Looking Ahead to 2014

Happy New Year!

Here's to making the most of 2014!

I like that the New Year allows me to reboot my plans and think about what I want to achieve for the year.

This year, I'm looking forward to ALA Annual in Las Vegas this summer (Las Vegas in summer?!? Actually, I'm a desert girl, so I'm not fazed by that.) I'm anticipating some good professional development, networking, and freebies!

I'm also looking forward to becoming more active locally with other YA librarians.

In my writing life, I am revising my novel (again!). This is a pretty big rewrite as I decided I didn't need a supporting character after all. I realized that the tension and stakes are higher if she isn't around. So she's going.

I'm also looking into rewriting a couple of my screenplays into graphic novels. Inspired by my friend Kelli Bennett's philosophy of creating from what you have, I think it's worth a shot to see if I can make this happen.

And speaking of Kelli, here's hoping that 2014 is the year that our movie, Collusions, finishes post-production and gets distribution!

I also hope to grow this blog. I tend to write book reviews, library stuff, and writing tips. If there's a topic you'd like to me write about, let me know!

Have a happy and healthy New Year!
