Happy New Year 2014

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

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”!
