Five days into the new year,

1/5/11 — Five days into the new year, and so far I’m living up to my 2011 writing resolution: Write first thing in the morning, before doing anything else. This applies even if it’s only a few minutes at the computer before breakfast. Get in the writing mindset and come right back to it after eggs — sunnyside up on toast — and coffee. Then stay with it until I’ve met my writing goal for the day. First things first!
