Changes For Me and For Make Mine Mystery

A New Year brings changes. One drastic change in my life was being let go from the law firm I worked for as an administrative assistant over 38 years. I'll be on unemployment for a bit until I can find another job, so I won't make as much money. I won't spend as much either, which is probably a good thing. My closet is too full, and I have tons of items with no place to put them.

The change will mean more time for writing and getting caught up on neglected housework, so it could be a very good thing.

A change is also occurring here at Make Mine Mystery, and I know it will be a good thing. We now have found a blogger to take over the 2nd and 4th Mondays slot. Her name is Sylvia Dickey Smith, and she'll be an excellent fit for our group.

In the meantime, before she does her first post, you can check out more about Sylvia by clicking on her picture, which I've put at the head of the righthand column here, so you can't miss her. I hope you come back often to read our posts and also be sure to welcome Sylvia on her first blog day here at Make Mine Mystery  next Monday, January 10.

Sorry to hear about the job loss. Even if it turns out to be wonderful, it's still a shock, I'm sure. Look forward to meeting Sylvia! (Figuratively.)

Look forward to Sylvia's posts. She is always interesting and informative on her blog and places where she has been interviewed. I agree that she is a good addition here.

Hope your writing is going well.

Thanks, all, for the welcome! Looking forward to learning lots, myself!

Morgan, a few years ago I decided to trust perfect timing. All goes well when events make sense. But when they don't--like an unexpected job loss--it forces me to hang on through the process. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, tie that knot at the end of your rope and hold on! Best wishes for you during this process!
