So if I push and get the office done, A. I’ll finish that goal for the most part (reducing my workload – yay!), and B. having a dedicated writing space will make the second goal (you know, the writing part) easier.

Win-win, right?

Eh…mostly. The one downside is that dedicating my energy to making that writing space is taking energy away from my writing. That means that Deathwalker and Wind Town posts will resume once the office is set up. But don’t panic! I’m hoping to have it done by the end of next week at the latest.

Then, I’m going to catch up on a sleep for a day or two (believe me, the writing will be better if I do), and then, I will start working on novel posts again.

Thanks in advance for your patience!
