As 2011 winds to a close, most people look back on what they have done throughout the year and what they could have done with the year. They also look to the New Year to make plans to improve and change what went wrong and what didn’t work in the old year… As 2011 closes I look forward to new doors opening that will lead to exciting, and sometimes scary places. After all the Unknown isn’t always sunshine and good things. If we didn’t have thunder and bad we may not always appreciate the good. My unknown is getting my first novel out of my hands and out into the scary world of bookstores, Kindles, and Nooks. After all one cannot be considered a writer if one writes only for oneself. So whether your goals are large or small, daring or safe…SET THEM! Step out of your comfort zone and don’t be afraid of what happens next… You may just be pleasantly surprised. To an interesting and intriguing 2012.
