And So Begins a New Year


Do you make New Year's Resolutions?

I don't, but I do make goals and plans, for instance:

I need to start over with my Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery. The first draft is done, but going over it and editing is the next and most important step. 

I've already got a title for my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery--but no real idea about the plot. I do have some fuzzy ideas floating around in my brain, but nothing substantial.

A biggee is that I stay healthy enough to do my writing and be able to do all the events that I have planned and any new ones coming up. What I'm not doing is any long distance traveling. Oh there are some things I'd love to go to--but that's no longer in my future.

I do plan to spend time doing fun things with my husband and my family. Over this past year we lost one grown grandchild. Plus learning about all the famous people who died this past year, especially those who passed unexpectedly, brought home the fact that you never know how much time you have to spend with your loved ones.

For all of us, I am praying that our 2017 be peaceful and full of love and friendship.

Happy New Year!

Marilyn

It's often walking a tightrope trying to get our writing done and out, along with spending quality time with family and friends.

Yes, and I'm doing more with family and friends lately.

I often have the ideas but if I give them a title then I never get the book done. I am experiencing a career change this past year and my writing seems to have gotten lost. Am looking forward to getting back to it.
