Holy crap, October is almost over! The end of the year always seems to fly by, doesn’t it? Not the dreary winter months of January, February and March but the fun months—Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! (Come on, that’s what we really think when we hear October, November and December if you’re American).

It also means that NaNoWriMo is around the corner. Once again, I will be participating. And once again, I will be using it to write my Outlaw Queen Christmas fic.

So, what is it about? Glad you asked!

Traveling, Traveling, Traveling…

It’s February and I already have a lot of trips planned for 2017, it seems.

In fact, it started this past weekend with a trip up to Corning, NY to visit my cousin and her kids. Corning is a quaint little city best known for glass and other kitchenware, but it’s pretty picturesque. It’s also wine country and I’ve been meaning to go on a wine tour up there.

Maybe this summer?

So we’re a week into the New Year. As usual, I’m going to list my anticipations for the year. For any newcomers, I don’t like the term “resolution.” So I say “anticipations” instead.

Ready? Here I go…

Continue to post regularly here on WordPress.

Post a flash fiction a day on my tumblr.

Work on the Big Project and self publish it by the end of the year.

Work on the Christmas Project and self publish it by Christmas.

Get back on a regular fanfiction posting schedule.

Network with more writers, both in fandom and out of it.

Continue to try to read a book a month.

Write more book reviews for my blog.

I think that’s it for now.

Bring it on, 2017.

I’m ready.
