April is my January, the month I start over each year; April 3 is January 1 when all my annual resolutions kick into gear. Here is my update. I am doing this because there must be a post to TODAY X 365 or my primary resolution will be broken—which is to post an essay, story or new photograph each day. EVERY DAY. ALL YEAR. By the end of these 365 days I will be a polished writer and a moderately successful photographer.
Of course there are other resolutions since it would not be possible to start a new year without resolving to improve exercise and diet habits. I get B for exercise, missing only one abs class and two cold morning walks; B- for the 5-2 diet plan because, while I’ve been more careful than usual, I haven’t managed the two 500 calorie days each week. I get an A for no NCIS marathons (until today) and for not buying any new books. Obviously daily posting to my new blog is the biggie—where I must get an A.
That’s my problem today. Like yesterday, today is a bit of a downer. Not sure why. But I cannot think of one single thing about which to write…except writing about not writing. And I do not want to even walk around the block to take a new photo.
I cannot break my resolution however. Like yesterday then…three paragraphs of whining and some old photos newly scanned. If I do this ever so rarely my A will hold!
Here’s the short version of my life story:
