In a world obsessed with Social Networking, I thought I’d make my post Twitter friendly today (since everyone’s busy, busy, busy with New Year's Eve festivities!). Here’s my life in 2009 in a nutshell, twitter-style.
*"Sadly, future as an Olympic Walker is not to be. Knee surgery and NO MORE WALKING FOR EXERCISE sealed the deal. What am I going to do?!"
*”Book 2 in the Lola Cruz Mystery Series comes on Feb 2, 2010! Other books being shopped now. Articles coming out. More info on developing writing career @ http://misaramirez.com. Working on Bare Naked Lola now. Fun!”
*Favorite books of the year: “The Help; The Sugar Queen; Outliers. Too many to choose just one!”
*Favorite movie of the year: “I think it will be Nine or Sherlock Holmes. Also loved Gran Torino. Great Hero’s Journey. I admit, I really liked Avatar, too, though I’m not a Sci-Fi girl. Want to see Nine.”
*”Am teaching again with SMU’s Continuing Ed Writing Program. Don’t like the commute to Dallas, but love teaching.”
*”I’ve learned to stand up for what I believe. It’s not always easy, but it’s a good thing. I'm too old (43) and opinionated to turn a blind eye.”
*"Favorite mystery: The Thirteenth Tale. I think it came out the year before, but I'm always slow on the uptake with trends and what's H.O.T."
*"Hopes for 2010...BOOK DEAL for Quiz Girl, Sister Charms, and continuing the Lola Cruz Mystery Series."
*"For family and self...health and happiness. Can't ask for more than that!"
How about you? Anything stick out about your year, twitter-style? Favorite mystery book? Favorite book? Things you're looking to change for 2010?
Happy New Year!
