I can't believe how long it's been since I blogged last. Long enough, in fact, that I wasn't sure I remembered my password. As you can see, I managed it and here I am.
It's a new year. Amazing, really. So much happened last year--good and bad.
The good: I was published! I'm endlessly grateful to Cobblestone Press for buying my work. I couldn't have asked for a more positive first publishing experience. And I've met so many wonderful people through Cobblestone and through writing.
The bad: I've lost focus. Part of this is because of the day job. There have been a number of shake-ups there lately. Plus, since I write and edit eight hours a day, sometimes writing is the last thing I want to do when I get home. I've also let some things become distractions unnecessarily.
My goal for the year is simply this: focus on the writing. I'm going to do my best to shut out the static, the distractions.
I wrote today and it felt wonderful.
In other news, I'm attending the upcoming Utah RWA conference next month. I'm excited about all the speakers and hope to get a lot of good information I can use in my writing.
