2014 – Reflections

Reflections- angell-studio BJD


2014 Has been a wonderful year.

The last few months were a whirlwind of amazing opportunity and insight. I’ve learned so much that I hope to apply in 2015.


I went a writers conference in October (Atlanta Writers Conference) where I met so many wonderful writers as well as agents and editors. The feedback I received on my projects was spot on and sent me into a frenzy of revisions throughout November.


December brought holidays, family, and friends. Much of the my work was on pause while I enjoyed time with loved ones.


I plan to attack 2015 with fervor and use what I’ve learned to enhance my writing.


On the hobby front, I purchased two new dolls in 2014.

I found a four-leaf clover in my back yard.

Lucky Clover

I’m really hoping it’s a sign of good luck. Due to recent events, I have found that certain things are beyond our control. No matter how hard we may work at something, there are times when the stars have to align just right in order for that door to open, and isn’t that sort of what luck is? But enough about that.

A new blog I recently found is In one of her posts she mentions The Lucky 7 Game.

The actual rules are:

  • Go to page 7 or 77 of your current manuscript.
  • Go down to the seventh line and copy the 7 sentences that follow.
  • Then, after pasting those, tag 7 authors.

I’ll skip the tagging part, however, if you are an author (or just like to write as a hobby) feel free to leave your response in the comments below. I would love to see what you’re working on.
