Hello, friends. It’s 2017. How do you feel about this new beginning? Ready to step over the carcass of 2016 and move on? What have you got planned for this year?
I make my plans for the year ahead at the end of the previous year, so for 2017, I made my plans in December, 2016. One of my goals is to write three books in 2017. Two will be part of the Virtue, Arizona, Series (stories about Faith, Hope, and Mercy), and I’d also like to write a book set in ancient Rome. I’ve done extensive studying on the period and think I’m about ready to write something set there. I may write more than three books, but my plan is for a minimum of three.
I’m also going to be taking a Master Class from Chef Gordon Ramsay, and completing several other college-level classes on various topics. I’m an inveterate learner and love to study literature, history, and biology in particular.
In 2017 I’ll also be doing some crafting, mainly cross stitch and knitting. I find it relaxing and it flexes other creative muscles.
I hope that whatever you do in 2017, you’ll be doing it with gusto and enthusiasm. I wish you the best.
