To all writers, I have a simple message for you today: keep working, keep believing in yourself, and keep writing!
Do not give up!
Have you done some writing today? Did you put pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard and cranked out so many words? Remember not to worry about New Year’s resolutions–they often fail. Simply try to develop a discipline about the craft of writing, and never wait for inspiration. It is the act of writing that creates more writing.
Remember, your writing opens yourself and your readers to the worlds of your imaginations, and that is a true blessing.
After having had an interesting discussion this morning with my wife, –thanks to Liz!– I wanted to offer a small bit of advice to writers. Do not wait until the New Year to make a resolution to write more or be more productive; begin today! Do not wait for the demarcation of the next annum to take pen in hand or sit at the keyboard; rather, understand that your determination to write can begin any day and should be a continuing act of self-discipline. So, my simple desire for you is to write today and everyday. Make today the beginning of a commitment to writing!

Hello to everyone who might read this post. If you are worried about bad luck on this day, Friday the 13th, please relax. This date is no more dangerous than any other; people simply notice when bad things happen and connect it to the date.
If, however, you are a member of The Knights Templar, The Poor Fellow Soldiers of Christ, and the year is 1307, then you probably are not going to have a very good day. A great deal of mystery surrounds the actual events concerning The Knights Templar, and as such, has become a fertile soil to grow the roots and trunks of many a mystery and thriller novel. We do know, however, that King Philip the IV, sometime called “The Fair,” although today that would be more ironic in judgement of his actions than an accurate portrayal, needed money.
The Templars had discovered something in Jerusalem during the Crusades–again no one is sure what that was–and they became powerful and expanded rapidly. Their power became so strong that they created the first real banking system in Europe and protected, for a fee, the money of their depositors.
Philip, coveting their funds, ordered their capture under cover of night. The day this happened, of course was Friday the 13th, 1307. For the next few months, torture and burning at the stake was visited on the leaders and many members. What is also strong material for writers is that the bulk of the fortune was never found, and many escaped, leaving questions: what happened to the escapees? where did their fortune go? and what had they discovered?
So yes, if you lived in 1307 and were a member of this order, it would have been prudent to be careful on that day. Today though, it is simply another day.
My suggestions are enjoy yourselves today, have a treat, go to a movie, read a book, spend time with your loved ones, and simply live life!
Have a great Friday the 13th!
