Happy New Year

As I look to 2013 and consider what worked in 2012, what needs to be adjusted and what new goals need to be established, I know that I need to focus most on the actual writing for if I produce nothing, there is nothing to submit and publish. 

As you all know, I am often drawn to quotes for inspiration.  As 2012 draws to a close, I'd like to leave you with words from Zig Ziglar which bring a sense of hope and meaning to me.  I hope for you as well.

"Success means doing the best we can with what we have.  Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph.  Success is a personal sandard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be."

Strive in 2013 to be all that you can be.  Give your all to the projects and work you do, and success will be yours.

May your new year be filled with much health, happiness and prosperity!

Happy Holdiays

Merry Christmas to all!  May you have a blessed holiday season and may 2013 bring much health, happiness and prosperity.

Thank you to all who have stood by and visited despite my very hit-and-miss posts.  One goal for 2013 is to be more consistent and productive in both my writing and blogging.

Be well and Happy New Year!
