So we have now ventured into a new year and new decade to boot, what do you plan to do differently in 2010? Have you made a list of resolutions? A list that, for most people anyway, will go by the wayside long before the spring thaw. Or are you like many of us who have made no resolutions other than to try to make this year better than the last, which of course means we have set goals that we will strive to achieve. Is there truly a difference between a resolution and a goal? I wonder.
One of my goals is to make this space an active, living breathing place that people you and others will be interested in visiting on a regular basis. So, let’s hope you find this interesting and will come back for more in the days and weeks ahead.
Another goal is to participate in some very interesting challenges I have come across while perusing the internet. Just today I stopped by Inkygirl:Daily Diversions For Writers where I learned about the 1000 Words A Day Challenge which is similar to NanNoWriMo, but according to Inkygirl is for those of us who start out with a bang and may loose our way. With this challenge if you miss a day, but try again the next day you are still eligible as long as you are actively trying. Even better there is also a 500 Words A Day or 250 Words A Day Challenge. I will work on the 500 Words A Day, what do you think? Want to join me – if so learn more here.
The next challenge on my agenda has to do with my other love – reading. I’m not sure which of my writer idols tweeted about this site, and this challenge but I was very interested to find Brown Girl Speaks and the African Diaspora Reading Challenge. With this challenge I will be able to fulfill two goals at once – read more and write more, because as part of this challenge you have to write a review. Cha-Ching, double the pleasure.

So with these two goals as well as a plan to redesign this site and post more frequently I should be a very busy woman over the next 361 days!
I hope you will join me on my journey to offer your views, support or just to hang out!
~Til Next Time!
