    That End of Year Post: 2015 Edition

    I’m not going to lie – I accomplished very little writing this year. I don’t feel terrible because I accomplished other things and reached some other goals, but this is the first year I haven’t finished anything since 2010. From Day One, I had all kinds of issues leftover from 2014, because that was, in hindsight, a rougher year on the old brain than I initially thought. In January, I took the month off from writing after finishing my 2014 NaNo project, because I was depleted, and I thought some extra distance would help. For the record, it didn’t, and I half think I was just procrastinating because I didn’t want to edit…

    2014 – Year of Discord

I talked about my year over here, but as far things I’m glad I did…I’m glad I entered the two contests I entered. Nothing too exciting happened, but I did them, and I know how to find out about them now. I’m also glad I started hanging out with a friend at a coffee shop.

    The Amazing 2013…

    I had such high hopes for this year. Thirteen is half of my favoritest number, making it favoritest odd number. (Yep.) But alas, it just didn’t live up to the hype. I spent most of the year watching all my hopes and dreams fall to ruin around me. cue slow melodramatic drum solo “Here dreams. Over here. No, not there. I said NOT THERE!!” hiss I just knew if any year would be great it would be 2013. I was working on something that didn’t have blood-sucking fiends in it for the first time in 5 years! (And only the 2nd time in 10!) I loved what I was writing.…
