Last minute lessons, on the Writers’ Vineyard

For my end of year post on the Writers’ Vineyard, I tossed together a few lessons from 2013, the year I became a published author. Written at the last minute, of course.

Here is lesson number one:

Read the whole post here. 

And to one and all, I wish you a new year filled with peace and an abundance of time for the things that bring you joy.
