Happy New Year!

(and Merry Christmas!)

Because it’s just the second day of the new year, this is still the Christmas season.

I hope your celebrations were great. Mine were fine and quiet. Christmas gifts? They were perfect: a few L.L. Bean pullovers, some new earrings, and a new apron.

So what have I been up to over the past month? The writing life is coming along with the two works in progress. They each should be going out to the editors soon. And because I can imagine a light at the end of the tunnel, I started a new work in progress early in the month. It’s coming along. I hope to begin presenting it to my critique group once I finish presenting the second work in progress.

I’ve also been into movies this past month. Not sure why. It could be because I heard of some interesting new ones, namely a remake of Les Miserables, plus a few movies about Caribbean immigrants to the U.K. in the 1960s and 1970s. Then finally, a recent release, Sylvie’s Love, a story taking place in the 1950s and 1960s.

I’ve included their posters.

What about books? I hope to read some new romances, you can see their covers. I read the book on Anglicanism: link, because I can’t read enough. Finally, I’m interested in reading the one on theology.

My reading interests are eclectic, I know. Smile.
