New writing beginnings


Happy New Year! 

2015 was a wonderful writing year, both with the publication of my newest novel And The Wind Whispered and with the ongoing daily writing that this blog provides. 

The book’s successes provided opportunities to meet many other writers across the country, sometimes to share a table at an autographing session or in a panel discussion; sometimes just to meet one-on-one to discuss writing styles and experiences.  Regardless of what genres writers choose or from where they (and their ideas) originate, each has similar tales about the joys and agonies of the writing process.  That, of course, is why I also enjoy writing this blog, in order to present just a few of the feelings, experiences, and bits and pieces of advice and wisdom that writers and artists are willing to share – both with one-another and with the world.

And so I end this first entry of 2016 with these wise words about new beginnings from writer Arnold Bennett:

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life.  You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”

May 2016 bring successes and joys in writing and in life.  Many “writer’s moments” lie before you.
