Happy New Year from ‘Two Drops of Ink’


Good morning all,

I just wanted to drop a quick line to say Happy New Year to all of our loyal fans, readers, contributing writers, and to our staff.

First, let me address my fellow wielders of the pen (or keyboard). What will 2017 mean to you? Let’s not talk about boring resolutions, let’s talk about the possibilities for you as a writer. Will this be the year that you finally write that book? Will this be the year that you make a commitment to submit your writing to blogs, magazines, journals, or poetry reviews? Will 2017 be the year that you start your own blog, or make the commitment to post on a more regular basis, which will help to grow your audience? I encourage all of you to look ahead with enthusiasm and a positive outlook for your future as writers. We at Two Drops of Ink wish you much success!

To our followers and readers:

I want to thank you from the depths of my heart for your time. Yes, that’s right, your time. You chose to invest your precious time reading our posts, sharing our posts, commenting on them to show your appreciation, and to encourage the writers with whom you engage. Thank you! Without you, we simply have a blank page with words. Your presence brings the life’s blood that writing requires to help make a difference in the lives of people.

So, I’ll close by saying thank you. Thank you for being a part of our family, and for raising our site to the successful literary blog it has become.

Happy 2017,

Scott Biddulph/Editor-in-Chief

He and his family enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains where they live—especially their screened in back porch where they love to bird watch. ******** ~ "I love realism. I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul—to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real-life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told." ~ ~Scott Biddulph~


  1. Thank YOU Scott. And thanks to all of the other folks who make this blog a real, living, breathing being to help writers.I had my first submission published here, and I want to – and will – do more.

    Speaking of resolutions, 2017 will be the year I begin working with an editor for submission of my memoir. I am anxious, but excited to start this next writing chapter.

    May 2017 bring good things for you, your helper bees, and all those who are fans and consumers of Two Drops of Ink.
