SO jazzed about my win! Thank,, ladies!

Now, goals are another thing. It's been quite a year for me. I set three goals at the beginning of last year, and the only one I met wasn't really writing related. But it's okay, because God completely changed my writing direction - from adult Christian fiction to picture books! I've made new goals for 2014 based on that, and I'm super excited. But we'll see what God has to say about that!

And, of course, I'm looking forward to the Alley posts this week. Yaaaay!
