Can you believe that 2014 is almost here? At HousingWire, we sure can.

We've been hard at work on the December issue of our award-winning magazine -- where we'll be naming our Person of the Year, always a highly-anticipated issue.

No, we're not giving hints about this year's winner. But we are taking a hard look at the road ahead in 2014, and that's where you come in. (Yes, you!)

We want to hear what you think! I know there are no shortage of opinions out there -- especially since I recently returned from both ABS East and MBA Annual events, where I heard a wide range of outlooks on the industry from a wide range of practioners that I'd love to be able to highlight in the pages of our magazine.

In meeting with our editorial leadership this week, we decided to do something a little bit different: put a call out to the entire industry, giving everyone a chance to tell us what they think.

The most interesting, polarizing -- and yes, even witty -- views on the industry road ahead in 2014 are what we're looking for.

All you have to do is fill out a simple little form online to tell us your view on 2014, but you do have to hurry: we're only accepting viewpoints through next Thursday, and you have to be brief (around 100 words, entries longer than that won't be considered).

So -- ever wanted to tell an industry what you think? Now's your chance to play Nostradamus. Click the button below -- it only takes 2 minutes or less.
