I can’t believe 2015 has already begun. As I look over my list of resolutions for last year, I realize that I’m pretty much stuck on the second one, which was to finish the book I’m writing. It’s currently in the stage that determines just how close it is, or isn’t, to being finished: editing. It’s the strangest thing, after months of being glued to my laptop, to hit the print button and drop off that stack of pages with my editor. So as I wait for it to come back covered in red ink, I think about what a great year 2014 was. It was full of the ups that make life worth living and dotted with the downs that remind me of what truly is important. If you’re like me and you need to carry your some of your resolutions forward, just remember that as long as you’re being true to yourself, you’re exactly where you need to be. And if your heart is still telling to pursue those things, then press ahead.
Here’s to pressing ahead: Resolution Number 1: Publish “Between the Starlight”. Resolution Number 2: Find the people who would be touched by the stories I write. Resolution Number 3: Share what I learn about the writing process. Resolution Number 4: Remember where it all comes from. Believe me: it’s not me.
