New Years Resolutions, 2003

1. I shall write, and attempt to publish, fiction.

That's the only resolution for this year. It's more than enough.

Why? Well... remember this LJ entry, from last July? "The music I want to hear hasn't been written yet." I have been increasingly unsatisfied with the popular fiction I've been reading over the past decade or so. The fiction I want to read hasn't been written yet.

That essay made me realize that there's a solution to that problem. If the world doesn't have what you want in it, the solution is to change the world. The fiction I want to read hasn't been written yet. So I'm going to write it.



SHIN

森里 == Morisato == (family name)
A pictograph of several 'trees' (木). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'There are many trees in the woods.'
