Well wasn’t 2013 a year of ups and downs? It’s been a good year for work but a bad year for writing. It’s been a good and a bad year for family. It’s been a weird and heart-shattering year for my personal affairs. Same as anyone’s year, really.
I did however get a tower of books for Christmas and who could ask for better? Plus all that romance melodrama is excellent writing material!
I’m not really one for New Year’s Resolutions, but I do have a couple:
1. Get at least one draft finished (I’m almost done with Once Bitten)
2. Meet more writers.
That’s pretty much it. Luckily we have a great writing retreat up here – Moniack Mhor – so both of those could easily be achievable.
Whatever 2014 has in store for us, we’re never thrown anything more than we can handle, so stride forth with dread purpose and grab those hardships by the proverbials! Beat those deadlines into submission! Do ALL THE THINGS!
And just as a head’s up, it’s only 10 hours to new Sherlock over here… already quite excited!
