2013 is here! And quite a year it’s going to be. In two weeks I’m going to apply to Clarion West at the very least and also possibly to Clarion (there’s something going on in my day job that I want to see through before deciding on whether to apply to Clarion). And whether or not I get into Clarion there’s all kinds of awesome things coming up all through the year!

A couple of years ago I enrolled into a Creative Writing class at the learning annex and until my schedule started conflicting this last fall, I’ve been attending it. While I was there I we met biweekly and each meeting we got a writing prompt as homework. And in one of those homework prompts I had a young woman at her grandmother’s funeral. Then the next time I just continued her story and the next and the next. Now it looks like the schedule conflict won’t be going away anytime soon and I want to get back to that story so starting next Wednesday I’ll start publishing the scenes I’ve already written here and when I run out, start writing new ones, probably biweekly based on writing prompts you guys will hopefully provide me with.

As of May the dog will be old enough to start competing so I’m kind of looking forward to humiliating myself on the field of (obedience) battle.

What are you looking forward to in 2013?
