Happy New Year 2014

1 Jan


I’m not one for making new year’s resolutions, they always seem so cliched.  But that’s not to say that I don’t like to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next.  A few weeks ago I was challenged to write a list of 31 accomplishments of last year.  I was so excited about that because I had a wonderful year in 2013.  I actually only wrote accomplishments since my retirement in May.  And, guess what… I exceeded the 31 count in only the 7 months between June and December!   I was psyched!  And since I truly believe that the best is yet to come (yes, a cliche), I am super-psyched about 2014!

I have already lined up several workshops, groups, and writing activities for the new year.  Here are my top five for January:

1.  Rate Your Story


2.  Start the Year Off Write


3. ReviMo


4. 12×12 Workshop


5. Writing for Children


In addition, I plan on entering three writing contests this month.

(Highlights, AKC Family Dog, and Rate Your Story).

Here’s a little cartoon I copied just for chuckles.


So, time to get busy… Like the poster says, “the best days of my life are all ahead”!

      HI Michelle! I do have pretty high goals, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Now, let’s just see how well I can keep up 🙂 See you around the web!

    Sounds like you’ve got your work cut out. I’m planning to do the Start the Year Off Write challenge and 12×12 too, on top of many other things I want to do. This is going to be a busy year, so it will take a lot of planning to get it all done. But I wouldn’t have it any other way and I bet you wouldn’t either. Happy new year!
