This Past Month: January

Tuesday, January 31, 2017
And it suddenly occurred to me that I've only written one monthly wrap-up post so far because I started blogging late October and had an end of the year wrap-up in December.

So....

Let's wrap up this month of January.

(a.k.a. a-bit-too-quick quick-start to the new year)

 Writing

Well...

A Word For The Year

First of all, what in the world is a "word for the year????" If you've never heard of one of these puppies before, it's a word that you want your year to be about, something you want to pursue and focus on. Preferably, it should be abstract (courage, discovery, love, etc.), unless it absolutely must be something else because you get a specific feeling from the word (i.e. surf or bike or something *wink*)
