For whatever reason my X-Men post I wrote in 2012 is still getting a ton of traffic. Speaking of X-Men, who doesn’t want to see the new movie next year? I feel like there’s going to be a blog post dedicated to it next year!
I had wanted to finish writing The Guardian, the final book in my Zincian Legend Trilogy, but because of obligations at Paper Crane Books, I wasn’t able to do that. I have a calendar to write my word count goals and have a goal of having the book out by summer of 2014.
Despite the number of projects I worked on at the press, I still managed to write at least three short stories this year. They were written for various things: a writer’s group anthology, a charity anthology, and I even attempted to enter one in a contest. I might have written one or two more, but I haven’t taken an official count yet. Progress is being made on the Alice project and I’m hoping me and my co-author will be able to finish the first draft next year.
This year I tried to break out and do more events. As such, I ended up doing my first book reading. It was nerve-wracking, but I got the experience and might even venture to do another one. My presence at the Farmer’s Market is still going strong and people were happy to see me again this year. As such, my sales at the Farmer’s Market almost tripled this year and I’m so thrilled at being able to talk to the people in my community about it. If I get the courage, who knows, maybe I’ll look into getting interviewed on the radio or something.
I’m getting the hang of this whole “time organization” thing and really hope to creatively flourish in 2014. Here’s hoping!
Have a happy new year! Any resolutions or goals you’d like to achieve or set for 2014?
