Let me begin by wishing you all a Happy New Year!  There is something special about starting anew each January, starting with a clean slate and moving forward.  It is also the time of New Year’s Resolutions…I vowed this year not to make any of my typical resolutions.  In the past it has gone something like this – I should lose weight, I should get more exercise, I should go to sleep each night at a reasonable time.  By not making my annual list, I won’t feel guilty or disappointed when I fail.  On the other hand, if I happen to adopt some self-care strategies I will consider them a bonus.

One resolution I have toyed with however, is to write more.  I have several half written manuscripts, and several others still in the idea stage, and I bet those of you reading this column do as well.  As you contemplate the new year, think about where you see yourself at the end of 2017.  I hope writing for the Journal of Forensic will be on your radar.   Feel free to contact me at cindy.peternelj-taylor@usask.ca to discuss your ideas further.
