One blogger advised to think of New Year's Resolutions not as "taking on something new" but as giving something up. So here's what I'm giving up:
- I'm giving up being unproductive after the kids go to bed. The people I admire most work self-imposed long hours.
- I'm giving up limiting creative possibilities.
- And I'm going to try very hard to give up sleeping in until the absolute last minute before taking the kids in to school. I intend to keep a work-world type day.
Today, I did get up at a respectable 6:30 am, submit scripts to three theatres, query one more, and write a blog post. Now, for the next items on my to-do list: get out of my pajamas and write morning pages.
