A year gone by…

Angie was rummaging through her archives and spotted something in an old post that reminded her to remind me that today is the first anniversary of my getting The Email.

The post from1/31/05:

While pondering the discussion about bland blogs on Alison’s blog, I went through my email accounts and found…

THE Email. From Ellora’s Cave. The Doubt Monkeys are still standing around scratching their heads, wondering how THAT happened. *g*

I guess I’m going to have get my website/blog sh…tuff together, huh?

I’m sure more profound thoughts will pop into my head at some point, but…

The Pat’s are about to repeat as Superbowl Champions. The Red Sox won the World Series. Shannon sold.

Watch, now Armageddon will strike. :p

THIS year I have a plan. One which doesn’t include squandering away an entire year. I’m pretty excited about some of the things on my horizon, and at least I’m going into this year with some kind of a clue. :lmao:

Hey, at least Armageddon didn’t strike. :thumb:

    Whoo hooo Shan. Time flies, doesn’t it?

    It’s been a fabulous year for you, so don’t say you squandered it. Just think of all you’ve learned and how you can apply that to even bigger things this year! :nod:

    Yes, like Mel, I look at those reviews in your sidebar and think, “wow. THAT’s squandering?!”

    No such thing.

    But I understand the need to feel more in control of your year ahead. So good luck and get going! :cheer:

    Oh, the year definitely isn’t a waste. I’m thankful for the success Roadtrip has enjoyed, and I’ve received lovely reviews and I also signed the contract for FA in 2005.

    I meant time more than anything. I didn’t do as much actual writing as I should I have, and I had some trouble sticking with one project. For some reason 2005 was the year of setting things aside to work on something else.

    No more. :whip:
