The final weekend of the year surfaces this tomorrow—it will be a looooong one for most. Be safe. Stay warm. Do have fun. And please do some noodling … visualize what your ideal 2018 will be for your authoring and publishing endeavors. What do you need to do to create it? To make it happen? What tools and skills do you need? Or what do you personally need to do to push you over to enthusiastically embrace the steps needed to be taken?
Have a wonderful long weekend. Until next year,
