Year in Review: 2018

So, 2018 has come and gone. At the beginning of the year, I made some “anticipations” for the year. Let’s see if how I did.

    • Work on The Christmas Wish with aim of self-publishing by Christmas

I have worked on The Christmas Wish all year long, though I didn’t manage to publish by this Christmas. Looking back, that might have been too lofty a goal.

    • Jump start the Big Project and work for self-publishing in 2019

I’m still focused on The Christmas Wish so the Big Project has remained on the backburner—for now.

    • Finish “Better When I’m Dancing” and start to turn my Soldier Verse drabbles into a proper story

I’m so close to finishing it. So close. Then I can finally turn Soldier Verse into a proper story.

    • Work on some original pieces

I tried. It didn’t really work out thanks to laptop issues. But I did try.

    • Network more with authors, both in and out of fandom

Yeah, I don’t really think I did that. But I still love everyone I do talk to about writing!

    • Continue my regular posting schedule on this blog

Things got a bit bungled toward the end but I think I did a decent job of that.

    • Read 13 books this year

I read 14!

  • Review more books on my other blog

And on a personal note:

    • Exercise more and lose some weight

Yeah, that didn’t really happen. Though I don’t think I really gained any weight. So I guess that’s a win?

I know I had been recapping each month as a “chapter” and at some point…forgot. I apologize for that, especially if you were really enjoying that. Maybe I’ll try again now in 2019.

Well, that was 2018! Let’s see what 2019 brings! In my next post, I’ll write up my anticipations for the year.

And of course:

Happy New Year!

happy new year
