Who Are We?
The NovelFriends are four writers who met through Wisconsin Romance Writers and initially became bonded by our love of books. That connection has expanded, grown, and deepened into true friendship over the years. We look forward to sharing our experiences with you, so follow the blog and join in the fun - we're always happy to have more NovelFriends!

|The view out my window - check out the guy|
in mid-air on the bottom left.
My bird feeders hang right outside my writing window and for the first time we have a cardinal hanging around. Of course, I had to grab the new camera I got in December and snap some pictures.
|Coming in for landing.|
Now, I can't take credit for these last pictures but they're cool so I thought I'd share. There are a pair of Pheasants that hang out behind the garage and my hubby Wayne was happy to have caught them before they took off. (Um...because I came home and beeped the horn before I realized he was stalking his subjects.)
|"You hear that George?"|
"Hear what, Fred?"
"That clicking noise. I swear, someone's watching us."
|"I told you someone was watching us!|
I'm outta here!"

This year I pledge to live my life creatively.
I love doing creative things and for many years have shoved that urge to the back burner because of housework, cooking, errands, etc. Instead of ignoring my need to create, I have worked out a plan to budget time to work on creative projects along with all of the other things I need to do. I am excited to start working on projects I've been stockpiling for years. I'm even more excited that this is also going to help me make progress on some of the old resolutions I used to make.
I know it's early in the year, but so far I'm doing pretty well. I've set a very reasonable writing goal for myself and have made my goal each day. I've also made a list of the many craft projects I've been wanting to make and am going to work on one project each week. I've already found several classes I'm taking to learn some new things I've been wanting to try forever.
It's also keeping me off the couch and moving around. It keeps my hands to busy for mindless snacking. Most important, it has me feeling refreshed and excited to be making things again.

Then, it happened...or didn't happen, however you want to look at it. The world didn't end, the mini-van is making strange noises, my thighs look like cottage cheese and I've got untold number of years to suffer the consequences of my year(s) of apocalypse abandon. Thanks a lot Mayans.
That brings us to today, New Years Day 2013, a day I was counting on never happening. Since the world doesn't appear to be ending any time soon, I'm going to have to do damage control in the form of a dreaded New Year's Resolution. This really sucks. I'm not going to announce my resolution, that would be on par with a government official e-mailing someone a reminder that their monthly bribery payment is due - there are times you don't want to leave a paper trail, people. Let's just say I resolve not to spend 2013 partying like it's 1999.
How about you? Do you have a resolution you don't mind sharing?
Have a Happy New Year - from The Novelfriends!
