"What are you going to do in 2017?"

This year has been quite the year, mostly due to the fact that on 21st March I launched this website. I'm pleased to say that I'm still here, and plan to expand my presence somewhat in the coming year.

So whilst I've not entirely mapped out 2017 yet (because, really, what's the point?), I have planned how I'm kicking it off, in that I'm going to be reducing the number of blog posts I publish each week so that I have time to draft a submission for a literary agent. Who knows, maybe 2017 will be the year that One Day At A Time becomes something bigger, not to mention physical.

I'm also going to be making a day-trip to London to work alongside some lovely folk at a charity. That'll happen four times throughout the year, and I'm really, truly excited about it all!

Other than that I've no plans, but I think both of those are pretty huge in their own right.

The darkness of this year only serves to push me to do more next year. We've lost so many incredible voices, it stands to reason that those of us who are still here need to raise our voices and ensure that we don't stand by as silent witnesses to the goings-on that have shaken the world of late.
