A Not-So-Final Note from the Editor
Happy New Year and all that frothy and frothering high-spirited celebrate-a-thon go-forth-and-whatever whoo-hoo stuff! It’s a new day, a new year, a new … you! Right? Right! Are you writing? Well, I am. That is, I’m typing this editorial, right? Ha.
Of course, as I type this, it’s not even Christmas Day yet … but soon it will be, and then the first of the year, and another year bites the dust. With 2018 comes … who knows what, right? Especially for you, the writer, the poet, the artist. Remember: I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions, but I do think about something I’d like to accomplish in the coming year (sounds like a resolution, doesn’t it? Nope; not even close in the split-the-hair way). “And what is that?” I hear you all cry in crystal-clear perfect unison (not so easy since you’re not all in the same time zones!). Well, write more, of course! I said this last January as well. Um, that didn’t turn out that well, as it happens. I’m not sure why it didn’t. Oh, wait; was it because I didn’t try more? Hmm. Perhaps. Okay … but this time it will succeed because I will be … what? More in tune with the writing muse? More prone to ignore phone calls and meowing cats shredding the screen on my office door? More laser-beam focused? That would be nice.
So what are you doing as a writer for the new year? What plans are you making? More writing? More marketing? More submitting? Rah! Get that stuff out in the mail (so to speak)! You can’t sell if you don’t send the stuff to editors. Trust me on that!
