Happy New Year!

I'm sick today and sound like I've been smoking unfiltered Camels since birth. Luckily blogging doesn't require the use of my vocal chords! Before I head back to bed, I wanted to wish everyone Happy Healthy Holidays and a Happy, Prosperous, New Year! As I reflect back on 2009, there were many things that took priority over writing. (Work and settling my dad's estate the major two.) Now, on the cusp of 2010, I have freed up more time to focus on my goal of publication in 2010. Is it a realistic goal, considering getting published is not solely under my control? Maybe not. But if hard work and determination matter, you'll see my name in print.

Please share your goals for 2010 with me. It's been my experience that saying them out loud where others can hear, or writing them down where others can see, makes you more determined to achieve them. With the love and support of family and friends, we'll get there.....together. 

Best wishes!


  1. Hi Wendy!

    A healthy and prosperous New Year to you as well. I agree with you that writing down goals, speaking them, and holding a vision of them as if they've already been achieved helps to actualize them. As an aside, you and I both know you smoked Lucky Strikes, not Camels. I remember sitting in my crib across from your crib watching you with a bottle in one hand and a cigarette in the other. You were very chic; drinking and smoking and not a very good influence on me. I thought you were too cool for nursery school!!


  2. Wonder where I was when all this was going on!
    Probably I was supposed to be in charge babysitting both of you! But then I'll bet while all this was going on, I had ran outside for a cigarette! Amy
