Two weeks in, I'm a bit late this year but would like to wish you all a very happy and healthy new year. For the writers among you, I hope that 2019 will be a successful one when you realise your writing goals and dreams.
For the first time, we travelled to Madeira to see in the new year. The Christmas lights and New Year's Eve fireworks were as spectacular as we were expecting. Even though it was the first wet and rainy NYE for thirteen years, it didn't dampen our spirits! After a celebratory meal at a restaurant near the hotel, we were taken by coach to a castle over-looking the whole of Funchal, an excellent vantage point only surpassed by the ones from the ten cruise ships moored out in the bay.
2019 sees the five year anniversary of my blog which was started to follow my writing journey. My next blog post will look back over the last five years to see how my writing has developed. The posts have changed in content as they reflect how my writing has moved from short stories to novels. I will also share my intentions and goals for the coming year.
Thank you for reading. How has your year started? What is the first book you've read in 2019? What makes a book 'a page-turner'?
