It's 2016!

Happy Monday All,

It's a brand new year! In some ways, it seems like it's taken a long time to get to 2016, in others, it seems like it's moved fast. Whether fast or slow, it's here.

A lot of people like to reflect on the year that's past. For me, it was a whirlwind of change. My family grew, bringing new challenges--both good things and rough. I'm pretty sleep deprived these days as a result (I know sleep is possible...just not yet). I'm starting out the year with having published 4 novels and working on another and a few new ideas.

I haven't completely left the Immortals from Immortal Dreams Trilogy behind. They're still there (and Jason and Laney often make appearances on the Immortal Dreams Facebook page). But I'm not actively working on anything, yet. However, ideas are there.

I'm pursuing new possibilities. It's both exciting and nerve-wrecking. I keep asking myself, "What's the next best move for me? What should I do?" I often get a sense about things and so far I have no reason to question what's on the current path, but I have no idea what's going to happen, yet.

So, that brings me to 2016. The possibilities, hopes, and dreams are fresh, and there's no let-down, or triumph to color the year one way or another. Every year has had ups and downs, and I don't expect 2016 to be all happy or all sad. But I wonder beyond what I know is coming, what will happen.

In a way it's like reading a novel you get into. You have a nervous anticipation about what will happen next with the characters. You
have a few ideas of what will happen, but you don't know for sure what the outcome will be. So you keep going, nervously excited for  and dreading what's on the next page. That's 2016 for me.

There are several things I'm anticipating, and a few things I'm nervous or dreading. There are things that I'm concerned will happen, but things I pray will happen.

So, what about you? What is the new year, 2016, to you?

Have A Marvelously Merry Monday!
