So here we are and it's....wait, WHAT?!?!? The last day of 2016? No way, Jose! B-) Anyways... I decided to do a wrap-up post of my year, 2015. I got this idea after reading Katie Grace's post. Here goes!!
This was the first FULL year that I've been at this writing 'thing'. I have several books started along with a few short stories and some fan-fiction stuff. ;) (At the rate I'm going they'll all be completed by the time I'm...50?? B-) hahaha.)
Sometime next year (by that I mean like tomorrow. haha.) you all will be getting to read a short story I'm working on. ;) I think y'all will enjoy it!! (And throw rocks at me for all the cliffhangers....*cough, cough* )
I did not enter/complete NaNoWriMo this year. *sad face* I wanted to, but November is chaos for Christmas tree farmers (and Christmas tree farmers daughters...) BUT...I'm planning to hold my own 'NaNo' sometime this coming summer. Probably June or August. Anyone interested in doing it with me? :D I'd love to have ya!!!
In preparation for this post I pulled out the notebook I use to keep track of what books I'd read (including those I'm currently reading) and...*gasp* Only 34???? I'm going to say 35 because I read another but it's not technically published yet... *wink*
