The (blog) Year in Review

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Swiped from Judy who swiped it from someone else.

The rules: post the first line of the first post for each month from your blog in 2006.

January 2006

My husband is a neat freak.

That may as well be the first line of every post because truer words have never been spoken.

February 2006

Do you ever notice that you can see stuff in others work, and completely miss it in yours?

The scary part of this post is because it's in reference to editing my Liv Leigh story prior to sending it to my friend, Darcy. Why is that scary? Because I just did the same thing AGAIN and sent it to her AGAIN in November. She's an angel, and sent it all back recently. The more things change….

March 2006

Hubby is working from home today, so I can't hog the computer.

My worst nightmare. Seriously. Having hubby home changes the dynamic of the household. Doing school is next to impossible, I can't focus on my writing, just hanging out it awkward. Poor hubby.

April 2006

Yesterday, I opened up my email and found a comment that was made on this blog from someone whose name rang a bell, but because my brain is on strike, I couldn't place it.

The comment was from Rayanne Thayne - a Harlequin author whose work I actually like! This tickled me to no end.

May 2006

I just found out that the contest that I'm in -- that was supposed to announce their finalists by April 30th -- has been delayed.

This post was all about the fact that I seem to jinx people - ezines I subbed to went out of business (twice!), once the guy got incurable cancer, and I'm sure it was all my fault.

However, since The Wild Rose Press is still alive and kicking, I hope that my jinx is over.

June 2006

Plotting a romantic mystery is a challenge.

The more I look back at last years blog, the more I feel like I'm stuck in a rut. I'm working on all the same stuff I was working on last year. Must. Move. Forward. GAH!

July 2006

Got this from Charity who got it from Mary who got it from Tracy who got it from Entertainment Weekly (there... I think I gave everyone credit who needed it!):

Bet you're wondering just what I got, aren't you? Go here for the post.

August 2006

I may do this every week... if you all got some benefit from it!

This was my first, and possibly my last "Ten for Tuesday" post. Apparently, my attention span is quite short.

September 2006

From Charity -- I hadn't planned on doing another post today, especially another meme, but I couldn't resist. I mean, who could resist The Greek Mythology Personality Test?

Not I, apparently. I was all about meme's that day -- I did the Friday Feast and this one.

October 2006

I hadn't planned on writing anything much today -- I was a little on the discouraged side yesterday, and didn't feel like being discouraging again.

That's always a good thing.

November 2006

Okay... managed to get my minimum word count done today, but I'll be working some more.

The beginning of NaNo… need I say more?

December 2006

Finally! My story "Now That We've Found You" is now available at the Wild Rose Press.

Ah, yes. The highlight of my year.

Anyone else up for the challenge?

You sound like you are feeling better. I'm glad. Don't like it when my friends are sick ('specially when I'm too far away to do anything!)

Hopefully, GS will be back up and running this week. I'll keep you informed.

Thanks to both of you--I stole this one.

Memes are great - and this is a great one! I'm doing it too ... as soon as these essays give me a break. Happy New Year!
