Oh the weather outside is frightful.....
I love the beginning of the year. It’s a clean slate, a chance to clear the decks and
start fresh. So while I was housebound during this last horrible spate of blizzards here in Denver, I did just that. My writing desk is clear, my house is clean, my laundry is almost caught up. My 2006 expense log is complete, I’ve made air and hotel reservations for upcoming signing trips. The husband is back at work and after I finish this last chore, the week’s blog entry, I may actually get to write the next Anna Strong chronicle. Oh, happy day!
This Friday I leave for Southern California. I’m signing at a bookstore in Glendale called Mystery & Imagination
with fellow author John Ringo.
I’m reading the first in his Dragon series, THERE WILL BE DRAGONS, and really enjoying it. He actually has several series going and is a NY Times Best Selling Author. Maybe some of his success will rub off on me. I plan to listen very closely to everything he says.
Anyway, hope you all enjoyed the holidays. Did you make any resolutions? I don’t do that anymore. I put enough pressure on myself without writing “Things I Must Do in the New Year” and posting it. The lists used to become more grim indictments of things I didn’t get done than incentive to actually accomplish anything. Now I just greet each new year with hope that it will be better than the one before. And truth be told, 2006 was a darned good year.
So I’m pretty optimistic.
