I have new writing goals for this year concerning Wednesday Thoughts, as readers have given to me thoughtful suggestions about what you would like to hear from me. First, a suggestion was made to have a theme that would run for a couple of my weekly entries so if there is an idea introduced one week, it might continue the next week with an enhanced or a different angle. Second, although some of the best journalism read are long developed articles, I have been encouraged to reduce my entries 50-75 words occasionally from my usual 225-250 word count. Finally, I have been asked to reinforce in my Wednesday Thoughts something that may be important to the Craig population that week. In other words, write something that is Craig specific. Therefore, starting next week, let us see if I can reach closer to my objectives and goals.
