Resolutions and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves!

Wit Without Wisdom, Ep. 02


Hey, so we’ve reached February. That time-honored month where we get to replace the burden of resolutions with the burden of getting the romance thing just right. But be thankful because expensive flowers, carb-filled chocolate, and long restaurant lines serve as an excellent distraction from our disappointment from an early resolution failure.

The good news is that we’re not alone. Studies suggest that by February, nearly 70% of “resoluters” have abandoned their pesky self-promises. So, we’re all trying to move on and forget we ever made them . . . much like the way we wish to forget that unfortunate Hanson Um-bop CD we purchased.

So, in this episode, SK, Kat, Shanny (whatever her name is these days) and Raymond chat about everything “resolutions.” We’re not trying to make anyone (especially ourselves) feel bad. We just want to demonstrate that we all pretty much suck at them and why we probably shouldn't care . . . or completely give up.

Here are some of the show highlights:

  • What “Org” word does Shanny want on her resolution list.

  • The resolutions EVERYONE sets.

  • Why rewards don’t keep you motivated.

  • Why you should set (or reset) your resolution list using the “Toddler Method.”

  • And how you can see Shanny and Raymond’s fitness journey in images.

Did you make any resolutions for 2018?

Do you have any tips to help Raymond stay motivated?

We’re S.K. Anthony and Raymond Esposito, your hosts at Writers After Dark. She writes those urban-fantasy–superhero-badass-chicks-with-a-touch-of-romance stories and he writes those dark fiction-things-that-go-bump-in-the night tales.

When it comes to writing, we don’t agree on genre, but we do agree that . . . we love stories . . . and one of the things we love most: hanging out in our mostly-sober, Writers After Dark studio and debating the merits of just about anything related to the story of life.
