Today is the day I look back at the past year and see what I have done. Oh, it's easy to see what you haven't accomplished this year. (I am not going to talk about the revision or the dust bunnies that I call George and Fred).
Instead, I am going to look at what I did accomplish. Writing wise, this year I managed to meet several of my goals.
- I went to a writing conference, Moonlight and Magnolias. (For those of you who can't afford National's this is SO worth going to).
- Pitched to an Agent.
- Entered 4 contests (some were painful, others showed I was going in the right direction)
- Receieved a request for a FULL. (again, lets not look at the fact I am still finishing that revision,---oh have I told you? Guilt is on my list to work on this year).
- Blog regularly and to interact more with fellow writers (I have hermit qualities as a few of my friends can attest to)
So, tell me what DID you accomplish this year? Writing wise? Personal? Work? It can be anything.
I'm going to sweeten this last day with Giveaways for those who comment. This is to ease the bitter pill called "New Year's Resolutions". (Personally, I don't set resolutions--I set goals its far more palatable.)
I am going to give away Amy Atwell's E-Book "Lying Eyes" (and this is open to everyone. Yay!)
The rest of the items I have to limit to those within the continental U.S.--sorry! But I am going to look into alternatives the next time I do a giveaway.
I also have the hilarious and witty book by Peggy Webb, "Elvis and the Memphis Mambo Murders"
And for those who just can't let Christmas slip away so easily, "Regency Christmas Proposals" an Anthology by Gayle Wilson, Amanda McCabe, and Carole Mortimer.
I also have a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card for one lucky person. (Who can't use a card from there?)
I will award these prizes in the comment section of this post tomorrow, New Year's day. You have one week to claim your prize, after that I will have to award them to someone else.
