Starting over

I know it's traditional to begin the New Year on January 1st, but having been sick as a snuff movie this week I've decided that for me it's starting January 12th. That's when I will begin writing the next crime novel. I wrote the preface and opening pages some time ago but this is a fresh start. I'm excited, I must admit. Buzzed, in fact. Not that this week was a complete write-off. I did finish a short story today, and entered it in a couple of contests. I also entered a couple of others things in a couple of other contests. But the Novel's the Thing. And it's to the Novel I am turning my attention, as of next week.

Best of luck with the new novel, Sarah... am very impressed that being so sick you still have started the year in a flurry of activity.

Look forward to following your progress through the year, and hearing more about the new novel.

Onwards and upwards and upwards.

The Thing has already been done a couple of times, Sarah.

Maybe you should come up with a new title. ;)

P.S. Best of wishes for a productive 2009.

Thanks, Douglas. I look forward to following your successes this year. It's great to have your support.

Thanks, KC, and you're right! Maybe I ought to call it The What, instead.

Thanks, Nik!

Thanks, Gay. You're right alongside me, no hanging allowed.
