New Year’s Eve is my least favorite holiday. Too much hype and pressure and no particular traditions to get me through. And it’s really a bottom of the bucket holiday for parents of teens.
But here it is. And so I say to 2010: So long, farewell, adios!
It’s also the end of a decade – the decade where I became a writer… still got a ways to go. Besides relationships, there are very few things I’ve done for ten years.
One of my bits of advice to the teens in my life regarding New Year’s celebrations is to remember that it is a holiday of looking ahead – to the future. (As in don’t screw up your future tonight.)
Here are a few San Diego writer-related type things to look forward to…
- ALA Mid-winter Meeting: January 7-11, 2011
- San Diego SCBWI Conference: February 12, 2011
- San Diego Writers Ink: ongoing classes and events and room to write
And check out your horoscope. This is the one Yahoo gave me in my email and I like its plans for me so I’m not looking anywhere else.
See you next year!
