Accentuate the Positive!

It's a new month and a new year. As I said in my previous post, the last one went out on a pretty negative note, so I'm determined to start this one by concentrating on POSITIVES!

So let me focus my attention on things that make me HAPPY...

First of all, I'm so grateful for all the wonderful friends and readers I've encountered online, and I want to let everyone who reads this blog know how very much I appreciate your support.

In addition to wonderful friends, books have always had a very positive influence on my life. Reading and writing never fail to lift my spirits.

I am happiest when someone tells me they enjoyed one of my books! More than anything, I want to entertain my readers. I want my stories to be enjoyable escapes. I want them to pull the reader in, be exciting and interesting enough to keep them reading, and when they reach the end, I want my readers to smile and give a satisfied sigh.

Happy 2011! As Jay Leno said the other night in his monologue, "Twenty Eleven sounds like an upscale Seven Eleven!"

Help Aunty look on the positive side. Please share some of the things that have made you happy lately. And please tell me the last book you read that made you sigh happily when you finished it

Aunty Cindy, funny thing - I just did a blog post on Wednesday at Moonlight,Lace and Mayhem about taking a more positive outlook this year. We're on the same page!

As for your question about a book that made me sigh happily when I finished it, I'd have to say North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell - though I have to admit the book didn't make me sigh as much as the movie, due to the presence of a certain Richard Armitage. Oh. My. God.

I totally agree with you I want to stay happy this year I don't want to be down in the dumps or worrying about things.

Christmas Day was great here at my place with 5 grnadchildren totally in awe of what Santa had left them LOL.

I have just finished a book by Australian Author Tracey O'Hara A Nights Cold Kiss and it was so good it made me smile.

Have Fun

May I just echo? Richard Armitage... Oh. My. GOD! ;-)

Hi Helen,
I would have LOVED to seen all those happy little faces on Christmas morning!

Hope you are making progress on that TBR pile of yours. :-)

Yes, Aunt Cindy, that is the reaction every time I see him. He is definitely easy on the eyes and such a good actor!
