2021 / A Writing Year in Review

Celebrating 2021…

For the past three years, I’ve been taking part in Julie Hedlund’s 12 Days of Christmas for Writers. As part of the end-of-the-year process, she challenges writers to post their SUCCESSES (rather than New Year’s resolutions) for the year. I think it’s always a good idea to focus on the positive. There’s so much we can be thankful for going into a new year.

So, here’s a list of my “good news stories” from 2021…

  1. I had two stories published in magazines this year! Yay!
  2. Five of my stories were accepted for publication in magazines. Four of them will be published in 2022. (Two of them in January!)
  3. I submitted 22 stories for various magazines over the course of the year. (Hmm. 22 going into 2022.)
  4. I completed or worked on several manuscripts: 6 new magazine stories / 6 reworked magazine stories / 7 PBs / 2 MGs (with lots of revisions included).
  5. In 2021, I offered free PB/MG critiques called #3WordsCritiqueGiveaway. I did four giveaways in January, April, August, and November. In total, I critiqued manuscripts for 17 people!
  6. I logged 100+ books read in Goodreads this year.
  7. Another calendar of my photos was completed.
  8. Speaking of photography, I just finished another year of 52 Photos posted for my #2021picoftheweek Photography Challenge!

Here’s to 2022…
