    Whoa! Your goals are way more ambitious than mine! Similar to your hope to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY, my one-word theme of the year is COMPLETION. I’m attempting 500 words per day, with hopes of completing my WIP by June 30, 2015. I’m participating in a reading challenge, as well, but nothing extremely structured. I made a list of 50 books I want to read this year, and if I hit ‘em all, that’s awesome, but if I fall short, that’s okay.I know I need to work in some exercise, too, so maybe I’ll concentrate more on that next round. Good luck! We can do this!

      1. Unfortunately, I only seem to be able to write at night. My kids aren’t in bed until 9 so that only leaves me a couple of hours if I stay up until 11. I try not to stay up later than that because I have to get up early. Ahhhh…oh well, sleep is for wimps anyway. 😉
