My One Resolution Word

So, I decided on my resolution. Corey from The Drowning Machine and Michael from Lazy Thoughts from a Boomer both gave me great ideas for my resolution word. Thank you both for your talent...and compliments! I decided I want this to be a year of action, so I'm go to choose a verb, and ENDEAVOR is going to be my word.

endeavor (as a verb) 1. to exert oneself to do or effect something; make an effort; strive 2. to attempt earnestly; try.

However, because I'm wordy...I can't ever really do anything with one word, just call me verbose...I want to develop my endeavors....so let's make an acrostic and start out with ENDURANCE because by golly, it's going to take endurance for me to endeavor...thank you very much, gentlemen!

E..ndurance
N..ew
D..istinctive
E..volution
A..esthetic
V..ibrant
O..riginal
R..isky?

Risky? Me? That might be a challenge for me, but I'm going to make an earnest attempt! ;) Oh lord, I think I'm getting a big head!

O.k., so I'll put my little acrostic over in my side bar and when I start to get dull and boring in '09 just remind me of my resolution!

And now I'll remind YOU that you have two more days to enter the drawings for one of two copies of Tilt-a-Whirl or a copy of A Carrion Death. So don't delay on that if you're interested in winning.

I'd also like to let you know that Alafair is recruiting some help. She ran into a conflict with her book title and needs to come up with a new one. Stop over to her blog and offer a suggestion if you have one!

Linda Fairstein has a new look on her blog and with her new look is a new contest where you can win a copy of Lethal Legacy (which I reviewed last week). You just need to share with her your favorite things about libraries.

As for me, I'm off to check out a link that Michael left for me so I can figure out this Twitter thing. I'm going to endeavor to be risky and try something new for my blog...this Twitter! :) Have a great weekend; if you're up north by us, stay warm!

Happy Reading!

The acrostic thingy is a neat idea. Good luck!

Of course, my wife knew the word. But, I had to look up acrostic. Cool... Best Wishes, Jen.
