This Year I Will

It’s the season of resolutions. We may not tell anyone our plans for the new year, but the media knows that we’re all out here trying to eat healthier, exercise more, get things organized, and generally improve ourselves and the world around us. To kick off 2008, I thought I’d share a few of my professional resolutions for the year (along with some related resources to get started with, in case we happen to share goals for 2008):

Okay, I have a lot of work to do in the coming year. There's an English Journal CFP due on January 15, and I can't forget that convention proposal. Time for me to get writing! And if you have professional New Year’s resolutions to share, please post a comment.
