"This is going to be your year"

When I turned 31 this past September, a dear friend and fellow writer said to me, "This is going to be your year!" I agreed/hoped. And thus far, those words have rung true. I've had a darn lucky year so far.

In December my first official paid publication was released...three short pieces that were part of Nickel City Nights: Erotic Writing in Western New York. Then in January, my work was chosen as the feature story in Flash Me Magazine, another paying gig. In March I won a radio contest to be whisked off the Hollywood for a NKOTB concert. April I was asked to be a featured reader at a local poetry/literary venue. And now this week, not one, not two, but THREE ePublishing contracts for my second novel.

Yes...things have been pretty good......

But I can't help but wonder....if this year is gonna be great....will I use up all the greatness I'm due and next year will suck?? When are the bad things gonna start? When will my luck change??? I try to stay positive and live each day to the fullest, enjoying every moment, but I just cannot help these thoughts.

Soak it up now I just never know what the future will hold.


  1. There's no limit or quota on luck. A lot of good things coming your way is a state of mind. Keep being positive!

  2. LOL
    Use up all the greatness? I didn't know that could happen. :-) I think it'll all be okay.
