New Year's Changes & Writing Resolutions

Christmas is over and by the time we greet you on the next Monday's Sanctuary, we will officially be in 2011.  Time has flown.  From all of us at the Oasis, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us as we find sanctuary on our collective paths to publication.  Without you, we wouldn't have come together.  We wouldn't have pushed ourselves to share something with you each week.  Your comments have made us smile and think.  You've challenged us to be better writers and bloggers.  For all of that, we are SO GRATEFUL!  Truly.

And we want to thank you by making this Oasis more of what you want.  Please tell us.  Do you love Writer's Wednesday but could care less about Tuesday Tunes?  Do you appreciate the gratitude on Thankful Thursday but wish we had more give-aways on Friday Freestyle?  We welcome your suggestions on what you look forward to at the Oasis and what you could do without.  And if there's something we don't do that would really rock your world, let us know too.  We just might be able to deliver.

In the meantime, we leave you with a little poem, my writing resolutions for 2011:

I resolve to be patient,
I resolve to have faith,
That my writing is worthy,
And it's all worth the wait.

I resolve to accept
Things I cannot control,
Like rejections from agents, 
Without breaking my soul.

I resolve to spend time
In endeavors that matter;
And let my words flow,
Not trickle and splatter.

I resolve to eliminate,
My feeble excuses
For stalling, like twitter,
Or lackluster Muses.

The year's twenty-eleven,
The stars are aligned,
For good things to happen,
All in due time.

From all of us at the Oasis to all of you, we wish you success in the coming year!


  1. I love the format. Would also like a day where you post book trailers of books you are reviewing. That would be fun.

  2. That is a great idea, LM. Def. Thanks.

  3. Book trailers rock, LM. We could also use our Fridays to highlight newer book trailers to help promote an author.

  4. I think it's great the way it is, a little of everything of interest to writers. Book trailers would be a nice addition.

    Love your poem. :)


Breaths that matter...
