I've been waiting for 2014 with a combination of excitement and apprehension.
2013 was a year of extreme ups and downs on all fronts--writing, my non-writing career, my personal life.
I encountered the "sophomore slump"with book two, changed agents, wrote a book with my daughter, and remembered why writing was fun.
I was unemployed, was underemployed, and started a job I love but kicks my butt.
I lost my father, which turned my world upside down and went on the best family vacation ever.
As you can see 2013 taught me a lot.
It taught me not to take anything for granted. That things do get better. To be Dorrie and just keep swimming.
I am hoping 2014 brings good things and keeps reminding me what's important in life.
