Kick The Old Year Out

Five of these since January 2012

Five of these since January 2012

Well, 2012 is on that proverbial banana peel to being GONE. Kaput. Here no more.

Geesh…I was just getting used to writing 2012 on checks and now I’ll have to start over again.

2013. Weren’t we recently worried about Y2K and celebrating the beginning of a new millennium? That was, if our world didn’t end?

Here we are. Anxiously counting down the hours now to kick out 2012 and welcome 2013. My next post will be next year. I can’t believe it.

While I might wonder where 2012 went to, I think my photo says it all. I’ve added books I’ve written to my bookshelf and those books are finding their way into readers’ hands. 2013 will see me doing the same though I’d love to add a few activities, like maybe a vacation even if only for a few days.

This is also the time of the year for those New Years’ resolutions. Are you one of those people who create a list of resolutions (usually involving more exercise and less eating) and within a week or two can’t remember what those grand statements are?

Too often those resolutions get thrown out the back door with the last of the Christmas decorations, or the now stale Christmas treats…

So I’ll give you 2 resolutions I’ve made though my list isn’t finished. After all I have one more day…

Sayonara 2012

Sayonara 2012

Resolution #1:  Get the next 4 Soul String Saga novellas ready to publish.

Resolution #2:  Finish the third Dessert Dames novel.

Resolution #3:  Take a vacation—if only for a few days.

While I continue to work on resolutions and writing, I hope you have a great time kicking out 2012 and ushering in 2013.

Happy New Year!!

    I’m thinking of resolutions, too, Casey. I don’t think I’ll post them because I might be able to keep them. lol Happy New Year!

  2. Sandy Says:

    Casey, I think I accidentally deleted your email address, but I did post a blog at Romance Books 4 Us on the 29th about CNN Heroes.

  3. You definitely deserve a vacation, so make sure you keep that resolution. Great job on all you got done this past year and here’s to a wonderful 2013! Can’t wait for a hug tomorrow!

  4. I like your resolutions. My daughter asked me the other night what my 2013 resolution was and I said: in 2012 I wanted an agent and I got one. For 2013 I want my book to find a publisher. I’m hoping I get my wish. I’m working on editing that book right now and crossing my fingers that I do the best job possible.
    Happy New Year, Casey.

  5. Sandy,

    If you keep your resolutions, you’ll definitely be among the elite. Good choice of heroes on your post. May 2013 be all you want it to be.

  6. Stacey,

    Unfortunately, the vacation one is the one I’ll least likely be able to keep.:-( Other two I can control.

    Looking forward to tomorrow also. Weather appears to be cooperative.

  7. Edie Ramer Says:

    Great resolutions! Congrats on getting so much done. I hope you can get the few days off in 2013.

  8. Patti,

    I hope you find a publisher also. Or your agent does.

    Is it still raining in CA? I remember a New Year’s Eve out there when the rains came so fast and furious we encountered mudslides and flash floods and the most magnificent triple rainbow over the ocean I’ve ever seen.

    Have a great 2013!

  9. Wow, Casey, we don’t get that sort of weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area. No, the rain is over for the next week or so. It’s a cool 45 degrees, a crisp morning with a clear blue sky. I’m going up to the barn and see my tiny little pony.

  10. Patti,

    Wasn’t far away with that weather. Morgan Hill area and then Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur. Our San Francisco time was lovely.

  11. Edie,

    Yeah, well I’m trying to keep up with you. Absolutely love the cover of latest Miracle book–that dog and the pie. I bought it last night. Here’s to many sales for you.

  12. Excellent post, you seem to be so focussed! And your right. It would be nice if we could make reachable goals for resolutions. Perhaps choosing things that we want to stick with. As writers, that should always be our stories. We’re working hard on the cleaning process of our book, and we are putting it in the hands of a professional editor for the very first time. (Jan. 3) So, for us, this is a great New Years start! Best of luck with yours! By the way, sounds silly, but love the snow falling on your blog. Was happy to realize it was snow. Wondered if I was seeing spots as I’m working at 3:30 a.m. lol

  13. Inion,

    The snow comes every year around the holidays courtesy of WordPress. I really have nothing to do with it but I like the effect, especially since it doesn’t need shoveling or concerns over driving.

    A good editor is essential and I have at least two different ones go through mine plus beta readers and still tiny things get through.

    Happy New Year and good luck with the next step in writing. 🙂

    I love your resolutions. I only have one on my personal list, which is to sell my current house and build a new one. Professionally, I will make time each day to write on my new book.

    Happy New Year, MJ!

  15. Anne,

    Your resolutions are understandable. The one most under your control is the book. He’s hoping both get achieved.

    Happy New Year to you also.

  16. Casey, very impressive! I hope sales are going well on your books.

  17. Lorna,

    Each month is better than the previous and I find it interesting that each month a different one will sell more than the others.
