Happy Chinese New Year! Gong xi fa cai 恭喜发财
Today, February 5, is the beginning of the Year of the Pig and the Spring Festival which celebrates the end of the coldest days of winter. There is something I can celebrate. And I love New Year dumplings. Yummy. In fact, I love Chinese food. Not the Americanized versions, although many of them are good, I have a fondness for traditional fare. Friends own a Chinese restaurant, so I have access to almost homemade Chinese food less than five minutes from the house. I am getting hungry.
What does this have to do with writing? Well, if you haven’t started on your New Year resolutions, or you feel you have dropped the ball, today is your lucky day. You can start again.
Keep on writing.
