Cheers to 2013!

I'm a week late, but nonetheless, welcome to 2013!

It's so weird to me that 13 is an unlucky number, because I think this is actually going to be a very good year. I ended 2012 feeling really grateful and refreshed. I want to keep that momentum going.

My New Year's Eve traditions never really contain much. The only constants are champagne and the Twilight Zone marathon. That's right, I love the Zone. It reminds me of what great writing should be like. I love the twists and turns in the plots, the lessons and the very traditional opening, middle and conclusion of each story. Best of all, these morsels are delivered in 30 minutes. I have always been jealous of anyone who can write a great short story. And that's what good writing is: tight, to the point, and ever so moving. 

Compared to 30 minutes, a year is a lot of time. It provides us with countless minutes, hours, and 365 days to get our story in. While I warned in advance that I am not sure how much blogging I will be able to do here with my new job, it is important to me (call it a resolution if you will) to try and post more this year. My resolution last year was to write more, and I would say it was successful. While not everything was posted on this blog, I was able to be published on the Huffington Post, and was so thankful to continue my writing with Romantic Homes magazine and Made Woman. Let's hope this year is another one for great writing.

Wishing you a blessed and joyful year!
