Since the end of the year is getting ever closer, I thought I’d give a brief recap of my journey so far on the road to publication. I finished writing Captive Art, edited it, sent it to beta readers, edited it again, took a writing class with agent/author/Wonder Woman Mandy Hubbard, edited some more and am now querying this project. I became a contributing blogger on YA Stands. I entered a writing contest and received a partial manuscript request from it. And I began writing my next novel, Crossing the Blue Line, which I will be working on for NaNoWriMo.
Yes, I’ve been busy, but in a good way. This year has taught me a lot about my writing style and habits and I’ve grown as a writer from what I’ve learned. I’ve been lucky enough to connect with some amazing writers/authors. I’ve been able to help others as a beta reader. And I’m looking forward to all the busyness yet to come.
With only two and a half months left in 2012 though, I want to make sure I’m using what little time I have to keep moving forward toward my goal of finding an agent/publisher. I know the stroke of twelve on New Year’s Eve doesn’t mean my time is up, but I’d at least like to know that I did everything I could this year to accomplish what I set out to do.
How about you? Did you accomplish your goals yet this year?
