Time to Celebrate

It’s been so long since I’ve written anything I’ve almost forgotten how to do this. Lucky for me it’s just after 3 a.m. and with very little sleep I seem to be able to do almost anything.
Christmas is just around the corner and I’ve had time to partake in almost every Christmas tradition my family has developed over the years from seeing the Nutcracker performed by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet to baking shortbread cookies with the family and putting up the Christmas tree before December first. (These are some of the joys of having young children) and might I add they are growing too fast. Both events and all tradition partaking were good times.
Due to personal matters I’ve needed to take the last few months away from focussing on my writing to sort out other aspects of my life. It’s been trying and still is but I’ve finally managed to start writing again. I have in the past month shopped my children’s picture book manuscript around to a few publishers. (It’s a Christmas story coincidentally) and I will be happy if I can reach my goal of having it on store shelves by next October. It’s a start at least.
A really great story editor sent me really valuable notes on my first feature film script which I am hoping to start the last edit of and shop around to producers by mid-March if circumstances allow. Just this afternoon I worked on a novel that has been under construction for nine years now. I think one of my New Year’s resolutions is going to be…. On second thought I’ll share that list with you in the New Year.
On that note I’m wishing you and yours happy holidays this season. Until the New Year…
