Happy New Year! I hope your holiday season went well and you parlayed that into a great start to the new year.
The end of 2015, the fun time of the year for me (October – December), brings the holiday season, football season, and cooler temps. And as usual, those months raced by and brought us here to the new year.
For me, the good news is that we still have a couple of more months of winter. Now, I know that’s not good news to everyone out there, but my reason is purely in the spirit of creativity. I find the Winter to be the best time of the year to write – and reading for that matter. If I’m not too distracted by the NFL season and playoffs, I usually get a lot accomplished.
Many projects are on the books, so to speak, and deadlines are on the calendar. But those things are for me in the solitary confines of the writing world.
As for all of you, no matter where you are, covered in snow or basking in warmer temperatures, I just want to wish you all a great start to the new year and I hope you accomplish any and all the goals you have set!
Happy writing, reading, and creating!
With Thanksgiving coming and going before we knew it, December is here and moving fast. From a writing perspective, setting goals and self-imposed deadlines, and keeping them, is a task, with everything else going on during the holidays. For me, getting the print copy of Night Dreams-E1 The Beginning, proofed and edited (formatting), has taken the biggest amount of time. Hoping to get that out to family and friends for Christmas. Goodreads and WordPress giveaways to follow soon after…stay tuned.
I am also finishing up my novella Floor Four (part of Purgatory-13 Tales of the Macabre). It is coming along nicely and will easily be over 20,000 words when all is said and done. Details on that to follow soon.
So, with my plate full going into the end-of-the-year rush, I’ll be keeping busy, and looking forward to hearing how your writing, and or reading, is going?
