2015 Readin’ an Writin’ Resolutions


This afternoon, I deleted Dice With Buddies and Words with Friends from my phone.  I’m not usually one to make resolutions because I know the enthusiasm fizzles by about Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  However, I fully admit I have/had a problem with game apps.  I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but I would play them primarily when I first woke up, shortly before bed, during sporadic downtime throughout the day, and of course while in the restroom.

I can’t know for sure, but I’d say about 1-2% of my 2014 was devoted to playing these silly games.  There’s nothing at stake; I even played the Free Versions.  It was a kiddish distraction.

But it/they is/are gone.

I resolve to use time like that to write or read much more this year and in the future.  If I can, I’m going to have my phone’s background be one black word on a white page: WRITE.

This is not meant to discourage any of you from playing your games.  Do whatever you’d like, obviously.  For me, however, I’m becoming more career goal-oriented, and that career is not to become a professional Scrabble player.

Although, I think I would have done pretty well in that…
