Well another year has come and gone, and now it’s time to welcome 2015. Wow. I remember being a kid and having trouble wrapping my mind around the concept of the new millennium, much less fifteen years beyond that. Time really does fly, whether you’re having fun or not. Fun is most certainly not why I haven’t posted anything new over the last few months. For some inexplicable reason, I decided to surrender to my penchant for learning and signed up for a number of online courses. I have therefore been up to my ears on lectures, exams, etc., and will soon be again. But I have not forgotten you.

I’m not sure about New Year’s Resolutions, but I have made some Promises To Myself. One of them is to make time for my writing. I was looking through some old emails and I stumbled upon two that I received from published authors. These people actually took time out of their busy schedules to let me know that they liked my short stories. Talk about humbling, and inspirational. I owe it to them, and to all of you, to take time out of my busy schedule to write.

So that’s just what I’m going to do. I have two pieces that I’m editing and I plan to submit. Hopefully *fingers crossed* at least one of them will be accepted for publication. I have over 20,000 words of the novel finished and, if all goes well, I should be done by March. Plus I have quite a number of short story ideas for this site. So stick around maybe we might just be able to celebrate the new year together.
