Sixty-one Days and a Year-in-Review


new yearsI started this blog last April and my posting was an infrequent, irregular activity.  Then on the spur of the moment on Halloween night I decided to do the 2012 NaNoWriMo and I accomplished a 50,000 word novel draft in 26 days.  Then, since I was on a roll, I decided to accept a challenge to blog every day through the end of the year.  There were some days when I struggled to find something interesting to write about.  Sometimes, I made it easy on myself and posted photographs.  But I did manage to write or make a blog post every day for 61 days.

I am going to try to carry on with a regular posting pattern, but probably not something every day.  My plan is to post at least twice a week,  more as I can.   So, I thank all of you who subscribed to my blog and for all the kind comments that kept me motivated to post every day.  There is more to come so please stay tuned.

And now, I am responding to the last Photo Challenge of the Year at The Daily Post.  This is to provide a visual “Year-in-Review”.   Below are some images that I took throughout 2012 that have served as inspiration (or as the final creative expressions in their own right).  Some I have posted, some you are seeing for the first time.

Happy New Year and I’ll see you on the flip side.

My inspiration has been in finding new places to people watch and make notes…

and in taking the train to explore my city…

In finding places to inspire my short stories…

And for more short stories...

Things old.....

And looking at things old……
