Years ago I stopped making New Years Resolutions and instead started looking for a word to be my guiding theme for that year. Usually that would lead to a few related goals (goals, not resolutions.

Well, I made it to December in more or less one piece. The last major draft of my book is finished. It’s with a friend now who is editing it for grammar and mechanics, but the story is done. No more changing it, at least not until a publisher gets a hold of it and… Continue reading Happy Christmas
