A new year is like a blank page to me. It feels fresh but also empty, full of possibilities and always tempting. A blank page is a new opportunity, a challenge, a commitment, a promise for fun, improvement and adventure. A blank page is the ultimate reason for writing, the writer's truest friend, a new villain—yes, of course—but the best one you've written yet.
And so, my writer friends, on behalf of all of us at MB4, we wish you lots of health, happiness and joy for the New Year, but we also wish you the most magnificent blank page that you can envision for yourself. May next year find your blank page full of awesome new stories and may the joy of writing empower your keystrokes throughout 2014 and beyond.
