The New Year is not a blank book...Its more like a new installment to a series. You know most of the characters to come. The book could completely change the tone of the series. The most important thing is to make the most of each chapter. I would like to see a world not blinded buy the idea once 12 months has past you get a blank slate. Have you ever seen the writing on a chalk board? When the chalk wants to stay behind and you try your best to get all of the previous writing off. It is still there and you can see it. Parts of the old words blend with the new ones. The next thing you know it has been twelve months again. Sometime that timespan might be one of new beginnings others of bridges burned.
