I am looking at the date on the calendar in disbelief. Perhaps even denial. 2016 just tore by, vanishing into yesterday before I could even catch up.
Amidst the politics and uncertainty, a few things stood out. For me, it was a year of achievement of personal goals, change and sadness.
Some amazing and wonderful people stepped into the pages of history. Many, sadly, before their time. We mourn them each in our own way. To those we love: we will never forget you.
On the positive side: I managed to finish two novels and begin two more; was thrilled that my Master of Illusion series achieved a second literary award; and embraced an unexpected change in lifestyle.
The last few months have been completely, totally mad. (My main New Year Resolution is not to neglect my blog.)
A BIG thank you to everyone who liked my FB pages Anne Rouen and Master of Illusion – it was very encouraging.
And now we are a few days into a brand new year – fresh, untrodden:
What will it bring?
To all my readers and followers: I wish you all that you would wish for yourselves.
May 2017 be your year!
