Here you will find writing prompts to jump start your imagination and inspire you as a fiction writer. Every Wednesday I post a first line which you can use as a starting point to write your own fabulous, tragic, magical, hilarious and hopefully award-winning short story. Want more? Check back often for other prompts designed to keep the words flowing. You'll also find the occasional author interview, book review or musing from me as I share my own journey as a writer.

So your boss is beady-eyed?
P.S. I've had enough snow already and this was the only real snowfall of the season. A lot of shoveling.
I'm self-employed. Does that make me beady-eyed? lol.
The snow...the snow! I have this bad habit of rarely checking the weather report. (Why bother? They're wrong most of the time anyway, right?) So, the snow totally caught me by surprise!
But a little surprise now and then keeps life interesting.
You know, when I met you, I never really looked. Just kidding!!
I figured out the problem with New Year's Resolutions. If you have more than one (I have 4 major ones)they compete for time! It's still a good idea to give yourself yearly goals, but I guess that's where priorities come in.
I'll look for that magazine article the next time I'm at Barnes and Noble. Congrats.
I think it is awesome that you have four goals for this year. You know, I've been thinking about this and I like the word 'goal' instead of 'resolution'. Goal implies something fresh and new and positive whereas resolution (when used in connection with New Year's) has a negative connotation. It often means to drop a bad habit (ie. quit smoking, lose weigh etc.) Maybe that's what bothers me about resolutions.
Goals or Resolutions. They're the same thing under a different name.
If I don't set them at the beginning of the year (I'm actually thinking that I want to set them twice a year - once in January and once in July), I find that I've accomplished nothing at the end of the year. I'm starting to run out of years that I can do nothing. I'm already in my 60s.
It's good to have something to shoot for, whatever you call it, as long as it's measurable so that you have a specific target and not a blue sky idea that you don't know if you accomplished it or not.
I do have weight loss as one of the four, but it's not only the number but changing the way I eat (and what I eat) and a gradually increasing amount of exercise that I'll know if I hit or not.
They're is another one dealing with writing (going beyond where I ended last year), another with finance (won't go into specifics), and a last one going room to room claning out clutter which I accumulated over the years and starting to get overwhelming.
Busy year ahead.
Good luck with them all! Very admirable.
