Happy New Year 2013!




Happy New Year friends! I hope you have many, many good memories from 2012 and will create awesome ones this year.

What are your goals?
What did you accomplish?
Are you re-gifting a goal from 2012 to 2013?

 I want to get this MS off to the agent who asked for it. I want to write/edit two more books. I'm re-gifting the goal of writing three books in a year.
