Happy New Year

Happy New Year. It was one year ago that I started All the Best and never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined where it all would lead, hence the 2007 in my blog address—self-limited thinking on my part I guess. I will of course keep my blog address and the 2007 will now represent the year established, as I hope there will be many more years of blogging to come.

Little did I know when this all began that I would have the opportunity to meet and profile so many interesting people over the course of a year, by far my favorite aspect of blogging and I am planning many more for 2008. I find the stories behind all the creative and artistic minds to be personally inspiring.

My overriding goal and resolution for the coming year is to complete a book version of All the Best (the vision is becoming clearer by the day) and to find an agent and publisher. A lofty goal, I know, but I’m very excited and determined to see this dream come to fruition.

I will readily admit that I find the whole literary world to be a bit daunting and slightly mysterious, but I am up for the challenge. As always, I am open to your advice and suggestions.
All the best in 2008,

No worries, in a few years you can spruce up your blog with an "EST. 2007" graphic aka Forever 21 and it will look like class itself. :)
