For the last two years, I felt like I've been in a cave in my mind. It's like whatever firey young woman I was in NYC just vanished and I became a happily zoned out "girl". I don't know what spawned it: having a terrible experience working in comics, getting married, moving to Cali... But I needed to just stop everything, drop my pencils, reconnect to prose writing, and learn how to cook. I needed to go into a coccoon away from publishing, ambition, career.

During that time I wrote over 1000 pages worth of Rema in prose. I became pregnant, and I had a baby. I started a new project that I have a feeling I'll be working on for a long time, and I did a lot of yoga.

Now that my baby boy is here, I feel like it's time to move on. I'm edging my way out of that cave and the weather is inviting. I look down at my new body and new spirit, at my new creative mind, and I'm transformed into something stronger, smarter, and more confident.

Practically speaking, me and my family could be in a better position with many things, but there is good reason for to feel like 2010 will be an awesome year.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I wish you and your close-ones an excellent New Year, Amy! May it bring new beginnings and be full of happiness. I am looking forward to what your new creative energy will bring forth - I never got the chance to give you feed back on your latest project, but I really enjoyed it a lot. Big hugs and best wishes! :)

Your life has progressed by leaps and bounds in such a short time (marriage, family, writing). May the new year bring you even more of everything you need to move forward, and success in all you aspire to do.

Amy, what an inspiring post. I look forward to motherhood but also fear giving myself up to it entirely and not being able to 'make' once I jump into it. You remind me how silly that thought is: we keep growing no matter what age we are and if we are motivated to draw and write then it's going to come out of us no matter what's going on at the same time. :)

What a wonderful year is ahead!
