New Year's resolutions often are promises we make to ourselves, family or others that lose steam and never quite come to fruition.
So this year, we want to hear our readers' 2018 New Year's resolutions, together with a plan of action for making the resolutions a reality.
In letters to the editor of 150 words or less, be specific about what you hope to accomplish in the New Year and how you intend to tackle it.
The clock is ticking on 2017, so send your letters, complete with resolutions and action plan, via email to nwi.com by 4 p.m. Thursday. Don't forget to include your full name, city/town of residence and a phone number where we can contact you to verify the letters.
If we receive enough, we'll publish the letters in the Sunday Forum section and online at nwi.com/opinion/letters.
