Make resolves you can keep. Make resolves you can't keep.
Don't linger with what is meaningless (boring or feeble) in visual or written art.
Don't waste time. Marvell's winged chariot whirs like a cicada in the background.
Don't finish books that aren't what they were meant to be or what they should be. Don't waste your precious time.
Don't judge books based on what they are not.
Clean up your writing room and all books and papers throughout the house.
Jettison things. Books, clothes, objects.
Support small presses.
Go through the masses of poems and other work that you've never revised or published.
Throw much away!
Finish polishing the (very) long novel, acquire your third agent, and write a short novel.
Publish a book of poems.
Sell a novel.
Quit dithering and decide what to do about reprints.
Volunteer. Do secret things that feed the soul.
Do much less social media.
Hunt down what is meaningful.
