Door closes, window opens

We’ve all heard the saying, ‘when a door closes, another one opens. Or a window opens. Or another opportunity arises. The end of the year is like that too. When a year draws to a close, another one, a brand-new one is about to arrive.

In writing, one sentence end leads to the next sentence. One paragraph ending goes to the next. One page, and another, and another. Even The End of one book leads to Once Upon a Time in the next book you are going to work on.

The journey of being a writer is full of endings and beginnings. Once a book end, what do you do with it next? Why, start a new one, of course! The end of each editing round is to make your story better; this one and the next and the next and so on.

So, as this year ends, look forward to the beginning of a new year, a new book, a new step of the journey.

Good luck and happy writing in 2011!!!
