As I look forward to the new year, I realize that I'm thinking of you quite a lot.
You who, just as I do, sit with a keyboard and inject bits and pieces of our minds into blank pages. And then there’s the rewriting. Ah, well, nothing’s perfect.
You who I will meet and hopefully help in my workshops at the San Miguel Writers' Conference in Mexico, the Write on the River Writer’s Conference in Washington, and others. It is such a hoot to talk with other writers about the craft. Those will be delicious days.
You who will send your prologues and first chapters for a good “flogging”—I admire your work, talent, and guts. You’ve become the lifeblood of FtQ, and I’m ever grateful. I look forward to a year of you and me working together on your writing.
You who contribute to the floggings with your insights and opinions. The worth of the help you give becomes immense the instant one writer gains an insight from what you say, and many do here at FtQ.
You, the few dozen who will read my novels over the coming year and discover some good reads. Let me thank you in advance.
You who will help with my upcoming Kickstarter project—I want to publish two unique new games (one is “Scrabble on steroids”) and my wife and I will soon be launching a Kickstarter effort to raise the money. Stay tuned. There’s fun ahead.
To each and every one of you, may you grow and succeed as a writer in 2013.
For what it’s worth,
