Last night was a pleasant but unassuming way to end a decade. It’s not that celebrating the end of the last millennium ten years ago has spoiled New Year’s Eve forever, but with kids in tow the 31st December tends to be a fairly low-key affair.
One thing I do like about the beginning of a new year is the opportunity to make resolutions, those hopeful reminders of things you want to do over the next 12 months.
This year mine are simple: learn more Bengali, read more of the books that keep piling up and write more fiction.
In short do more of the things I started this blog to encourage me to do, though I have recently hived off the writing side of things to a private blog, to see if diary-date blog technology will encourage more frequent writing. So far it’s failed to magic more hours out of the day or any greater concentration on fiction, but there’s always hope.
What have you resolved to do more of in 2010?
