This is it.
Two months of planning and preparation, lifetimes of appreciating the power of the written word in all its forms, and here we are: The first day of a year we've devoted to perfecting our craft. We are writers. We are storytellers. We are leaves on the wind. Watch how we soar.
Thank you for inspiring us, Mr. Bradbury.
I am honored to be counted among you, fellow wordsmiths, and I can't wait to see what the next 52 weeks have in store for us!

One draws motivation from whatever one can. I'm grateful to Milo and Simon for providing this opportunity and I'm looking forward to matching strides with the daring participants who join us. Let's hit the ground running and never look back. Really, don't look back. And don't slow down lest Something Wicked This Way Comes.

It's going to be a lot of fun. There will be disasters. There will be triumphs. But the very best of luck to everyone who has come along for the ride.
Let's get writing ...
