As you can see, I've renamed my Wednesday post for the new year. I'll also include a question at the end of each Wednesday post (assuming I don't forget...).
Betsy Dornbusch is my guest author/blogger tomorrow. She's also an editor at the ezine Electric Spec. Her blog post is a good story about where ideas come from and how and when they develop into novels. As a bonus, Betsy is giving away a copy of her latest book, so be sure to stop by and leave a comment.
I will continue having a regular Thursday guest blogger. I'll also have occasional guests on Mondays and Fridays for writers on blog book tours. My guest spots are still open to most genres, but I'll invite more mystery, suspense, and thriller writers this year.
The A to Z April Blog Challenge 2012 is on my schedule. Sign-ups begin on January 30th and I'll remind you of that (with a link) when the time comes.
The Northern Colorado Writers Conference is scheduled for March 30-31 at the Hilton in Fort Collins. I'll be there for sure. If you're interested, check the NCW Website for the schedule of panels and workshops and the agents who will be attending.
I'll still be a contributor at Chiseled in Rock blog on Tuesdays and have a new monthly feature called "Three Authors, Three Questions." I'm mixing and matching authors and genres, including a few bestselling writers, so I expect this project to be a lot of fun.
My plan includes more writing, more photography, more manuscript submissions, more exercise, more music, more fun...more just about everything except television and snacking.

What I'm Reading
Off the Mat by Jeff Bibbey (who will be my guest blogger on January 12th). This is a novel about wrestling, meth addiction, and kids in jeopardy, written by a teacher and coach who found writing fiction was one way to deal with the hard facts of life.
The Wednesday Question
What living author would you like to invite to dinner, and what would be the first question you would ask?
