This is my new mantra for the year. If I tell myself this often enough, it must be true. Right?
I've been doing basically the same things for 25 years, but all of a sudden things at work are changing. Next year, I'll be in a new room with new duties. I may have to teach a new course. My best friend at my school is moving to the new school they just built. I've also gained new responsibilites.
Don't get me wrong. I love challenges but don't hit me with them all at once. Yikes!
On the other hand, all of this change is giving me a ton of new ideas for various characters. I'm at 60,000 words on my newest wip with hopes of wrapping it up at 80,000. My goal is to finish the story by spring break. Wish me luck.
