So THIS is What 2011 Looks Like

The first Monday of the New Year . . . poor day must feel like the redheaded stepchild of the calendar year. I'm certain there is no Monday more despised. Let's all try to be a little kinder to it with that in mind, K?

For the first post back, I've decided to stay away from talking about my "New Years Readjustments" (I refuse to call them resolutions), because I figure there's a good chance there's going to be a ton of them today.

I'm choosing to be daring and go against the flow.

That and well . . . I haven't actually written any down, so I'm not 100% sure what mine are just yet.

I do want to try to be more honest this year. So I have to admit I didn't get around to everyone who participated in the holiday blogfest. Not enough hours in the day. :o(

However, I did discover a gaggle of cool blogs in my attempt to do so. And I've managed to break into triple digits on the follower count myself. Yay!

Hi, Everyone! 

Okay, so I'm not going to make this a long post. My January plate is already full -- with beta reading, first draft revisions to get underway, and a manuscript to begin querying with my newly polished query letter. Booyah!

My guess is I'm not the only one facing a hectic month, so let's get it started off the right way.

Here's to wishing us all the best of luck in whatever adventures we choose to undertake in 2011!!

It's okay if you don't wish me luck back, I promise I won't remove myself from your followers list. But I WILL stick my tongue out at your picture when I see it (see, I'm doing good with this honesty thing! Last year I wouldn't have admitted that)

I WISH YOU LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Care Bears! Nice choice for a pic. Aren't they so cute? I want to get a tatoo of grumpy bear somewhere. It says everything. LoL.

Your January sounds exactly like mine. I'll start up querying again next week--though someone might have to remind me since I'm about to start draft #2 of my wip. ;)

I don't want to be the one to tell you this but you have to turn your horseshoe upside down so the luck won't run out. (Okay, this may not apply to pictures but if you have a real one, make sure the open part faces up.)

But Good Luck to you this year. May all your dreams come true.

I appreciate your honesty and in return I'll stick my tongue out when I see your picture!

I too hope to have a great year and not making any resolutions. Just forming a list of changes that I'd like to make.

Happy Monday. Lots of fun to be had. As for resolutions. I never bother with those. I just keep moving from week to week, and that works pretty darn good for me.

Happy Writing & Happy Eating.
