Finances
Now that the Christmas behemoth is behind us, why not just jump on over to the other extreme, eh? You’re probably broke anyway. Or even better, you can read an article about someone who went through all the hard parts so you can skip straight to the lessons learned. However, you may want to go through the not spending part to break out of the habit of spending. Just a thought.
Reading
Okay, this is fairly self-serving, I admit it. What I’m hoping this offers is an entryway into the reader’s mind. One of the questions facing writers is what a reader wants. This should hopefully clear up some of that mystery.  
Apps
There may be a few here that you haven’t heard about. I’m going to try out the photography apps, because I usually don’t use my phone to take pictures. Nothing beats a real camera for beautiful details, but I could be wrong. There may be a post on this waiting to happen. 
Efficiency
I don’t make resolutions on new years. It seems to limit you to making all changes all at once, at the beginning of the year, just so that you can forget them about a week later. These are some interesting ideas here that you might want to try – whenever I see a list, I tend to pick and choose what to try. Apparently checking email immediately upon waking is a bad thing – I’m going to try not to do this and see if life improves.
Creativity App
This app claims to boost your creativity by providing that “coffee house” allure anywhere you go – for when you don’t have time to go to a cafe, but still want to recreate those special moments.

Writing
Why You Should Be Writing Short Fiction
I don’t read short fiction, and on that basis, I don’t write short fiction, and that was that. Then I read this post – from 2012 no less, but it’s still valid – and realized that I shouldn’t make decisions based on my own self-centered, short-sighted preferences. Time to fire up that pen.
