Agh, I haven't posted on here since last year! Yikes, boy, have I been lazy!
Today is the first day of 2009. Can you believe it? 2008 just flew by, didn't it?
Well, I accomplished a lot this year. I started this blog, which has been so much fun! I also completed The Ultimate Evil and submitted it to Literary Agency #1: Firebrand. I have nearly completed the first draft of Khaladin and a children's chapter book called The Clef Brothers and started many other projects. I held my first Q and A with author Marianne Mancusi and even talked (over e-mail) with Bruce Coville. I joined my first writing forums, FW and AW. (For those who don't know, those websites are www.fantasy-writers.org and www.absolutewrite.com.) I have discovered my writing voice and networked in a way that I never have before. I tied for second place in my first writing competition and, for the first time, submitted a story to Highlights magazine. I also wrote a few articles for one of the blogs I follow: http://youngadultsciencefiction.blogspot.com.
As with previous years, I remain unpublished. But, hey, regardless of that, I did do a lot this past year. Overall, very successful and I am happy!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!! :D
