Happy New Year!

Dear Readers,

I wish you a wonderful 2015 and hope it brings happiness and success your way!

As usual, my resolution involves writing a novel; this year, however, my goal is to finish one (by March, fingers crossed). Here’s a brief preview of what I’ve written so far:

Sweet summer wind teased pinches of earth desiccated and thirsty. Glistening rows of corn and soybeans bloomed, inching higher and higher in fields that spread from neat two-story houses nestled in the hills of northwest Missouri. When the moon began its ascent, the sultry air thinned, though temperatures hummed in the 80s. Most nights, thunder and heat lightning would punctuate the gentle pulse of cicadas, and heavy clouds would wring drops onto parched soil. On this night, thunder pealed and lightning cracked, but the rain never came.

Thank you for reading!

Caroline
