Happy New Year!

There are less than 24 hours left to 2018 and my heart is warmed by hope and promise as I look to welcoming in 2019.  December has been full of wonderfully charming blessings: from holding my daughter's hand as she had her ears pierced, to magical Yule gatherings, to hosting three teen girls for a holiday sleepover.  The blessings of the season have given me many fond memories to cherish.  Those memories have given me lots of fodder for writing. 

A Writing Marathon

This night I am writing all of my month's blog posts in one stretch.  I started at 11pm and it is now 4:15am.   I feel like I'm participating in a NaNoWriMo writing sprint.  Yet progress on my NaNoWriMo novels has been given time to hibernate for the past few weeks.  I will resume my work on them Wednesday.   There's one I want to finish by January 6th ~ "Little Christmas"/Epiphany/Tres Reyes.  I'm grateful that "Little Christmas" is a thing, since it's a Christmas story.  The other one will take a bit longer to finish, but I give myself 10 months to accomplish that goal.

Writing my posts as a single-night marathon is the only way I'll keep my record of writing a post a month for 12 months straight ~ a whole year!  Tomorrow night I'll be busy creating a vision board, helping to cook a community meal, paritcipating in a Yankee Swap and dancing with my neighbors.  What will you be doing?  I hope it'll be fun and meaningful for you! 

May 2019 shower you with blessings big and small! 

Let's be friends
