2015 was a good year. I wrote more this year than I ever had in the past. I learned a lot along the way, received some rejections, but also acquired some positive feedback; all things to grow on. I plan to make a few final submissions today, and then continue on in the new year.
One thing I thought about this year was; now that I have so many notebooks full of ideas and stories, I should invest in a fire-proof safe. Why? Because what would happen if there was a fire? All of my stories and poems would be gone. Some of it would be saved, if it is online, but I would also put my external hard drive in the safe.
What would happen if I died? What if I died in a fire? Not only would my writing be gone, but I would be vanquished with it. As with most art, it would probably be worth more once I am gone, so I should probably keep it safe. Maybe someday, someone would find a lost story or poem and it would affect them. That's all I can hope for.
Personally, it has been a good year also. Some ups and downs, but the future looks bright. I am excited about the coming new year, new possibilities, and prospects.
