dreams rising like bubbles

Alrighty then! I’m excited. The final year of the first decade of this century begins in twenty-four hours. I love new beginnings! I’ve got plans for 2010, yes I do. I’m leaving 2009 in pretty good shape, writing-wise. I got my copy of The Horror Zine anthology yesterday. It’s a beautiful edition. The artwork is wonderfully sinister and creepy, and I’m so glad to see Ghost of Roses–which I thought would never be published–in its new home. I’m very pleased.

So, time for bobbles and triumphs, the sequel.  Here’s how it went in 2009.
