Happy New Year!

It’s that time of year where we’re all setting our resolutions and hoping that we’ll stick to them this time (even if we didn’t quite manage it last year… or the year before…) So my resolution for 2017 is that I’m going to really try and keep on top of my writing, including this blog. I know I’ve said it before, but I do want to post more regularly.

So my 2017 new year’s resolution is that I’m going to write an update every week, a bit like a diary. I can’t promise they’ll always be long posts, or even interesting ones! But at least I’m going to try and make sure I write something every week. My plan is that this will help me to focus on writing and maybe help get me motivated to finish some of the projects I’ve been working on.

2017 is already going to be an exciting year for me, because I’ve got my first ever publication coming out! A short story I wrote (called ‘Mrs Frankenstein’s Void’) is going to be included in a collection by Hic Dragones, which is run by my two lovely neighbours Hannah and Rob, who have been really supportive and encouraging about my writing. The book is titled ‘Nothing’, and it’s going to be coming out later this year. I’m so excited!

I always find Christmas a bit of a difficult time of year, but I do love New Year (maybe that’s because my birthday is on New Year’s Day! hee hee!) January’s my favourite month of the year, because I always feel a bit of a buzz about all the new things that could be round the corner. Who knows what the new year might bring?

So that’s my new year’s resolution. What’s yours?

And since I’ve successfully stuck to my plan for Week 1 of 2017, I think I deserve a treat. I’m going to start reading the lovely birthday present I got from my brother and sister-in-law…
