Welcome to January—a Month of New Beginnings!

This month, the YA Buccaneers are all about new beginnings. Are you starting a new writing project? Are you making goals for your personal or professional future? Come tell us about your own new beginning!

It's a new year! Whether you're a resolution-maker, a resolution-breaker, or a resolution-avoider, there's no denying that January often feels like a fresh start. That's why our theme this month is New Beginnings. And we want to hear from you! 

Are you starting a new project, or diving headfirst into a revision? Are you tackling an existing WIP with renewed energy and enthusiasm? Do you have personal or professional goals for the coming year? Let us know! We'll be sharing some of our goals as a crew—and gearing up for new things we know you'll love. (Hint, hint: new crew members will be boarding our pirate ship very soon...) We're hoping that in 2016, we can make the YA Buccaneers better than ever. 

What else will you see from us this month? Look out for "returning favorite" posts—Reading Mutiny, Learn the Ropes, etc.—as well as a few YAB-hosted word sprints to help you start the writing year off right. 

Happy New Year, everyone!
