My Formal List of Demands for 2016

Posted by: R.L. Naquin
They've had enough of 2015, too.
On my last post here, I talked about the good things that happened in 2015, in spite of it being a difficult year. Now I’m back to tell you about how 2016 is going to go. Because make no mistake, I’m going into 2016 as the one in control this time. I will not allow two years in a row to push me around.

I’m looking the new year square in the eye and putting it on notice. Here’s a list of my demands:
  1. No less than four good hair days a week. Everybody deserves to feel pretty. 
  2. Cold flashes to offset the hot flashes that keep occurring. I’d enjoy some variety. 
  3. Cats that change their own damn litter boxes. Or at least a thank you now and then. 
  4. Seasonally appropriate weather. The world is already complicated enough. 
  5. Less chins on my face. One is enough for anybody, and I don’t want to be greedy. 
  6. No more political material on Facebook. Nothing but kitten videos and food porn from here on out. 
  7. More fancy grilled cheese sandwiches in my life. Cheese is awesome. 
  8. A universal disinterest in hashtags. #tiredofthisnonsense 
  9. Weddings and births instead of hospitals and funerals. Seriously. Let’s get this one right.
  10. A sudden and ginormous uptick in happy readers for my Mt. Olympus series and Monster Haven books. 
I have some expectations for myself, of course. I wouldn’t ask so much of the new year if I weren’t willing to put in some time and effort of my own. I’ll be working hard on writing new books, eating right, and getting plenty of exercise. I have all the things I need in place to hold up my end. I’m ready.

But 2016 better be ready, too. I’ll give it the next week to prepare, then I’m coming for it.
