Happy New Year!

I'm sure that blogs all over the blogosphere are busy posting about resolutions and reflections about our lives in 2006. So why should you think I would be any different? :-) Actually, my post about looking back is over here at WordyGirls. I'd love you pop over and give me your feedback.

It's easy to look back over a year and be disappointed with it, isn't it?

Congratulations on your sale!

I hope 2007 is a GREAT year for you and that you're happy with it when you look back at it this time next year. :)

I like your question for 2006...I've been driving around, cleaning the place, etc. thinking about this past year's best and worst, calculating the cups of coffee I drank :) etc.

My greatest and least satisfying writing moments are:
Satisfying: Going to the open house for grad school for the MFA Creative Writing Program I want to get into, then making the personal changes necessary to come up with a good application, reworking stories, etc.
Disappointments: Procrastinating on writing and creating a good workplace.

However, I was up til 3am last night, sipping eggnog and watching the fireworks and FINISHED the feared boxes/piles of paper. My place is open and clean, and now I know where to find my writing, my things!

Happy New Year to you!

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
