Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne…
Here, while you read my New Year’s Post, enjoy one of my favorite renditions of the song.
What a year 2015 has been. It seems like the last few years I’ve faced the end of a year and been surprised at some of the things that have happened. But I guess that’s half the fun sometimes, you don’t see everything that’s coming.
But auld lang syne. It’s a Scottish term and, roughly translated, it means days long past.
The Wall is talking–or rather James, Ben, Nicole, and I–are talking tonight. We’re talking about things that happened this year and things planned for next year and how we can improve and make 18thWall stronger.
It’s a process and I’m glad you’ve joined us for the journey.
Even as a writer, I wasn’t sure what 2015 would hold for me. I announced the first anthology that I was editing. I had my first book come out, I got handed a surprise project, I left a project I’d been involved with for ages, and found a couple of new ones. That and I graduated college.
What a year 2015 has been. And once again, it has left me excited to see where 2016 takes me. I’m sure this time next year, I’ll be surprised yet again by what happens.
So here I sit, cutting it close to my weekly deadline yet again and trying to figure out just what I want to say.
From all of us here at 18thWall Productions we wish you all a safe and happy New Year’s. We hope that your 2016 is full of books and writing.
And as we sit here and watch 2015 enter it’s last day, we can’t help but think about auld lang syne.
Happy New Year’s everyone! See you in 2016.
