Resolution to Have Resolve

It's January -the month of resolutions. I personally love January's. To me the month itself says "fresh start". And who doesn't love a fresh new beginning?

Now, I was going ask what your New Year's Resolutions were, but that question is kind of old and the theme today is new. Also, my friend tells me that she doesn't tell others of her resolutions because she may not be able to keep them. Which made me think.

Out of your whole, potentially long list of resolutions, which one do you know will happen in 2011? Without a doubt you know, that you'll either stick to it, or make it happen, or it's just going to happen because is has to. Tell me that one. That one resolution that doesn't have the option of not happening.

Okay, I'll go first. I want to say that I will most certainly get an agent this year. I want to say that, but I'm not gutsy enough. I know that no matter how hard I try, an agent isn't guaranteed. So, I'll move onto my next resolution. Yes, this one I can decide to follow and make happen. This one rests solely on my shoulders. Here it is, I WILL loose my chocolate editing weight. You see, editing is painful, and chocolate helped ease the thousands of little pricks as I deleted favorite scenes and explanations. Unfortunately, it took more than a few sweet treats to ward off the evil edit monster and although my book is successfully whittled down to about 95,000 words, I'm feeling (and seeing) the effects. I don't have a goal weight, just the goal to fit back into my jeans comfortably.

So, what's yours? Tell me the one resolution that you know WILL happen in 2011!
