But New Year isn't just about partying, or throwing away old calendars. For many it's a time for reflection and resolution. For me, it's been a crazy five months. My career started out of nowhere, my blog got reasonably popular--high pressure excitement all around. My resolutions basically involve not buckling under the pressure. I'll practise what I preach and make myself thrive on it instead.
In the spirit of togetherness, I'd like to invite all my readers to post their resolutions, progress, tribulations or anything else in the comments section. I'll even answer any questions and address any woes wherever I can.
Speaking of resolutions, for those of you interested in science fiction or fantasy, the Clarion Writer's Workshop is now open to applications.
For everyone, I'd like to re-post something that may have seemed random and gone unnoticed last time. Watch the following video. It's incredibly inspiring to hear such a grand success and Neil Gaiman talking about his career and sharing his wisdom of how to maintain a healthy attitude. It's his commencement speech for the University of the Arts 2012. Well, life is the best University of the Arts, so let's start 2013 with an inspiring summary.
I look forward to reading and responding to your comments! Let's make 2013 worthy of a rock ballad montage.
