Every New Year

Every new year I sit down with my notebooks and my pens and a slew of new ideas and thoughts on how I’m going to use what I’ve learned in the past year to do better in the new one.

2021 is no exception.

Like most of us, I’m just so danged glad that 2020 is over, I’m scibbling madly in my journal about all the ways 2021 is going to make up for it.

That might not be very fair to 2021– that’s a lot to ask of any year!

Honestly? I can’t really say that 2020 didn’t have its good points– I’m starting the new year (and the new decade, mind you) with a new laptop (ooooh, fancy!) a cute little trailer that I’m tricking out to be a badass little camper (because this nomad soul is getting long in the tooth and is tired of living out of the back of the car most of the year,) and a new tow vehicle for said trailer…which wasn’t on the to-do list, but a work truck from Oregon wasn’t up to date on the plan and totaled my hand-me-down baby one sunny August afternoon.

Ultimately, I ended up with a replacement vehicle that I expect will take me through another 10 years and another quarter of a million miles…if I stop driving so much, that is.

And naturally– the 2021 To-Do list includes plenty of writing-related items as well!

In addition to updating my mailing list service, finishing this website, and remembering to post to the social media accounts, I have books to write, series to finish, old series to add to, and new series to start!

And with no personal life to whine about at the moment, I really have no excuses for dilly-dallying.

Don’t worry…I’ll come up with some new excuses.

I do get easily distracted!


Happy New Year, Rockstars!

2021 is in the house!
