I'm very tempted to list a string of resolutions that will make me a better person, a slimmer person, a happier person and maybe even one who can afford to pay the rent. But do I need the added pressure?
As it is I've already accumulated several caps for this one head, have one too many irons in the fire and rely too heavily on cliches for my own good. So for 2014 I have only one resolution and that is to do everything. Now that might sound pretty vague or that doing everything is too much for one person so maybe I should explain my thinking.
It struck me that during this year I spent a lot of it saying that I have so much to do, so much to think about and not enough time. But then I thought about all the times I sat procrastinating, watching a crap film or television programme, read a dodgy book to the end just because I started it or sat talking about the things I want to do instead of just getting up and doing them. So this is where everything comes into it.
I could do everything if I cut out the rot. I will stop wasting time planning, pondering, dreaming, hoping or wishing and just do.
With this attitude, in 2014 it will mean writing new songs, finishing my second novel, having a fabulous launch party for my first novel and finding myself an agent.
So in 2014 if you make a new year's resolution to do one thing - make it everything.
Happy New Year!
