New Years Resolutions for Free Write Friday
Kellie Ellmore asks that we write on the prompt: this weeks prompt:
“New Year’s Resolutions” with Free writing —
also called stream-of-consciousness writing —
It should be free verse only and appear as a journal/diary entry.
Leave it alone as much as possibly we can.
I don’t often write in paragraph form…
though occasionally I do…
but write as I have below…sometimes in bullets,
sometimes lists of thoughts, or outline.
What ever fits my mood. And often write in color.
New Years Resolutions
I am a retired nurse…RN
and I have a quirk on
resolutions any time of the year.
Some time ago,
I started writing resolutions
in the form of a nursing care plan
stated with a problem,
reasonable goal date to accomplish,
and steps to accomplish.
It’s been a long time…
the first time i can remember
doing it was maybe thirty years
ago when it seemed I was
The goals are kept
to one or two at a time
and usually something
I just need to get done
that I’ve been procrastinating.
New Years is a good time
to take a look back
and see where I want to go
in the next year.
Writing them down
gives me something
and an interesting view
of my mind set
as the years roll on….
as I get older.

Well thank you so much! I am so happy to see you back to FWF this week! I agree that keeping goals to a minimum is the best way to go about things. Less of a disappointment when we fail lol! Great post and thank you for sharing! Happy Holidays!

Kellie…I try each week to post but am the mother of an adult child that has a chronic illness
and sometimes time gets away from me …
for forty years she lived with me or just down the street and now lives in Texas.
!’m hoping to develop some way to keep track of what
needs to be posted and when…so life doesn’t get in the way of writing.
I do enjoy your posts and following you.
Many blessings wished for you this Holiday season and a prosperous New Year.

Good entry, Siggi! Sounds like you’re kind of in the same boat with several of us. I wonder if it’s a “writer” thing?
Thanks for joining in!

At least I’m not a lone in my boat ! It was nice that you gave Kellie the boost…it got me out of my rut and moving. I enjoy the challenges…a fun way to see what pops out of the keys on the computer☺.
Thanks for subscribing to my blog. I am honored.
