Welcome 2018! 
You could not arrive soon enough! 
Yeah, 2017 was most definitely NOT a good year for me. All kinds of not so pleasant challenges found me in 2017, including some with my health, and some that actually seem to be the CAUSE of the challenges with my health! But I am very excited for the new year, and the changes it will undoubtedly bring! And I look forward to achieving more milestones, experiencing more adventures, and just plain moving FORWARD!!!

To kick off the new year, I am once again participating in children's book author, Tara Lazar's "Storystorm" (previously known as PiBoIdMo) It is basically an exercise in brainstorming. The goal is to come up with 30/31 picture book ideas in so many days! Along the way, Tara provides great articles and interviews with other writers and illustrators for encouragement, guidance, tips, and inspiration in her daily blog. This will be either my 3rd or 4th year participating, and I always find it to be a worthwhile exercise! Anyone interested in learning more can read about it here:…/storystorm-2018-registration-is-o…/…

Another activity I plan to do more of is UPDATE THIS BLOG! Thank you for sticking with me here! I DO find myself far more attentive to my FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM pages, so if you are on either of those social platforms, please check me out there! I love hearing from you, so don't be afraid to comment here, or on any of my channels!

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year in 2018!!!
