EDDD 31 – 2013, It Was Good To Know Ye


2013 has been a year like no other for me. It’s been a year of beginnings, and a year of finalities. From friendships to my figure, from anonymity to zealous writing, I’ve seen it all.

I’ve stayed in a house where I was haunted by my own characters, I’ve grown – not only by the twenty or so pounds I gained since Hallowe’en – but as a writer. I’ve finished two novels and have two blogs of my own, as well as having been included in two of the best sites on WordPress – The Community Storyboard, which will be up and running again in the new year, and by my dear dear friend, THE Opinionated Man on HarsH ReaLiTy as a guest.

But most of all I’ve had my dream come true. I’ve gone from a woman isolated from society by her life’s circumstances, to a blogger with connections worldwide, with people I have more in common with than I could have dreamed, and a few true friends as well.

2013 has blessed me with the discovery of community, and the privilege of having spent yet another year with the most loving three children a mother could wish for.

Every year I make resolutions which I never keep. This time around I realize their importance and will do my utmost to uphold them – not to mention this is the first time I’ve ever declared them in public. I have face to save!

To lose above mentioned twenty pounds is just the start. My intention is for this to be the year I come into my own as a writer and to get something published, whether it by my epic novel (my first choice) or an article for which I am paid. And finally, I wish to bring calm and love to those I hold dear – the one thing I strive for always.

A happy, healthy, wealthy, and peaceful 2014 to everyone!

  15. Your words are well written with an eloquence in there as well. I, too, have grown in numerous ways, including the twenty pounds. But my year coming up is going to be rockin as my husband and I purchase our motorhome, sell the house, and live full time on the road. We don’t yet have a definite date set but have high hopes for a life on the road. A great way to see the United States. Tomorrow I celebrate my 61st birthday and hope my health holds up well enough for both my husband and self. Thanks for making my trips to wordpress more meaningful Linda. You are a wonderful woman and mother.


  16. My only resolution is to actually get out of bed, shower and get dressed tomorrow. I’ve been very lazy the last week. I needed the downtime to rest but enough is enough πŸ˜‰


  17. I wish for all those aspirations to come true, Linda! All the best in 2014!
