2015: What Are You Looking Forward To?
Here we are five days into the new year and I'm starting to familiarise myself with this shiny thing that is 2015. (It usually takes me many days -- or weeks -- writing cheques with 2014 dates before I'm set!) I'm rather keen on new years, with their blank-canvas quality. It's a chance to close the door on the old, and start fresh with new opportunities: the chance to do better, or to do things differently, or to consolidate a plan in progress because it feels right to do so.
Since my last post was about achievements in 2014, I thought I would continue the theme with what we're keen to achieve in 2015. Perhaps, like Barbara, you're looking forward to getting the most out of life by slowing down and smelling each rose-of-importance. Perhaps there is a special occasion -- a landmark birthday, a wedding, travel -- to look forward to. Or perhaps it's a long-anticipated book you can't wait to get your hands on…or, as a writer, you can't wait to write.
I'm looking forward to finishing two stories which have been works in progress for far too long. I'm looking forward to having a new book to share with readers. I'm also looking forward to several trips: to Bali for a nephew's much-anticipated wedding and another visit to America and Canada, this time with my husband. This will be out first overseas travel together for *mumblemumble* years and the planning has been a work in progress for even longer than my stories. Oh, and there's also a surprise event in planning for a big birthday (mine!), which I know is happening but the format and destination will remain a surprise.
So, tell me: what are YOU looking forward to most in 2015?
