KTwizzle's Year in Review

Updated: Aug 5, 2019


Yo, I pwned this year.


In terms of my writing career, I mean.


According to Goodreads, I read over forty-one books and 12,713 pages (what's good?!). And that doesn't even include all the reading I did as an editor.


Stop the bus. As "editor"? When did this happen?


Well I'll tell you, but imma back it up first.


The first best-thing-ever to happen to me this year was that I got published.

^ Pssst! That's MY story, yo! ^

See that? >>>>>>>


That's MY name.

MY words.


Out for the world to see in Barren Magazine.


So that was Impossible Writing Goal One.


^ That's ma name, dog! ^

Then, I was coasting on cloud 9, rushing to put together this author website and Facebook page (ta-DA!) when I saw that Barren Magazine needed some help managing their load.


(Barren is brand-spanking new, an August 2018 baby that garnered a measley 50,000 reads in 90 days). So I sent the Executive Editor my resume and BLAMMO! The second best-thing-ever happened to me and I was taken on as a contributing editor.


Which prompted this SUPER exciting but also very silly Twitter post >>>>>>>>>


Silly Barren. Mama ain't gots no kids.


So now I'm published, got my sites set up, I'm volunteering on the editorial staff of a literary magazine reading all the things (hashtaggoals). I even have another [paid] gig lined up in January where I'll be editing content online in a freelance capacity (hashtagexperience -- WHUUUUT!).



Then I did the third best-thing-ever, which was to sign up for NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month program, during which participants are supposed to write a whole book, buuuut I settled for the goal of completing the book I've been working on for the past fifteen years.


I'm pretty sure that counts.


Now, I didn't actually meet my goal, so I have a new one (finish Draft One by the New Year), but even though I didn't #win NaNoWriMo, my sweetest of husbands ever brought me a pin to celebrate my progress. He's a good egg.


I can't wait to see where God takes me next year!



Did you accomplish any goals this year?


Leave a note in the comments so we can celebrate!
