Happy New Year!
Family and friends remain priority because it's no secret those are lifelines to good living. Roses in my garden. Such diversity, and that's what makes the world go around.
When I look back on 2008, I find it was more productive, as far as writing goes, than I first thought. New stories and new beginnings were the lifeline. But now, I have the task of finishing the manuscripts I started in 2008 and submit in 2009.
So polishing those manuscripts are a portion of my 2009 goals, then submit to an editor or agent.
I wish you the best in 2009.
