As promised, I am back to share with you my one little word for 2010.
It's a big thing, selecting just one little word to provide focus and inspiration and enrichment for a whole entire year. Especially for 2010, a year I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for...
And as in previous years, I spent a good deal of time selecting and discarding, selecting and discarding. And then, there it was, THE word:
Perfect, isn't it? And not just because I have my first novel coming out, which is yes, pretty darn awesome and definitely champagne-worthy. I chose it really more for the little things, the everyday things. Things like a good night's sleep, a hug from my non-hugging almost-ten year old, the bright red holly berries encased in ice. I want to celebrate every moment of this amazing life on this gorgeous planet.
And I want to celebrate YOU, too. Readers, writers, family, friends, people I don't yet know and people I will never know. So. Share with me your "one little word" in comments, and I'll enter you in my contest to win a LEAVING GEE'S BEND prize pack!
