Well, it’s the end of another decade. I’m not usually one to get all nostalgic and make New Year’s resolutions, because I know full-well that I will fail in mere weeks. But I applaud those who try, and applaud all the louder for those who succeed!
So - instead of resolutions, I make wishes. Hopes.
I hope to receive an offer of representation from a literary agent.
I hope-beyond-hope that The Flower Maiden will be displayed on a bookstore shelf near you! I know these things can take years and years, but I’m hoping 2020 is the one for me.
I hope I can continue writing well. The Flower Maiden was begun in the Fall of 2018, then finished and polished in only 11 months time. The story possessed me in a way my work has never done before. It demanded to be written; both for myself and for the future readers it may help through its narrative. I’ve already started on my next project - planning, researching, and even writing a few chapters. I don’t feel the same draw of the new project as I did to The Flower Maiden - yet - but hopefully that will come this year as I dive deeper into the story and the characters.
I hope more people find my little wisdom fable and are helped by the lessons in there too.
And finally - I hope that all of you reading (and writing) find your muse in the coming year as well! For some reason, the number 2020 seems mystical and supernatural to me. I'm hoping for great things. :)
May 2020 be a year of creativity!
