This year was one of the most stressful, unkind, and horrible years of my life. Honestly, it is one I hope to never re-live again. Not only did it affect me on every level imaginable, my writing suffered as well. In all honesty, I did not write much at all.
With that being said, I am going to re-dedicate myself to my writing again. To be a writer, one must write. If one wants to write books for children and teenagers, he or she must read those kinds of books. You want to make sure they are written in the lingo of those age ranges. It is a good thing to do research too. One needs to know what is popular among that age group.
To end this year on a good note, I plan on participating in StoryStorm (formerly known as Picture Book Idea Month – PiBoIdMo -). I did pretty decent in 2017. With 2018’s round, not so much. Maybe 2019 will be the better year for my StoryStorm participation and writing. We shall see.

Until next time…
