Someone older and wiser than I am has been known to say, when I was a teen in particular, "You always say you are 'going to...' and you never quite follow it through." Unfortunately, my Dad has an irritating habit of being right most of the time.
I was thinking the other day about how many things I have started and not seen through. Stories, diets, hobbies, you name it. The realisation that I have had so many ideas that have not been completed has suddenly made me feel really motivated.
I have 3 novels on the go. I have now decided to focus on one of them, and edit it to a readable state. This is the 50k+ word story that I wrote in November 2009. I'm not going to open up the other 2 files again until this has been edited to the point that I am happy with it.
As for myself, I am putting this in writing in the hope that it will help me stick with it. I am going to lose some weight and then start running again. There was recently a 10k race locally, and next year I want to feel fit enough to enter it. I can't believe I have not been running since 2008, when I went through a phase of enjoying it so much.
My target for these things is April next year. I have a significant birthday that month, and I want to feel like I have achieved these two things by then.
Please feel free to send encouraging vibes my way!
