A new year means a new you, right? Well, how about just improving on a few things? At the top of my list this year is some of the usual resolutions: working out more, attending church regularly (even if Claire Bear runs down the center aisle), and my last one is probably the one I'm most excited about. I joined Julie Hedlund's 12x12 picture book group! My goal in this group is to write one picture book every month of 2013, plus blog about my work whether it be a flop or a success. I look forward to creating new writing friendships and learning about the craft. Wish me luck!
