As some of you may have noticed, I didn't post last week. I was planning on it, I truly was, but I was also at my grandmother's house, which doesn't have wireless internet. So, instead, I decided to skip the week and take a Christmas vacation.
This year I'm going to be doing a few things different on my blog. First of all, if you will kindly look to the sidebar, you will see a box entitled 'The Epic Year of Querying'. This is where I will keep all of you updated on the progress of my writing/editing/querying. I will update it every week along with my blog post.
Also, this year I will be doing my best to put my blog more in the eye of the writing public. This means that you could see things such as guest blogs, character interviews, reviews on books, and participation in blog scavenger hunts. I'm very excited for the first of these which should be happening in the next week or two.
This will be the year that I put myself out there. That I look at my blogging as another step in my writing goals, rather than something I'm doing because it looked like fun. Where I start to truly take myself seriously as a writer. Where I don't give up on a writing project because I'm starting to feel like it needs far too much work.
It has been over a year now since I came to the realization that I am, in fact, a writer. Since the beginning of nano 2010 I have written 9 novels. 5 of those have been pushed aside as not worth the time to edit, but the rest I'm going to do something with. It may take a lot of editing. It may make me want to rip the hair out of my head, but I am going to get them published!
I have two close friends also taking part in the Epic Year of Querying with me:
I'm excited to see how each of us do in this challenge.
I would also like to invite anyone else who wants to join in the adventure to do so. Comment here and leave me your blog address. I'll make sure to add you to the total counts!!
2012 is going to be an awesome year (right up to when the world ends, of course...) I can't wait to see what it will bring!
