Resolutions. I have none. Well kinda.

Last year I swore that it would be the year I finished my book and became published. I got 50 percent there, which is not bad for me since I usually don’t fall through with the resolutions.

So my promises are not promises so much as deberes, homework on a to do list that has already started moving since before midnight Jan. 1.

First of all grad school. I’m getting my MFA in creative writing-fiction. Super excited about it.

Next, will finish the second book — Los Boleros de mi padre — this year.

Thirdly, will submit short stories to be published.

Then, will launch my online only fiction series — The Brown Sugar Mysteries. (more on that later)

And finally, network, network, network.

Those are my resolutions as a writer. I’ll do my best not to break them before Jan 15. We’ll see.
