Happy Birthday to Me!
Tomorrow I turn 39 . . . yet again.
It's been an eventful year. It was about this time last year that I decided to try my hand at writing. That was one novel, ten short stories, and about 135,ooo words ago. So as much as I feel I sort of slacked off at times, I do have the numbers to remind my ever guilty conscience that I actually put some real effort into it this time.
I'm still not totally comfortable calling myself a "writer", as that is something that other writers are called. Yeah, I know, it doesn't make a lot of sense. But there it is.
Ah well, I will eat a bite of cake in celebration. The main thing is seeing everybody together again.
