Best wishes for 2014!

I think space-time slopes downwards – time is certainly running away from me. How did the new year arrive so quickly? Anyway, I want to wish a most wonderful and fulfilling 2014 to all my friends out there in the blogosphere. I may not comment on your entries often, but your presence is a comfort to me every day. Never stop speaking, writing, communicating in all the ways that you do. I treasure it.

Personally, I have reached a point of silence, of stillness, after about ten years of continuous activity. During that time there was always a manuscript or a deadline, a young child to care for, jobs to apply for, a house to sell or buy, a major life move to prepare. There were very few “holidays.” Now, suddenly, that manic level of activity has ebbed. I’m sure it will take off again (with a vengeance) but for now, I’m enjoying the lull.

If the weather improves, I shall go outside and poke the river with a stick.

EDIT: the lull is already over. That was quick!

      Right back at you, Iona! And big hugs to Andrew. Any chance of you two making it over to Europe for a holiday one of these years?

    Happy New Year, hope it’s a cracker – and the year we get to read your new novel, still really looking forward to it 🙂

    • MaryV says:

      Thank you Ashley! As to the novel – it’s out making the rounds quietly right now. Keep fingers crossed. Even if it arouses interest with a publisher, however, I doubt it would come out in 2014 – typically there’s a year’s gap. Here’s hoping!

        I’ll have to draw upon some of my patience reserves 😀
        Looking forward to it whenever it’s out, I love magic realism and I know your story will be ace!

    Happy New Year, Mary: enjoy that respite, it sounds incredibly therapeutic. 🙂

      Big, big hugs to you, Helen! Here’s hoping 2014 will see some easing up of schedules for you as well… Write to me when you get a chance!
