I'd like to be able to say I'm starting the new year with a solid, well thought out plan of action, writing wise - but this year I'm not. Experience has shown me that although you can try and plot your path into the future, it's usually the suprise moments that propel you forward - sometimes faster than you would like, sometimes making you bounce off a few obstacles on the way and sometimes hurling you straight into a brick wall. So, this year I'm going to write when I can, keep my mind open, dream a little, and just wait and see...
I may start the year by thinking a little about how I got to this point and I'll also be talking to some of the people who have helped and inspired me along the way.
I actually got to grips with one of my writing friends,Steve Emmett, last year, shortly after he signed the contract for his novel, Diavolino, to be published by Etopia Press.
