2 down, 48 to go

There is power in accountability: after my blogging confession last week that I haven't made any progress on my goal to write 50 works before next year, I got busy and did numbers 1 and 2! Neither is available for sharing, unfortunately, but let me tell you -- they were heartfelt!
'Read any good books lately?  I decided last month to re-read Stephen King's The Shining, in anticipation of the sequel being released.  When I finished that I began Dr. Sleep.  It's classic Stephen King.  And I have learned that I've outgrown Stephen King's writing.  Still -- when I lie in bed and open Dr. Sleep, it brings back happy memories of teen age summer days and books that are predictable in a good way, so I am satisfied.
I've been doing a lot of paper art lately but I can't really share because they are swaps and I don't want to spoil the surprise.  Here's just a sneak peek of a swap I sent off last week to England.
Working on these sure has put me in the mood for Christmas creating!
Yeah, yeah...I know...

There's a sequel to the Shining coming out? A book by King or a movie?

I used to devour each King novel when they hit paperback and sometimes even splurged on hardcovers when I just couldn't wait. But it has been years and years since I have read one. I am also tempted by a Shining sequel.... That book was certainly one of his best, and it would be like visiting an old friend.
