I’ve broken my silence and come back to wish you all a very happy New Year! I know that 2014 will be good for all of us. In celebration of the New Year, I think we should disregard some of the past (namely, the fact that I haven’t posted in two months) and make some plans for the future.

New Year, New Look (the most over used phrase in January)

Over the next couple weeks, expect some renovations on the site, and maybe even a change of URL. The blog needs a fresh start. I’ve been at this for two and a half years now, let’s try something different.

Posting Schedule

I do this every year. I create a posting schedule and after a month or so, it disappears. Oops. I figure most resolutions are like that. But regardless, this year I’ve planned for posts every Sunday (which obviously actually means that I’ll post every other Sunday because weekly would just be crazy). Do you think we can make it through?

This Year In Writing

One of my New Years Resolutions is to dramatically improve my writing before 2015 comes around. Over the course of last year, I’d lost touch with the writer in me. I failed NaNo for the first time since 2010.

I feel crude at my craft, out of practice. I think that I’d forgotten the fact that writing is something I do because I enjoy it. This year is all about falling in love with writing again.

So hopefully, as my writing progresses, this blog will find a little more focus. Which brings me to my next point..


WHAT HAS EVEN GONE ON IN 2013? My posts were crap, guys. That was awful. This year in blogging is meant to sharpen and define my writing, as well as bring a little bit more structure to this poor blog.

So there we have it. Writerly resolutions.

Finally, I want to thank Liam for being my personal reminder system and sticking with me all year. He’s bugged me and bugged me and bugged me about posting, and sometimes I would, and sometimes I wouldn’t. It’s probably been a frustrating year for him, but he’s stuck it out, and for that I’d like to say thank you.

I love you guys. I know this year will rock everyone’s socks and everything that you want to happen will happen and you’ll fall in love and become president and maybe even rule the world.

Anything’s possible.

  1. hey feebee! i missed your face. i hope you can stick to your resolutions!
    my resolution is to work harder at school (i got all B’s in my first semster of university through cramming so i’m curious how well i can do while trying hard!)
    love you !

  2. Yay, you posted! My work here is done. *lays back and sticks his feet up*

    Thanks for the mention. It was a pleasure yelling at you.

    And as for your resolutions, of course you’ll make them work. All of them. I look forward to all your posts, and if I forget to comment on one, yell at me. With your newfound focus on writing, how can I stand to miss out on anything?

    This year is a very good year. I can feel it– it’s going to be better than Frank Sinatra’s very good years. Why? Well… because we’re awesome. That’s reason enough.

  3. Ah Fee! You’re returning to the blogosphere then? Let’s keep each other accountable. I gotta kick my blog into shape as well. :)

    • LECTIN I MISSED YOU. The goal is to return, so I hope so. We’ll do fine, I’m sure. This is going to be the year that Fee and Lec’s blogs go into versions 2.0.

  4. At least you have a blog, Frau Kade. I forsook mine (Is forsook a word? I damn sure hope so.) and became a space pirate. Now I live on the fringes of society and watch far too much Parks and Rec than is good for me.

    • I think what you should do, Shel, is be an awesome space pirate who watches unhealthy amounts of Parks and Rec and sends unhealthy amounts of iMessages to Frau Kade.

  5. psst i wanna post
    tell me how your school is goin or something

  6. Coffee… I know I promised not to bug you anymore, but I can’t help it. I want words from you. I know you’re busy becoming president, but even presidents can blog. The tip of your pen longs to touch the paper it loves– indulge it just this once.

Love it? Hate it? Say so. Right here.
