Happy New Year! Let’s Review, Shall We?
Happy New Year!
2013 has dawned and it’s time to begin anew.

No, I’m not talking “New Year’s Resolutions,” but it’s almost impossible not to get bit by the NYR Bug. It’s everywhere. Commercials are bombarding us with diet plans, exercise plans, fitness club memberships, videos, and such. And your friends are probably asking about your NYRs as subtle, or not so subtle, segues into listing their own ambitious goals.
But here, at the dawning of a New Year, possibly seen through the fog of the old year’s hangover, let’s take a moment to pause, take a breath, and celebrate the year just past. We’ve completed twelve months of ups and downs and we should give ourselves credit where credit is due instead of just brushing it aside and rushing off.
Since this is my blog, I’ll start. 2012 highlights included the sale of my novella, Collector’s Item, my son, Carl’s marriage to the lovely Erin, the passing of my furry companion, Lovejoy, corroboration with a wonderful group of women writers on a group blog, “Words, Women, Wisdom,” VRW’s For the Love of Writing Conference, JRW’s Writers Conference, a successful NaNoWriMo, first trip to the Porches with the Porches Divas, good health, friendship and love—yeah!
That’s enough about me.
Now it’s your turn!
