Sure, I could be dancing and singing and tooting my horn on this New Year’s Eve. But I couldn’t let the old year totter out without celebrating all the picture books I wrote!
I’m not saying they’re super fantastic picture books. I’m not even saying they’re semi-decent. All I’m saying is that I wrote 12 (possibly lousy) picture books in 2012. But it’s words on the page, people. And that’s 12 drafts of something I can work on in 2013.
You know, maybe I will dance and sing and toot my horn on this New Year’s Eve after all.
(And I hope you’re celebrating tons of writing achievements tonight as well. Thanks so much for joining me here in 2012–and see all y’all next year!)
