Happy New Year, 2013

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone. I can’t believe it’s 2013 already. It seems like only yesterday it was the start of 2012.

Last year was an amazing year for my writing journey. I have a number of first drafts sitting there waiting to be edited into something that is suitable to submit to publishers, a number of longer works in progress, and a number of opportunities to writing short stories and blogs. I have also met some wonderful writers both online and in person, and have enjoyed being part of this community.

Things are looking exiting for 2013 too. So far I’m planning to take part in the 12×12 challenge again as well as joining Sub Six, a group to help push us to submit the manuscripts for 6 picture books, one every two months. I’m hoping this will give me the kick I need to actually submit something, instead of just sitting on my stories. I have also rejoined the Chapter Book Challenge for this year.

I’m also eagerly awaiting the arrival on a book about blogging a book that I ordered before Christmas. I have a few book ideas that I’m trying to work out whether to write them as a blog or as a book or both. I’m hoping this book will help me work out the best course to take.

Thank you for following my journey this far, and I’m looking forward to all the wonderful things 2013 will bring.
