Writing Prompt: New Year’s Resolutions

Posted by at 8:51 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Writingprompt_resolutions I’m guessing you’ve been so busy playing with your Christmas presents and enjoying no school that you might not have noticed that there’s only four more days left of the year.

Now, there are lots of people out there making their best-of lists — best songs of the year, biggest news stories of the last 10 years, favorite movies with talking animals — you name it and someone’s listed it (and as a heads up, you can catch Sonja’s best books of the year right here on Ink Splot 26).

But I’m not about to ask you to list anything. The past is in the past. I’m much more interested in all the new adventures everyone has planned for the next year.

Which is all just a long way of saying, Tell me your New Year’s resolutions!

    It’s super hard to believe that it’s almost a new decade! My New Year’s Resolution is to stop biting my nails. I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember. I’ve kinda already started, but that’s good! I promise myself every year that I will stop, but this year things will be different. Or so I hope! Good luck on all of your resolutions! Happy New Year!!!
