Have you seen this?
I loved it.
This boy died on Christmas day, but if you have a few minutes, read what he says here:
Are your writing goals complete?
Have you decided how you are going to move into 2012 as a writer?
Are your goals attainable? Are you in control of them?
Even if the world’s going to end this year, well, we need to be working on something amazing before it’s all over, don’t you think?

I tell you all this as a warning for next week. I read something that simply blew my mind on Facebook– a woman who needs no classes, no teaching, nothing–she’s an accomplished author all on her own. And yes, I found her books on Amazon. And yes, I read a bit, and yes, she needs help. BAD.
But more on that later.
But here’s a for sure–
Happy New Year!!!!
