How was your writing career in 2015?

 

234329-livescribe-echo-smartpen-in-useIt is the last month of the year for 2015. It is time to wrap up any business I might have before starting with a new list of things I want to accomplish in 2016. Some events has already been established for next year.

If you are a writer, have you accomplished what you want for this year? Have you been able to get to where you wanted to go? Have you been able to write as much as you had hoped for?

Some of the answers may not be to your liking, my liking. But I think it is a good idea to sit down and be honest with yourself so you can better plan for 2016. It is a good time to see where you stand on what you wanted to get done. If you are able to check off a good many, good for you. If not, figure out why you fell short. If it was beyond your control donโ€™t beat yourself up on it if you were not as productive as you were hoping for. Life will get in the way such as health and family issues to just name a few will get to the top of the list for a good portion of us. For me those did rise to the top. But thatโ€™s okay.

If you are still enjoying what you do that is a big plus. If it is not work to you, pat yourself on the back. That is something to be happy about.

To everyone who is a writer, publisher, literary agent, editor or graphic designer I hope next year is even more productive than 2015.

  1. Hi Sharon. I did accomplish a bit more this past year but not nearly as much as I had hoped. One step at a time, as the saying goes. I think this new year is going to change it all. I have hope and faith that all the work I have done up to this point is going to move my status up to the next level. At least I hope so.

    • First of all yay you for finishing another MS. That deserves a pat on the back. As for the reviews I am in the same boat so totally get what you are saying. Not all medias will work for us and I find FB page is one of them for me personally. I suspect ithings will get better for you for you are trying and I see that so please keep at it.

  2. I managed to pick up a publisher for one of my books, but things are moving slow there. I also published a short story book and took some online classes. I’m trying to sweep off my desk, so to speak, for the new year.

    Family seemed to be the biggy this year! Whew. I’m crossing my fingers I can get most of my stuff wrapped up so I can finish my YA novel nest year:)

    Happy Holiday’s!!
