January 2015. New Years! The commencement, the kickoff, the grand opening. The time when everything seems fresh and new, clean and shiny, spotless and unspoiled, hopeful and exciting. The time that reminds us that we can have a clean slate, a new beginning, a fresh start. We can close last year’s book, with its marred cover, scratched-out chapters, pages of regrets and unkept resolutions, and open a new book. A book so new that the binding cracks when you open it.
This book, with its clean white pages, could be your magnum opus. You can write a greater book this year, because of all you learned from last year’s book. You have learned and grown, and you know your characters so much better now. You can begin again. All of those words that you wish you had never written (or spoken) — they were part of the old book. Write better words this time.
