Wishing You a Happy New Year!

Around here, all is still holiday hustle and bustle. There is still lots of visiting with family and friends going on, not to mention too much eating of too many Christmas cookies. So, this post is going to be short and sweet:

Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2012!!!

I have a bad track record keeping resolutions made on the cusp of a new year, so I make resolutions as I go along. However, I’ll admit that I am looking forward to a 2012 of writing and completing projects. I am also looking forward to reading lots of wonderful books.

How about you? Are you making any resolutions for 2012? Dare I ask if you kept those you made for 2011?

Happy, happy New Year !



  1. I stopped making resolutions a long time ago because I would make a list - of perfectly attainable things, mind you - and then screw up almost immediately and get frustrated over the whole thing and give up. So now I simply think about the coming year and the things I would like to accomplish, and make a conscious effort to do my absolute best to attain those things. And I can honestly say that during 2011 I actually did do some things I set out to do, so the method really works!

  2. I'm still eating too many holiday sweets. The candies and cookies and pies keep showing up!!!
    I think I had better resolve to cut my sugar intake.
    Happiest holidays and best wishes to you.

  3. I make a resolution not to make resolutions! LOL!

    Have a wonderful festive time! The cookies sound yummy and hooorah for holidays continuing!

    Roll on 2012! Take care

  4. I've never been one for resolutions, but I suppose this year's would be to just make sure I follow through.

    Happy New Year, Cynthia, may it bring you great things!

  5. I am impressed, Sabrina! Especially that you accomplished some of the items on your list!

    I hear you loud and clear, Trisha! We've got way too many sweets lingering around here. I've already resolved to cut down on the sugar! : )

    Good for you, Old Kitty! Roll on 2012 indeed! : )

    Thank you, JeffO! May 2012 bring you great things, as well! (What a lovely wish, btw).

  6. Happy New Year to you too! Hope it is safe, healthy and happy and brings lots of success!

  7. I don't do resolutions, I have the attention span of a pea, and find I lose interest in a few weeks. I'll try to do as you, and make little changes along the way.
    I did reach a few goals this past year. I hope to continue!

  8. Yeah...resolutions. Don't make them anymore. I'm sort of like you -- make them as I go along.

    As for the rest of 2011, I'm going to be an excellent bum and finish this 900th draft revision and read a lot!

    Looking forward to 2012 though!

  9. I make goals instead of resolutions. And I did fair in 2011. I'm inspired to do better in 2012. Happy New Year!

  10. Here's to hoping this year's full of wonderful things for all of us! Writing and reading are great things to look forward to. :D

  11. Happy 2012 to you to, Cynthia! I'm a bad resolution maker and keeper, but I'm going to try to make and keep some in 2012!

  12. Here's to a wonderful 2012! I gave up NY's Resolutions a few years back. I'm just so bad at remembering what I promised myself, let alone actually following through and doing it.

    Thanks for stopping by the Write Game. Hope to see you again next year.

  13. Happy New Year to you, Cynthia!
    My resolutions are always similar so I'll just go with the usual. Eating better, exercising more, write more. :)

  14. Heh. For the past few years, my resolution has been to slow down and do less.

    Happy New Year!

  15. Happy New Year!!!
    I think 2012 for me will be more writing and less social media. So I'm getting in some quick blog reading now :)

  16. Hurray for reaching those goals, Terry!

    I'm looking forward to 2012, too, Karen! Happy reading and revising.

    Inspiration is a beautiful thing, Carol. : )

    Absolutely, LIsa!

    Good luck, Alissa! And a happy and healthy 2012 to you, too. I look forward to seeing you at our next KidLit Authors event.

    Cleemckenzie, I laughed when I read that you are bad at remembering what you promised yourself. This sounds familiar. ; )

    Those sound like fine resolutions, Kelly! Happy 2012 to you!

    Slow down and do less sounds healthy, Jenn. Good luck.

    Ah, I understand, Michelle. Social media does have a way of invading upon writing time.

    Happy new year to all!

  17. Hi Cynthia,
    huge happy new year wishes to you and have a fabulous 2012.

  18. I kept a little over half of my 2011 resolutions, and I'm still working on my 2012 resolutions. :)

    Happy new year!!

  19. No resolutions. Only goals. I blogged about it, too. I just stopped by to say:

    Happy New Year, Cynthia!

  20. Thanks, Ebony! Here's hoping 2012 is a great year for all! : )

    I'm impressed, Peggy. Good luck with those new resolutions.

    Well, thanks for stopping by, Nancy! Happy 2012!

  21. Stopping by to wish you a Happy New Year. I hope it's the best!

  22. I haven't made any resolutions, but am looking forward to learning and growing with my writing as I move toward publishing my novel. Wishing you much happiness and writing in the coming year!

  23. I like to set "intentions." :-) I think it's good to do them as you go along instead of all at once. Best wishes for 2012.

  24. Happy New Year to you too. My only hope is that I can submit more writing for publication...

  25. Happy New Year Cynthia! I don't believe in resolutions myself, rather, I believe in writing down goals. (this was my post for today, funnily enough). I hope you get to read tons of wonderful books this year :)

  26. Hey, Doralynn, great to see you. Happy 2012 to you!

    Sounds like a wonderful plan, Joanne!

    Hi Melissa! I love the use of "intentions."

    Ah, a worthy hope, Madeleine. Good luck!

    Thanks, Nutschell! I'll stop by your blog to read your goals. : )

  27. Happy new year 2012 to you too! Reading more is a good one. I have general goals--write more, play the piano, do some artwork, exercise!! Have fun. :)
