looks like we made it

There was some question as to whether or not the world would actually make it to 2013, and it would appear the answer is, yes. It's here. I saw the ball drop myself. Well, not in person. I watched the annual Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve and saw the televised dropping of the ball in New York. I can only assume it was a live telecast and not something pre-recorded. But what do I know? The world might have ended while I was out sick with the flu.

Then again, the neighbors were shooting off fireworks, the kids went to a party, and texts from all over hit my phone in the minutes after midnight, so I guess the world is still spinning, and I'm officially a year older.

I have great plans for 2013, since the lack of a new Mayan calendar has left us wide open with a wealth of possibilities. For one, my book comes out in early spring, so that alone will keep me busy in the coming weeks. Next, I have another book in the works, and if I can keep the momentum rolling, I have a few projects planned for after that. With any luck, 2013 won't just be the year of the snake, but the year of the writer, too.

That is if I can ever get rid of this damn flu bug!

Until the next time...I'll be dosing myself with vitamin C.
