A New Start




    For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice,


    And to make an end is to make a beginning. – T.S. Eliot, “Little Gidding”


 


As we ring in a new year, there is, of course, a lot of talk about New Year’s Resolutions.  You can talk about whether or not to make them in the first place, how to find the resolve to stick to them, or even how long you think it will take before you break them.  If you do have a list of resolutions, write it down!  Writing something down gives it greater significance (and also makes it harder to ignore!).


 


Whether you make resolutions or not, a new year is the perfect time for a fresh start.  You can start a new writing project, or breathe new life into a long-forgotten work.  Who knows, 2012 might be the year you get that novel published!  Write on!
