Celebrating the Odd Years

Happy Wednesday and happier 2013!!

Jennifer the scribe, here and I am so happy that our calendar has turned forward into the year of the prime numbers.  While most people think 13 is unlucky, I love the power of the prime. Why am I so happy, you ask?  Most of all things big and positive have happened in my life during an odd numbered year.  Let me explain.

1973 – Jennifer was born

1989- Jennifer got her first car

1991 – Jennifer graduated high school

1993 – graduated college earning an A.A degree

1995 – graduated college earning a B.A. degree

2007- birth of Jennifer’s first (and only) child.

2009- Jennifer joins CTRWA and RWA

2011- Jennifer signs with literary agent, Eric Ruben

Now, there are a few minor exceptions (I was married in 2004, okay so something positive did happen in an even year). But almost everything truly positive and memorable happened in an odd numbered year.  Freaky, I know. So, I hope you can understand my excitement over 2013. Now, I’m not psychic and I have no idea what good thing is going to happen, but I can guarantee you it’s going to be worth writing down on this list of major life goodies.  So, tell me.  What are your 2013 plans? What do you look forward to most this year?

  1. Fun factoids about you, Jennifer.

    I see this year as a major turning point for many things, both globally and in my little microcosm of life. It’s going to be a big year for publishing and I imagine we will see the paradigm shift for both trad and indie-pubbed authors. My 2013 motto is “keep on keepin’ on.” I’ll be perfectly happy to see book two and three of The Chronicles of Lily Carmichael completed in the next year. I’m on track for book two to be released this summer. Beyond that, I’m hoping to see some household projects come to fruition and for my hubby and me to have some fun traveling. I’ll be at Epicon in Washington in March, Holland later in the spring, and Nashville for my stepson’s wedding in September. If first quarter sales skyrocket all of a sudden, I might even make it to Atlanta for the RWA Nationals in July. It’s going to be a busy–and hopefully fruitful–2013!

  2. Fun Jen. You joined CTRWA in 2009, when I joined in 2010 you were VP. One of the best things I did was join CTRWA. Your odd numbered dates are fascinating. My first marriage was 1955, but my first child was 1957, 2nd, 1959 and 3rd 1963. Graduated design school BFA 1973. Divorce 1978. My second marriage 1993. Looks like the odd dates are more exciting, except for that most eventful divorce in an even numbered year. It would be interesting to lay it out like you did, sort of in a two column sheet, one column marked positives and one column marked negatives.

    This year of 2013 I expect to finish my WIP and attend the RWA conference. Then maybe in 2015 I will finish my Coney Island painting project. Thanks for a thought provoking post.
