Embracing a New Year


I will be brief today. With the holidays and family and travelling I have been busy, and I am sure you all have been as well.

But now it’s January, and come Monday the grind will resume its daily habit as we all get swept through another year.

I look back at 2014 and am so happy to say it has been an amazing year. My son is at the brink of speech, my family moved to a house, I have improved my health tremendously through exercise. I started a new novel, and completely revised an old one. I’ve had wonderful moments with friends and family all year long. There are some things that challenged us, especially when my husband broke his ankle. But we rose to the challenge and he has fully healed, and I now know what strength we both possess.

Some of you may recall last January I posted about starting a graphic novel. That project went on the backburner as I helped my husband heal and then as we moved, and then as I focused primarily on writing. I still would like to do a graphic novel one day, but for now I will continue to focus on my writing. I am anxious to keep working on my current project, the urban fantasy gay romance, and write more short stories on the side.

As I look to 2015, I am excited. I plan to keep moving my writing career forward. I plan to keep exercising and get stronger. But I don’t want to claim anything as a resolution, except for this: I want to continue to spend time with my friends and family, even through we have moved farther away. We will celebrate two weddings this year, and I can’t wait to be a part of them.

Happy New Year, all.
