I haven’t written anything in a while but I wanted to wish the universe a Merry Christmas. It’s been a tough couple of years. We lost my niece a year ago and my mother-in-law just this past December 2nd. She was ready though. She was in a lot of pain and she was tired. I don’t blame her. I know that she was a believer in God so I know that she’s in a better place. My head knows that; my heart still needs to accept it and know that I will see her again someday. I haven’t submitted one single word for publication all year. The last few rejections were too much for my aching heart to handle so I put it all on the back shelf for now.
I do not make New Year’s resolutions. The last one I made, I actually kept. I resolved to never make New Year’s resolutions again. And I haven’t. But I do have plans to up my game this year. I’ve taken on a photography business and have already done my first set of senior portraits. The family was extremely happy. I’m hoping to drum up more business next year for that. It’s something I enjoy anyway so it’s not like it’s really work.
For my writing? What’s next? I’m not sure. I’d like to spend some time working on my Works in Progress (at last count, there are ten). I’m pathetic, I know.
So for those of you who celebrate traditional Christmas, Merry Christmas. For those of you who don’t, I wish you the best for the rest of this year and for the year to come.
