New Year's Eve Revisited

Gentle Readers, my night at the wedding is over. I am home from the mountain, safe and sound, snug in my jammies. Someday I will tell you that story.

I have heard this is the first time in 19 years the moon will be full on New Year's Eve. I am very excited because now I can go forward into the new year with a clean slate.

Sort of starting from scratch but not. Now that I know I'm done with the catering, (I promise you, no matter how long I live here, I will never cater another event,) I can concentrate, really, fully, on my writing.

That's daunting, to say the least. I remember the shit I went through to finish Masquerade. And I was only doing it for fun. And then thinking it was so perfect that it would be scooped up in a heartbeat. HA! Said the agenting gods, FIE ON YOU! YOU HAVE A LOT TO LEARN! And I did. I do.

But now that I know what I have to do, maybe it won't seem so daunting a task. There are many, many talented writers sharing their creative experiences on the blog and I have learned so much it's just like being back in college for me. I hope you know that you, gentle readers, are always welcome to comment. If I met you in person, we'd probably be sitting at my kitchen table with coffee.

I hope, and pray, that if you go out tonight, you are careful. It's New Year's Eve.
Need I say any more?

I also hope that you each get a kiss at midnight, a smile when you wake up, and the blessing of whichever God you worship that you are safe and happy and healthy in the coming year.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year :D

PS: I like your version of the Agenting Gods. More people should use words like 'Fie on you.' Hehe. :)

That is my favorite "F-word" phrase. Hehe.

Happy New Year! I'm glad you got home safe. I want to hear that story now. Last night as we drove home, there was low cloud cover, all the city lights were on, and the snow was reflecting the light. It looked like day! It was pretty and the freeways were clear. A lovely ride home. :)
