The New Year Begins

Another year is in the books! The past year, 2014, flew by fast for me while I worked on my book and published it.  I started a new story in November which has the potential to be turned into my next published book if I choose or split into multiple books. 

The past year saw many creative projects for me besides writing and as 2015 starts I have plenty of creative projects I wish to accomplish this year.  One of those creative projects is working on a creative journal book.  I have made a rough copy of it. It's not meant to be a real book but the possibility is there.

Many people freeze up when it comes to writing or just trying to be creative.  The journal is more like a yearly planner but there are things to do per month like write down a quote that you connect with or go out and do a random act of kindness.  There is more to it but it is very simplistic.  Writing or being creative overwhelms people who normally are not in that mindset.  The journal is to help bridge that world.

I took up knitting again and hope to finish the scarf that I have begun.  I am using one of those looms you see in craft stores which makes it a bit easier than the traditional use of knitting needles.

I do want to make an attempt to take more photos.  I loved taking photos as a kid and while photos these days are digital it takes all the fun out of getting them developed and seeing what you get back.  I miss those days of submitting a roll of film.

Ah - the good ol' days.

I want to wish all of you a happy and wonderful 2015.  Now get creative!
