The Last Yes of 2010

The year 2010 ended for me on a yes.

Yesterday afternoon, on the last day of 2010, I got into a writing-something I’d applied to! I’ll reveal more once I’m sure it’s happening. But let’s just say it involves some foreign travel and if you have any suggestions for travel grants for writers please let me know because I don’t have airline miles.

Here’s one quite majestic hint:

I was surprised and excited by the last yes of the year.

And now my attention has turned toward the year we’re undeniably in: 2011.

I’m hoping for more yeses, and to get those yeses I need to put myself out there and try and try again. I’ll be applying to many things this year. I’ll be writing new things and submitting them. I want to see what all could happen.

What will be the first yes of 2011? I have my fingers crossed for a few possibilities… All I know is you can’t hear yes unless you risk that no.

May your 2011 give you the yes you’ve always wanted.

  1. Oh my gosh, I am SO ENVIOUS. (Then again, I haven’t applied for anything since Yaddo, and that was over a year ago now!) Dying to hear more about it!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2011 is going to be an awesome year for you!
