This Week’s Sunday Summary Writing Prompt: How will you achieve your 2023 writing resolutions?
For the last few weeks, most of us have been thinking about what we want to accomplish with our writing in 2023, a.k.a. our “writing resolutions.” But today, let’s consider and reflect on how we can make those resolutions a reality, and what we need to do to make them happen. Making a writing resolution is one thing while figuring out how to keep it is another. So, today, write a journal entry or a piece of short fiction about how you’re going to achieve your 2023 writing resolutions. Once you can visualize them, you are in a better position to achieve them.
Read last Sunday’s summary post, Reflect on 2022, and Writing Resolutions, to get more ideas for where to start with today’s writing prompt.

Current Reads And Book Reviews
I’m currently reading The Light Pirate by Lily Brooks-Dalton and The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg. And this coming week, I plan to read Babel by R.F. Kuang and Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.
Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
STEM nerds, you’ll want to read this one. First, you’ll want to read it because you will be able to pick apart and question the science and math in this book via new frontiers and studies, even if they are mostly only imaginary. And second, the author’s enthusiasm for all things STEM-related is infectious. You’ll get excited to learn new things again.
NON-STEM readers, you’ll want to read this book, too. While it dives pretty deep into STEM-related material at times, the characters, plot, and narrative will keep you entertained and empathizing with the main character’s plight, as well as the plight of his surprising companion.
However, the STEM-related deviations weren’t always necessary to the overall narrative and became a bit tedious to read sometimes. Luckily, however, that didn’t happen too often.
Overall, this book was fun to read and offered interesting answers to the question of whether or not we are alone in the universe.
