That was a really long break I took. First over Christmas, and then my family events. Not only did my mom pass away but my youngest son graduated from Marine Boot Camp. Half the family was in Minnesota for her funeral, the other half in San Diego for his graduation. Crazy stuff. Life can be so bizarre sometimes. Thanks for all the caring thoughts and support given to me during this difficult time. I have really really appreciated it.
But now I'm back and looking forward to another fun and exciting blogging year. How many writer friends will find agents this year? Or get publishing contracts? Or see their book released? And sell millions? And get on the NY Times bestseller list? Hey, we might as well be thinking big, right?
My writing goals for this year are pretty ordinary, however. Finish "House of Diamonds", set up a blog tour in advance of its release, write daily instead of sporadically. I'm not getting any younger and I want to get more books published.
What are your writing goals for the year? Small as well as big? Next post I'm announcing a submissions contest, something to motivate for the new year, so watch for it in a few days!
