What's Coming Up on the Veranda?

Happy New Year! I am so excited about all the possibilities and new challenges that will arise during 2013. First up is meeting all my goals and striving to achieve a higher level of writing efficiency along with more learning. Secondly, I am adding two new features to my blog which will incorporate trying new things and going to new places.

50 New Places Large or Small
Breaking Out of the Recipe Rut

Yup. This year I plan to explore my world even more closely and I want to share my adventures with you. New restaurants, new recreational parks, new museums, new everything. There is a lot to do in Alabama as well as in the surrounding states of Tennessee and Georgia and more.... I am eager to find jewels in the mines of life. Stay Tuned.

And Breaking Out of the Recipe Rut is a new challenge that I'm sure the Physicist will appreciate. I love to cook, but we all tend to turn to the tried and true when it comes to meal time. I'm more adventuresome than a lot of people, but even I get bored by my own cooking. So I've decided to try a minimum of 1 new recipe per month. I might even do more. I'm going through my recipe books and looking online for new dishes to make, then I'll make them and share the details (good, bad, and otherwise) with you.

As always I will continue sharing the fabulous Celebration Blog for Debut Authors. Can't wait to see who will cross over to the published world this year. Maybe I might have to interview myself LOL.

Occasionally, I'll post a random blog about the Linda Howard Contest and my work as its Overall Coordinator of Contest Chaos. And if a mood strikes you know I will share it with you.

First and foremost is my desire to write and write well. But then the fun begins. 

What's on your agenda for the year?

Christine, I love the new look of your blog! And it sounds like you've made some great additions to your content for this new year.

For me, I have two novels to write, one to revise; a book to promote; my blog to maintain; grad school; writing conferences; book signings; and several trips for fun. And that's just through July. Looks like a busy year for me, as well.
