Wrapping up 2013

Well it's near the end of the year, so I thought I'd just write today about.... My Writing... and where I'm at with it.  Hopefully a year from now I can look back at this post and say, WOW!  Look at you!!!

Actually, I say that to myself today because 2 months ago I wasn't anywhere close to where I'm at today with my writing!  And I wouldn't have believed anyone that would have told me that I would accomplish this:



  • Become a member of SCBWI!!!
  • Participate in PiBoIdMo and end with 38 ideas!!!
  • Establish a three hour block of writing time that's JUST for me to spend on creative writing (picture books, etc.) each week!!! ( Thank you to our beloved neighbor for her time with my little guy)
  • Write three brand new manuscripts!!!
  • Get 5 people to give me critiques on the first manuscript!!!
  • Drag out all of my old writing materials and dust them off (cough, cough)!!!
  • Re-read and revise one of those old manuscripts!!!
  • Be given (by my supportive husband) and start reading the 2014  Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market!!!
  • Be given (again by my supportive husband) and start reading  Writing Picture Books: A Hands On Guide From Story Creation to Publication by Ann Whitford Paul!!!
  • Be writing post #117 on this blog!!!
  • Have 67 followers!!!  A BIG thank you to all of you....especially those that give me feedback!  I love your comments!
  • Feel Accomplished and Motivated!!!  🙂

To my fellow writer's out there.... I hope you are feeling just as accomplished yourselves... if not, DON"T GIVE UP HOPE!!!  It's amazing what can happen in just a short amount of time!  Keep your head up and your pencils (fingers) to the paper (keyboard)!!!
