My Word

It's become a tradition for me that instead of making New Year's Resolutions (and breaking them), I choose a word to guide me through the year. Sometimes the word comes quickly; sometimes--like last year--it's a struggle to find.

I usually start my word search by making a list of goals for the year. Below is my list for 2016. See if you can detect a pattern.

  • Go to the gym.
  • Go for walks.
  • Go volunteer.
  • Go to ALL my doctors. (I somehow missed my eye exam in 2015. Oops!)
  • Go on a writing retreat
  • Go to writers' conference or workshop.
  • Go to California
  • Go to the United Kingdom.

Three guesses what my word for 2016 is.

Kind of a no-brainer, huh?
