Seems fitting to wrap up the draft of a novel in the final hours of the year, and I’ve done just that. Time to put this one to bed, or more accurately, send it all over creation in the hopes of finding an audience.

It’s a good feeling, the perfect culmination of a year that energized my love of writing and the will to make it happen. Many, many thanks to the other writers who have supported me and my work this year, and shared their work with me. Y’all know who you are, and it made a difference.

So. Next year comes the hard part. Submissions, more writing, more reading, more traveling. Did I say hard? I meant fun.

Bring it, ’14.
