Wow, I can't believe that the year is almost over. So much has happened this year. Although, I can say the same thing for the last couple days too. I'm finally back home and not hanging around at airports or on airplanes. Hooray!
Anyways, so much has happened this year. I've made writer friends and critique buddies. Revised a few different WIPs. Read so many books. Co-founded this awesome blog. And I wrote two books! This was also a year that I finally delved fully into the world of querying agents. I'd queried in the past, but it hadn't been anywhere close to the scale that I did this year. And okay, I haven't found an agent yet, but I'm certain that something good will be happening within the new year. So many great things have happened recently, things that have kind of been building blocks toward better and more.
Yes, years end usually brings about optimism for a more successful upcoming year, but that's great, especially when one acts and makes a plan to stick to what they want to accomplish in the new year. Form New Years Resolutions more like goals and decide what you really want to achieve in the upcoming year.
I know with my "goals list" for 2010, I wrote down quite a bit of stuff I didn't get to. Maybe because I didn't work as hard at the beginning of the year as I did at the end of it, but also because I think I made it more like the kitchen sink of deciding later what I wanted to pick out of it. The bad point about that, is that it's easy to get overwhelmed and think I'm not getting to everything I wanted to achieve.
Anyways, what's been your most satisfying achievement this year? Do you write out New Years Resolutions?
