Happy New Year! from a few awesome writers :)

As I am winding down from a long (though fun) Christmas vacation with my kids (filled with games of Sorry and Bananagrams and very few (aka no) new words in the WIP) and am gearing up for a whirlwind month of games and prizes leading up to my book release in a few short weeks (eep!) I thought I'd share with you a few favorite New Year's quotes from a few awesome writers :)

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."
- Edith Lovejoy Pierce

"Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account." (hehe)
- Oscar Wilde

"We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential."
- Ellen Goodman

"One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things."
- John Burroughs

"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
- T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

Happy New Year's Everyone :) May the new year bring you WIPs filled with usable words, requests or at least rejections filled with useful advice, helpful critiques that are blunt and truthful but never cruel, and above all, may you laugh, love, and WRITE! :)
