What I like most about the New Year is the chance for everyone to make a fresh start—hence a certain sense of anticipation and energy in the air. When our office reopened on January 7, someone remarked how coming back to work in the New Year can feel like starting a new semester of grade school…in a good way. People dress up and put an extra effort into looking their best. And the first few days are almost entirely devoted to “catching up” in myriad ways, whether it’s sharing stories from the break while nibbling on tasty treats, or scrolling through emails from an overstuffed inbox.
With two back-to-back special events coming up next month, a special appearance from Cory Mack on February 26 for Freedom to Read Week, and The ECO Tour with David Suzuki and Jeff Rubin on February 27, we have good reasons to be excited. So, if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to be more organized in 2013, now is the perfect time to check out the links above and mark down these two WordFest Special Events in your day planner.
One of my New Year’s resolutions is to invade some of Anne’s online space, and join her as a regular blogger on the Official WordFest Blog. I’ve already introduced myself in an earlier blog post, so I’ll try not to repeat anything I’ve said there. Suffice it to say that I’ll be hanging around on this site more often.
