When it is YOUR year, it means it will be a year of important and possibly life-changing decisions. It's the year where big things happen that change the course of your life.When I look back on my last year of the tiger in 1998, I realize that was the year I decided to pick up and leave: I drove cross-country from Oakland to Boston to pursue a career in book publishing. It was certainly a decision that changed the course of my life! By the following year, I became an editorial assistant at Little, Brown.
Happy New Year, everyone. May all of your years be GRRRRRREEEEAT!

Author Justine Larbalestier (Liar) has been having a series of wonderful guest posts on her blog (I myself will be contributing one soon!) In particular, I love this guest post about the importance of diversity, a topic near and dear to my heart.
