Do or do not; there is no try

As I look back on 2012 on this New Year's Eve, I accept the truth that every goal I reached or failed to reach was the result of my own doing and made possible by the grace of God.

As I step forward into 2013, I acknowledge that I am in charge of my own actions and my ability to reach my goals depends largely on the strength of my resolve.

Bring it on!

Happy New Year!

I was looking through Kristin Nelson's comments on an old Secret Agent contest. Yeah, I'm weird and obsessive like that. I came across THE LONG ROAD TO HEAVEN. Even though I agreed som of the confusion needed to be cleared up, that first page got my attention. There's an almost Dan Chaon quality of literary weirdness to it. I would love to read it some day. Has it found a home yet?

You really went back into the archives to find that entry.

Alas, Long Road has not found a home. I had some personal issues take over my writing endeavors. In early 2010, I fell out of touch with my muse and quit any sort of creative writing.

Thankfully, I'm on the mend. I'm finally getting back into the groove of writing again. I completed NaNoWriMo in November.

I'm giving Long Road another go, too, because I feel it's a story that needs to be told. However, I've become extremely jaded by the idea of traditional publishing. I'm giving serious consideration to self-publishing for a number of reasons, not the least of which is creative control. (I hope that doesn't make me sound like a prima donna because that's not my intention.)

I've decided to continue building my platform while I'm working out the kinks in the story. If you'd like to follow me on Twitter, you're more than welcome. @katharriswrites (I follow back, BTW.) :-D

Or if you'd like to find me on Facebook, send a friend request to Kathryn Hupp-Harris. I'm also working on developing an author page that should be ready soon.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave a message. It really gives me a sense of encouragement and motivation. Maybe I was meant to do this creative writing thing after all.
