There are a couple of definitions. Times long past, and the good old days. That might explain why the composer of the song chose to go with auld lang syne. Maybe I’m just too tired, but at 5:45 a.m. (I haven’t been to bed yet), the other two choices just don’t flow well with the rest of the lyrics.

Yes, I’m a day late in wishing you a very Happy New Year…but everyone was doing that yesterday. I wanted to be a little different. (We’re just going to ignore the fact that I’ve been on a 2-day Once Upon a Time binge – and couldn’t pull myself away from Prince Charming, Graham, and August)

Because it’s so late, or early (depending on your perspective), I’m going to keep this a little short. If you have a few minutes, listen to one of my favorite musical groups. In keeping with the pretty much perfect heroes, I think the talented young men from Straight No Chaser fit right in. I mean…they’re cute. They’re wearing suits and ties. And oh buddy, can they sing!

Again, Happy New Year to everyone! And I’ll see you Monday with the first scene from the novella. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter if you want to read the rest of the story, because the first scene is all I’ll be posting on the blog.

In case you noticed, I did change the way I was going to offer the story. Because I don’t want to be a pest, I’m taking a poll. Would you like the story in weekly installments, bi-weekly, or once a month for three months? I’ll go with what the majority prefers. Thanks!
