I read a bit of everything - indie, traditional and epublished. And, I read a lot - exceeding my 2012 Goodreads 80 book goal by 14 books. (I love my Kobo!)
|Time is running down on 2012.|
Oh - and I did my first interview on my blog with Sarah Kades! It was fun, so I plan to do a lot more of those in 2013!
I finished going through my first full novel, Secrets and Second Chances, with my critique group (Thank you, Sarah, Deb and June!). This year, I think, we have grown as a group, learning how to give and accept critiques in an efficient and easier way, and I've grown as a writer through this process.
In September, I spontaneously submitted Secrets and Second Chances to the So You Think You Can Write contest. This was the first time I'd ever done something like this - I'm surprised I had fingernails left at the end of it! I didn't final, but I still consider the experience a success because of the wonderful support and comments I received during the voting stage - from family, friends and complete strangers.
I also enrolled in online writing and marketing classes, wrote articles for my writing group's newsletter, started editing three stories, and have another three outlined.
I can't wait to see what 2013 brings!
How was your 2012?
