Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne’er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple Host
Who took the Flag today
Can tell the definition
So clear of Victory

As he defeated – dying –
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear !

Writing Resolutions

A year and a half ago I made the decision to finally pursue my writing aspiration, another year is approaching and as usual I come up with my resolutions so these are personal goals and writing goals.

*Polishing my manuscript. (I have retained an amazing editor so I am on the right path.)
* Finishing two WIP (rough draft)
*Tone my body (long term goal since I was fifteen years old)
*Writing for me and don't think about anything else relating to publishing biz
*decreasing my stress (this is a hard goal cuz I freak out a lot)
*Write for two hours everyday as per my writing calender

That's all I can think of right now it's 10.09 p.m.I tomorrow is my last day and I am off for two weeks the amount of writing I will do is making me so giddy, but I have to balance can't forget about my family/extended family during the holidays. This post will continue it'll be interesting in a few months when I revisit the above goals if I attained any.
