The New Year is starting off well for me. Okay, I’m exhausted, and I burnt myself out writing Christmas stories. (I learned an important lesson about limits, though. A dozen shorts in under three weeks is too much for me.)
First, at church a lady stopped me to say how much she loved my book, Dragon Hoard. That’s the first time that’s ever happened to me. It completely caught me off guard–I smiled about it all day. I’m smiling again as I type this, remembering.
And on the same day I found out I won the December Thinkerbeat Story Bites contest, for my short story, The Gift.
Here’s hoping that 2016 is a year that sees us all improving our skills and meeting our goals.
