New Year’s isn’t a day that I normally use to stop and take a breath. I typically spend the day planning out my strategy for the next six months, reviewing accounts, and such. In essence, it’s just one of many days that I spend working.
This year is different. The past month has been both busy and fruitful, but mostly busy. After several years of beating on the doors and getting enough rejection letters that they’d probably be hip deep if I printed them all out, three of my poems were accepted and published in the latest Fib Review. (I’m actually more excited about these than I am about anything else I’ve done in the past year. Sad, isn’t it?)

Recently, my grandmother and I were talking while I installed some drivers on her computer following an operating system failure. She was worried that her Word had changed and she wouldn’t be able to use it anymore. Although her situation was different, her fears were an eerie reminder of the utter panic many of my friends and colleagues expressed during several other software transitions, including the dreaded WordPerfect to Word. Since I was always one of the ones behind the transitions, I tried to keep an open mind, listen to their troubles, and find solutions for them.
