The much dreaded birthday is upon me and not as bad as I had feared. Actually, it's been kind of nice. I feel younger than I have felt for years. Time to put that new found energy to a purpose; there's much writing to do.
I will be spending part of my birthday in school, the first day of classes for a new semester. I think I'm making the right decision by continuing forward with my studies. Only time will tell. Being published this year would be very welcome.
