It’s hard to believe that 2017 is almost over, but it is. The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Years always pass with a fury around here, reminding me of a certain holiday fave:
5 Holiday Gatherings
4 Family Birthdays
3 Winter Concerts
2 Events at Daughter’s School
Then, One Day til it’s Back To School
The fact that I am a music educator by day has a lot to do with the feverish pace of this season. Report cards, concerts at school, rehearsals after school, etc, mean that the already hectic, but festive, season is all the more so. I admit to the neglecting of this blog during this time of year, but sometimes it can’t be helped.
However, it also affords me time for reflection on 2017, and goal-setting for the year to come. Thoughts of my hopes and dreams, and realities which are just on the horizon. I can finally see from where I stand today, and that is a glorious feeling!
It’s going to be a big year, I think, for me as a writer. My Contemporary Time Travel, WORDS IN THE WINDOWSILL is due to be released sometime this year. My agent is working with me on #PrisonBreakADK to get it ready for submission, I am “this close” to finishing up Book One of my Harbor Bells Trilogy, and I have yet another novel idea just begging to be plotted out (When the idea for it came to me, it woke me from a dead sleep, insisting I write it down).
I literally cannot wait to see where this year takes me.
Happy New Year, everyone! Do you have anything coming along in 2018 that you are excited about? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
