Happy New Year!

Well, it is that time once again, where we spend weeks on end getting used to writing a different number on documents, letters and checks, physically scratching out the mistake we’ve made regarding the date. Kind of poetic, actually, when you think about it. Now, I’m not much for ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ myself, but there is something to be said for having a large starting point in one’s memory. No one makes ‘Mid-spring resolutions’; they just change what they are doing, and go forward. And when pressed for info, many people look in their minds for some sort of memory marker – to help remember ‘when’ they made a change, and to use that to gauge their success or failure. So, maybe the New Calendar Year is a decent time to start a new challenge.

Here’s hoping that your challenges are met with success!

About Derek

Derek Dykes was born on his Grandmothers' birthday in January 1973. The son of a local businessman and an artist, Derek and his brother Charles both grew up in an environment where creativity was encouraged. While earning healthy grades and participating in activities was important to Derek, they always took second place to what really mattered to him - his friends and family. Derek found himself thrust into adulthood when his father died. Taking care of his responsibilities meant that his college education was put on hold. While he was unable to afford classes, he privately continued his studies in art, literature, archeology, Celtic history, and a cornucopia of other subjects that interested him. Derek moved home to Mobile, Alabama in early 2008 after living away for almost a decade. His journey home was a catalyst for the foundation of his first novel, MADNESS. In addition to writing, Derek enjoys photography, parenting and using any medium available to bring the creations of his mind to life. More of Derek's work can be found by visiting www.derekdykes.com
