This year has positively flown by. Somehow, I managed to produce three novels and three novellas, while traveling to the UK and Scotland and taking a wonderful tour of western national parks. I like to use the end of the year as a time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished, and I think my proudest accomplishment may be working with the AARP and its sponsors to help establish an elementary school reading tutor program. There may have been bad periods, but this isn’t the moment to look back on them. Celebrating the good helps us move forward. In a few weeks, we’ll be planning what we’d like to do with the new year. Start with looking back on the old! What did you accomplish?
