Y = Year

A to Z Blog Challenge: Day Twenty-five

For authors who do school visits, there is a calendar year and a school year. This school year I had the opportunity to visit many wonderful schools and meet some fabulous principals, media specialists, and most importantly those parents who volunteer their time. It was a difficult task scheduling school visits around PARCC testing in March which is typically my busiest time of the year for visits and I only had to reschedule two visits due to the snow. Now it's time to hang my book dress up in the back of my closet until September. As my school year ends my calendar year has just begun.

 Since my school visits are complete for  this school year, I treasure the extra time to write. It's also that time of the year when the weather turns beautiful and you want to spend time outdoors. But this early in the calendar year is when I nurture all those ideas and seeds I planted during the winter months. 2015 started without a list of writing any goals, which is something new for me. Instead I made one goal for the entire year. That was to spend time each day to help advance my writing career. So far, this has helped in making this year a productive one. I look forward to seeing what the rest of this year brings!
