It's a new year, so I'm sure a lot of my fellow writers are looking back to see how they fared in 2019. I am as well, and...
- I published my young adult post-apocalyptic fantasy, Leaves of Fall under my pen name Patricia Lynne
- I read 30 books
- I finished writing FOUR first drafts and wrote over 220K words!
- I rewrote one story, got probably 3/4 through another rewrite as well as a secret project
- I submitted a few short stories, flash fiction, and a drabble to 13 publications. (The drabble was the only acceptance and it wasn't paying, but I submitted and that's what matters.)
But given all I accomplished, I'm pretty happy with my year. It's made me excited for 2020 and what I want to accomplish. How did your 2019 treat you and your writing? Did you reach the goals you set? Have you made plans for 2020? Or do you panster it?
And don't forget the optional question: What started you on your writing journey? Was it a particular book, movie, story, or series? Was it a teacher/coach/spouse/friend/parent? Did you just "know" suddenly you wanted to write?
