Last year I had no New Year’s Resolutions. This year they are longer than my arm.
Some are typical (eat less, exercise more), others less so.
There is one that I would like very much to keep, but not sure how practical it is in my position. But hey, stuff it, I’m going to give it a go:
My new year’s resolution is to try to avoid writing any articles that involve fretting about Manchester .
Never once have I seen an article in a Manchester paper fretting about what Birmingham is up to and I wish we didn’t do it so much.
Yes, I know I’ve written about Peter Saville as part of the creative director stories and I do refer to Manchester as an example of good self-promotion. But, if these issues come up again, (and I expect they will) I will have to think of other examples and ways to write them.
