I'm still standing ...

I haven't posted for almost a year.  Trust me when I tell you that the thoughts and musings are still there, but I just have not had the creative urge to put those thoughts and musings into words.  We had a lot of changes this year ... we moved, the kids changed schools, I hired a part-time nanny, I am on a Board of Directors and am now on a State Bar Committee.  2012 offered me the ugly side of life ... depression, malcontent, death, financial distress, familial distress.  I have felt likes. I have been knocked down every time I get back on my feet.  But a new year is fixin' to start and I'm ready to shake off 2012 and embrace all of the promise that 2013 has to offer.  So hopefully I will have more to share this necxt year.  To the extent you've hung in there, thank you.

I have some writing goals for next year, and hope to complete a full book.  I haven't decided whether I will focus on one of my novels (character outlines are done but story outlines need help) or a collection of short stories.  Given my recent inability to focus on anything for more than a nanosecond, I suspect it will be short stories.  Early drafts of them may show up here as I try them on for size.

Happy Holidays.  Happy New Year.
