Good news to start 2010 with!
 
Yesterday, I was chatting with a publisher friend, and I was offered a paying editorial position. Although the pay is minimal, I have latitude regarding who I can ask to submit, so I said yes.

Today, we were talking about my poetry, and I was saying that I'd written at least one poem a day through 2009, and that I had at least 3500 poems, 500 published. And that led to an offer to publish a full-length collection; if I get it ready by mid-March 2010, it'll be out by Christmas!

So I said yes.

*does a very happy happy dance*

What good news are you bringing with you into 2010?

I was reading somewhere that instead of new year resolutions, list 30 things that you want to do for the year and try to get through them. Examples might be read x amount of books, catch up with a friend, see a movie, go on a holiday etc....whatever one can think of, that sounds reasonable instead of resolutions that get broken by the end of January. I'm debating as to what things I'd like to get down this year, however, my first would be is to wish everyone A HAPPY NEW YEAR IN 2010!

By the way, congratulations Ghyle! Hope it's successful!
