Don’t forget – today’s the last day to enter the Yours to Take Giveaway.
Yep, another year has come and gone and I’m another year older. We celebrated at Mythos this weekend like we always do, but it was touched with sadness since the Joplin tornado last year. Some areas are still unrecognizable, even though we lived there for over two years while attending Missouri Southern. Our first apartment complex as a married couple is gone and I wouldn’t even stop for a second glance if I didn’t know the intersection where we used to live. They’ve rebuilt a lot, but there are still mangled trees and empy lots that break my heart every time we go.
This will be an interesting year. There’s several changes in the works on the home front that I can’t talk about yet that may or may not happen. I’m also working on a secret project (that doesn’t involve a particular book, so don’t get your hopes up that I’m finally getting around to xyz!). I’ll share more as I can.
In the meantime, I really haven’t been writing much. As a result, Lady Blackmyre is about ready to take the whip to me. I’ve got another two weeks of guest posts to finish and then I’ll return to her story as soon as I can. I’m well into Act 3 so I’m very close to finishing the first draft. It’s just a matter of working through some issues and finding “the end.”

I know the feeling. I live here, but it’s easy to get mixed up without all the familiar landmarks. Especially since so many street signs are still gone. Melancholy, indeed.
Happy Birthday, Joely! Here’s to a fresh new year of growth and change. May your family be well and happy, your weight loss goals be met, and your writing be fruitful. 🙂
