Writing Prompt: Happy New Year

It’s 2017 and this is my first prompt for the year. 2016 brought a lot of challenges, both personally and professionally, but I look at 2017 optimistically, certain that I can make this a better year.

Key points of 2016 included:

  • Adoption of two new lovely felines, Oreo and Biscuit
  • New job
  • Trip to India
  • Took Mark to Sicily and went up to Mount Etna
  • Skiing in Gressoney, Italy
  • Started back at University after 15 years out of education
  • New friends
  • Lots of gigs, theatre and opera including:
    • Don Giovani
    • Cosi Fan Tutti
    • Doctor Faustus
    • Impossible
    • Wicked
    • The Merchant of Venice
    • Richard III
    • A Midsummer Night’s Dream
    • As You Like It
    • Macbeth
    • Duran Duran
    • Red Hot Chilli Peppers
    • Stevie Wonder
  • Great Christmas and New Year with my family in the US
  • Political Debate

Low points:

  • US Election
  • Brexit Vote
  • Job Hunting
  • Death of my beloved cat, Titch
  • Put on a stone

Although there are a few things on this list that are beyond my control, I can do something about my weight, so that’s part of the 2017 plan for improvement. Marathon scheduled for May this year.

For this prompt, make a list of the high and low points of 2016. Make plans for 2017 and don’t forget to include your writing ambitions for this year. I, for one, plan to write every day. Even if it’s just a few lines. Furthermore, I’m going to start keeping a hand written journal again. I promise to be more faithful in my blogging here and will blog at least twice a week.

Happy 2017 and Happy Writing!
