Hello and welcome to the new 2018! The page is blank, pencils sharpened. Are you ready to begin?

First off, let me say Happy New Year and all that good stuff that goes along with it. I won't ask you for your new year's resolutions, the plans you might have for this year, things you might want to change. Mostly because a year is a long time and most of us tend not to stick with our best intentions - or perhaps I'm just talking about myself. *Laugh*

Writing is still part of us, it runs in our veins, invades the daily thoughts, which means that sooner or later, we'll start a sentence and go with it. Considering how many different stories there are out there, is it even possible to come up with something new? Something that will catch the readers attention? Extraordinary even?

Don't answer that now. Just consider it for a moment. All of us have something to say, a good story to write, but there are so many different mysteries out there, at times it feels impossible to create the next amazing crime story. It is possible. Think about the fact that whatever happened last year is behind you and what's in front of you hasn't been written yet. That means that you have the opportunity to explore every possible venue there is. Nothing is set in stone and I bet, over the past year, your writing has improved quite a bit. Take a chance. No risk, no reward.

'Til next time!
~ Gaby *WitchHat*
