Michelle here. It's that time again - saying good-bye to another year and looking forward to the one ahead. There's so much I'd like to accomplish this year, but I've learned that sometimes you have to take it one day at a time.

I didn't get much writing done in 2014. It was a rough year. My dad has been battling cancer and it's taken a toll on me and my family. In all honesty, we didn't think he'd make it to 2015, but he has and for that I'm grateful. But I realized how important writing has become to me because the less of it I do, the worse I feel. I've got all these stories and characters cluttering up my brain (and let's be honest, there's not a lot of space up there in the first place).

For 2015, I'd like to finish my Losing It series for Evernight. I got the first two books done and released, and partway through writing the third the EDJ got really hard, plus Dad got sick again and it faded into the background. I only need another 2k or so to finish #3 so I'd like to get that done by the end of January. I have two more planned beyond that.

I started writing a story for Evernight's Uniform Anthology, but I didn't make the deadline, especially because I realized that the story I was trying to tell was too big. So I'd like to expand it and submit it sometime this year. Hopefully I'll be able to participate in some of the anthologies in 2015. It was a lot of fun to see my story in the Executive Assistant Anthology released in 2014.

Of course, some of my favourite authors have great new releases coming up this year that I'm going to have to find time to read! I bet a lot of you are facing the same dilemma.

I'd love to hear about what you're looking forward to reading this year. Leave me a comment to tell me about it. I'll choose one commenter to receive a $10 Evernight gift certificate and their choice of one of my Evernight books.
