|Just in time...|
It is the last day of December: time to reflect on 2018 before the midnight chimes sound the death knell of the old year and a new year begins.
I’ve not written as much as I had planned this time last year. But I have written. And I have started to submit my work again. I count that as a good thing.
I have seen stories published in Woman’s Weekly Fiction Special and the Yours 2019 Annual.
Several of my letters have been printed in various magazines.
I have had a couple of shoutouts in the Mslexia subscribers’ newsletter, littlems.
I was a runner-up in a competition run by Writers’ Forum which resulted in a sale.
In June I visited Helen and Mike Walters at their glorious Solus Or Writing Retreat.
In August I went to the Swanwick Writers’ Summer School where I met several writing buddies, both old and new.

New Year plans:
I hesitate to state in a public forum exactly what I hope to achieve in 2019. Real life too often intervenes to knock us off our chartered course. I have though privately committed some intentions to paper to give me a focus.
I definitely want to write more, submit more, enter more competitions, and be published more often.
I intend to return to Solus Or.
I hope also to return to Swanwick.
Happy New Year to all and may all your writing dreams come true in 2019.
