New Year's Resolutions of a Writer

Thank you for being a part of my story in 2015 and here's to new adventures in 2016. May we always have good books around!

So have you made any resolutions for the new year?

Here are mine...

Lol, okay, on the more practical side: I continue to search for easy and quick recipes that'll help me feed my family and myself healthy, home-cooked meals with minimum fuss and stress. To that end, I found this helpful list of articles on Food52 about tackling New Year's Resolutions

Also, I have returned to full-time journalism again. At the end of 2015, I covered issues like Texas' Open Carry policy, an ordinance banning texting and other cell phone/computer use while driving, and stories about our local family shelter. Important stories that help make a different in my community.

However, this means I didn't get much of my own writing done at the end of 2015 and I miss my words. While fiction seems to pale in importance when I compare them to some of my journalistic pieces, the truth is when I desperately need solace and hope, I turn off the news. Instead, I find myself a good story with romance and adventure...and yes, I find everything I need. So in 2016 I'm seeking to balance my two writing worlds.
