Happy New Year everyone!
I entirely love New Year as it gives me a chance to forget all the stuff I didn’t do last year and say I’m going to do it all again this year! Wiping the slate clean and all that stuff.
This year I’m resolving to write two new books – one fiction and one non-fiction – I just need to timetable it in and do it, right? Well, that’s the theory! Luckily, I have a few good friends who always support me and spur me on.
I’m also starting to teach Creative Writing to adults in January. I’m looking forward to a new challenge and meeting people who want to take their writing to the next level. I’m a bit nervous but really hope I can help people to make the positive changes they want to make too.
One person who has always supported me and my writing is a book blogger called Jim, who blogs at YAYeaYeah here http://www.yayeahyeah.com?Book bloggers are generally great people who really, really ‘get’ books and love spreading the word about good ones. So, I was honoured that Emily Sparkes and the Disco Disaster’ and ‘Emily Sparkes and the Backstage Blunder’ are included in YAYeahYeah’s list of favourite books of 2016 as ‘Hidden Gems of the Year’!
There are loads of other great books on the list too.
What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
