A Writely Applied New Year 2009


Never tell your resolution beforehand, or it’s twice as onerous a duty.

~ John Selden

Does that ever say it all? I suppose I can’t share how I’ll write every day, let alone post at Writely Applied and Big Shoes every day. Time will tell if I’ve started the New Year anew, or if I’ve resolved to accept myself as I am. Is it so bad to find yourself just trying to be the best you can be? Or to do only the good you have in your power to do?

A great man once said…


Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find you a better man.

~ Benjamin Franklin

And so it is with me. I will wage war against my vices, win peace with my neighbors and hope that each year I find myself a better person.

I’ll share a collection of quotes posted at YouTube to “stimulate creative thinking about New Year’s Resolutions” by CreativeQuotations.com.
