Well after the blogging holiday over Christmas and the setting of some writing goals it was inevitable that I would choose a word that consolidated my intentions for the New Year.
I decided against setting resolutions this year. I usually make them with good intentions on January 1st and by February I've forgotten all about them. So this year I decided to just set some rather woolly intentions - being kinder to myself, having a little adventure each month for example - and I hope I'll feel better about myself by the end of the year.
However my writing goals are more rigorous and hence my #WOTD is 'resolve'. In order to succeed with them I need to use all my resolve. I want to get into a more regular writing habit, writing something daily would be ideal. However, in order to do this I have to resolve to stop watching day-time TV. I know, I know - why am I wasting time watching trashy day-time TV? I don't tend to turn the TV off after we've watched the Breakfast TV headlines in the morning and I get sucked into programmes that I don't need to watch (Jeremy Kyle?!?)
So I resolve to turn the TV off each morning and do something more productive instead. If I can't bear the quiet I'll stick on a CD! But I will move away from using the TV as 'chewing gum for the eyes' and use my time better.
