New year, new… #IWSG

Nope. Just nope. Not doing resolutions because things will not happen. That’s how it goes with me. I’ve got personal goals in mind that I’d like to work on, but if I can at least manage to actually work on them, I’ll consider it a win.

The hard part is motivation to do so. Time as well especially for the next few months or so.

Of course, I just had to go think about all of that and how much it’s going to just be one thing after another. x.x

2023 is already shaping up to be a year of changes. Mainly for my daughter, but while I’m not the one bridging up to a Scouts BSA Troop or starting middle school in August (among other things), I’m still involved.

And I’ve still got tasks from 2022 that I need to deal with. My poor beta readers are probably wondering what happened.

We’re only a few days into the new year and it’s shaping up to be a bit crazy, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I just might be more erratic than usual.

IWSG Question of the Month: Do you have a word of the year? Is there one word that sums up what you need to work on or change in the coming year? For instance, in 2021 my word of the year was Finish. I was determined to finish my first draft by the end of the year. In 2022, my word of the year was Ease. I want to get my process, systems, finances, and routines where life flows with ease and less chaos. What is your word for 2023? 

Like for me to pick the word? No, I never considered trying to narrow down everything to a single word. I’m not entirely certain I could ever decide on a single word for a year – I’d change my mind too often.

“Change” is pretty obvious with what is to come, but again, this is not one that I necessarily would have chosen. It’s not a bad one to use and could prove to make for an interesting adventure. I just don’t have any particular goal in mind to tack onto it.

For now I’ll simply roll with what I’m dealt and see where life wants to take me.

  1. Sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate this year. Juggling personal stuff and kid stuff is tough. You’re doing better than me, actually getting your daughter to scouts and whatnot. Do you have a lot of convention plans for this year? Or will 2023 be less busy than it was last year?

  2. Aiming for the same ones. Confirmed on 1. Need to send in the form and check on another. The others I’m waiting to become available to apply to. I’ve kicked the idea around of new ones, but I may need to just hold steady with my usual circuit at the moment.

    Already getting looks from people who are like: “You’re going to [scout adult training thing] this year, right?” And I’m like nope, got a con that weekend.

    She’s been in scouts for years now so it’s just part of the routine. Thankfully she’ll be staying on the same night and better is I won’t have to travel as far now. XD

  3. Here’s hoping it’s the good kind of change! I used to be big on New Year’s resolutions, but I have kind of given up on them. If you have goals, and you’re making progress toward them, that’s really all that matters. Any progress is good progress, I like to say.
