New Thing #365: Writing A Book

Well, here we are. A year of New Things.

First of all, a big THANK YOU to everyone who has clicked even once to read what I've written here.

I enjoy doing this, but I enjoy it even more knowing that people are reading and hopefully enjoying it too. (And thanks for all of the positive feedback. That just plain ol' makes my day.)

As I've alluded to before, I'm really proud that I've kept this up for the whole year - I've never before done something every day for a full year.

And I'm hoping to keep up that writing momentum..

Because I have a big project in store for 2014...

I love to write.

You probably knew that.

I've always dreamed of writing a book.

But that's all it's ever been - a dream.

So this year, I'm going to try to make that dream a reality.

I'm not going to resurrect the sports blog…yet. (I do enjoy writing about sports, so I'm not saying it's out forever…but I am going to turn those creative energies elsewhere.)

I'm not going to write here every day for a year. (But may become a place to update you on my progress. I'll keep you informed about that through social media…so make sure you're following along. Especially twitter: @jsucich.)

I won't be doing 365 Facebook status updates in 365 days (my personal challenge 2 of the 3 years prior to 365 New Things In 2013).

I am going to take all of that time I've spent on those writing ventures and dedicate it to a book.

I don't know how it will go - but I'm going to at least give it a go. It would be a huge regret if I never tried it. If there's one thing I wish I had done more of in 2013, it's writing. (And yoga, and take an IQ Test, and visit the Bunker Hill Monument, and curling. I really wanted to try curling.)

I appreciate every bit of support you all have given me - if you're reading this, I know you're someone who will continue to support me in future endeavors.

I'm really excited about this, and I'll figure out a way to keep you updated.

And hopefully one year from now we'll be celebrating the success of 2014's New Thing.
