The initial idea

I've never been good with New Year's resolutions.  They usually end up being kinda lame and die out some time in early February.

So, a few years ago I started making my resolutions on my birthday instead.  It worked better, but 2009 had so much going on that my birthday passed without any big goal being set.

As the new year draws closer, I decided to be ambitious.  I love writing and it has unfortunately taken a backseat to other pursuits recently.  To get back on track I issued myself this challenge; to write one poem a day for a year.  That's 365 poems by December 31, 2010.

Will I succeed?  That's the question, isn't it.
