January & February 2013
January & February, 2013 – The year started on a quiet note. After launching Destiny’s Hands last summer and keeping busy with book events till Christmas, I hunkered down in early 2013 and spent some time getting back into freelance work, writing and submitting a pieces to places that are still publishing. It felt good to get back into a rhythm of writing and submitting.
