Ah, the new year. A time of beginnings. A time of potential. A time of promise.
Or in the case of 2018, a Monday.
I won’t bore you with the details of my new year’s eve antics, mainly because there weren’t any. I watched TV, ate pizza, and was in bed at a reasonable hour that was so reasonable it wasn’t even remotely close to midnight. My dog did wake me up with a few barks at 12:02am, so I wished her a Happy New Year as well and went back to sleep.
When I woke up, it was Monday, the first of a brand new year. In typical Monday fashion, I pushed up my sleeves and got to work. With a whole new year ahead of me, I figured some planning was in order.
So what will 2018 hold for me? It should be interesting…
- My spec fiction short story, “Forever Portend” was selected for Sic Semper Serpent’s “Spontaneous Combustion, vol. 2.” It’s a super cool project you can learn more about here. Fingers crossed for a late winter/early spring release.
- The Books and Beer Pop-up Bookstore will be going strong for its second year.
- I swear to Pete that another book is in the works. It might even see the light of day in 2018…
- A fun long-shot: A couple of buddies of mine and I are planning to open a bookstore. More details to come on that.
Before, between, around, and after all of those things, I’m planning on having a great year full of food and friends and fun, and I hope you do, too!
