There are many things about this upcoming year that will mark it as one to remember. Middle son is graduating High School and headed off on his life, oldest son finishing first year of college, and youngest son headed to states for the YMCA and School???
And J.R. Wagner is publishing his first novel, so we won't have to keep asking "What is the Never?"
And I am going to finish writing about Gus, once and for all, to never pick it up again. This is the only way I can move forward. Or, perhaps, I am afraid that once Gus is out of my head, all the threads will blow away. That is impossible, there are too many of them, too many people need to die in too many horrendous ways. Yeah, I don't know why, but they do. Maybe I realize that all the forensic television is supposed to make the average murderer think twice, they are going to be caught. Not the serial killer though, he can use the forensics to his advantage...
Why? I don't know. Growing up reading King? Egg? Chicken?
And I am going to publish the book of poetry, one way or another. Someone is going to see the merit, see the fund-raising possibilities, bird-cage lining possibilities, fire-starting possibilities.
And I am going to win a contest, maybe a short story, maybe a poetry, maybe a new novel contest, but I am going to win something. Or at least enter something. Or at least write something that might get entered.
I do know that I am going to be building lots of stuff this coming year, starting with steps and a walk next week, a compass rose design throughout the winter, two stone walls this spring, and another patio! More in the pipe-line too, a couple of walks, and a few walls.
And...and...it is going to be a good year!
