A Shameful Post

Yeah, yeah...it's a new damn year.

As you can see, getting a better attitude was not on the list of resolutions. Or maybe it was and I have already failed. Whatever.

I don't really do resolutions. Last year I wrote a tongue in cheek look at what I hoped to attain in the coming year. Was I successful, well, I still have an attitude, I still laugh a lot, I still find joy in as much as I can and I still have a big problem backing down. Tough.

With the exception of losing my hero, this year wasn't bad. A bunch of new doors have opened for me, I've made a lot of great contacts, enjoyed a lot of live music and reconnected with some people who are very important in my life. It also means I'm a year older and the numbers I'm hitting ain't pretty.

So what's in store for 2013? Who the hell knows. I was just gonna laze around today and not even write until I started reading all my online peeps new posts. So I start my new year being shamed into writing. All things considered, I've been shamed into a lot worse.

Will I write a novel? Very doubtful...my attention span lately is more twitter-like than War and Peace. I will write short. Lately, I've been doing a lot of short. For someone who up to a couple of years ago, avoided an online footprint like the plague, I am now everywhere like dogshit crabgrass. I guess that's a good thing.

So thanks to all of you who have stopped by from time to time... personally I don't get it. I am grateful though. Hopefully I will continue to amuse, annoy or fill you with apathy for some time to come.

First of the year, one post written. And I didn't even have anything to say.

I guess you might have noticed that.
It is what it is.
Happy New Year.



  1. What's there to get? As is mentioned over and over, our words are important. Everything we put on our pages has a chance to inspire, motivate, anger, or entertain people and I am grateful you've decided to share :) Happy New Year, I'm glad to "know" ya!

  2. Well, I do get why us writers visit each other. We love to be amazed by how someone else can put a sentence together...or laugh at each other when we can't. But for non-writers to visit because we touch them in some way...I guess that's what makes us keep doing it. As always, I thank you for stopping by and look forward to a whole new year "together"
