Forget those resolutions

I can *not* write every day on the novel. It just won't work with my life. The language goals are easier because they're more mechanical, but I'm definitely letting Portuguese be a now-and-then.

I don't know why I was able to write nearly every day in November but can't now in January. Maybe I should chalk this up to a rocky start (holiday, family, illness) but the year is strewn with similar obstacles, so I think I'll rethink this. I probably won't announce what the revised goal is--I'm only even posting this because a couple of people asked specifically about the writing goal, and it seems like proper accountability to say, Yeah no, this isn't going to work for me after all.

I think sometimes that, if it's a short-term goal -- in this case write every day in November -- you can make the effort and find the time. When that stretches out into endless goal, other things sometimes have to take priority or you just can't squeeze the words out day after day without pausing to let the creative spring refill.

I think that's exactly what the problem is for me.
