After much thought and consideration about where I am in my life as the calendar flares "2011," I've made my choice.
For all the words I considered, there was always this one word coming back again and again, like an echo across a wide canyon. You can't ignore something like that. And it's a word that makes sense, too, after a year spent in the more superficial celebratory mode of launching a debut novel.
This year I want something different. This year I want to go...
Deeper in my writing, in my relationships, in my spiritual life. I don't want to get all lazy and stop. I don't want to cave to the multitude of excuses that come with a life that chock-full.
This year I want to keep going, keep pushing, even when it gets itchy and tight and my stomach starts to lurch.
This year I will embrace the itch, create the burn, take more risks. This year I'm going deeper. And I'll share some of my experiences, here, with you, my friends in cyberspace.
Now. What about you? Have you chosen your one little word? I'd love to hear about it!
