The first Wednesday of every month I participate in The Insecure Writer’s Support Group. #IWSG. This is one AMAZING group of talented beginning writers, established writers, and professional authors.

I stopped making New Year’s Resolutions a few years ago and moved on to creating New Year’s Goals. This year I am also planning to have a ‘word’ of the year. A word, that reminds me to focus on those goals. It took me a few years to get serious about my goal list but I believe 2013 was one of my most successful thus far at achieving those goals.
