Annum novum, faustem felicem- in the coming year!
So, it's 2016. How did that happen, again? I mean, I could've sworn it was just Christmas Eve 2012 and I and my friends were discussing whether or not the world was actually going to end. (The majority of us were right ;)
Anyway, time to take a look back.
Let's start with some numbers, shall we?
~In April 2015, I started Flights from the Aerie
~Since then, I have participated in 7 Monday's Minute Challenges, 4 Character Encounters, and a number of blog tours and cover reveals.
~I've had 3,249 pageviews, 10 followers through Google Friend Connect, and an unknown number more by email. Shoutout to all of you- You guys are awesome!! Thank you so much!!
~In July 2015, I did Camp NaNoWriMo for the first time, and got 15,005 words.
~In November 2015, I did regular NaNoWriMo for the first time, and got to 19,843 words, thanks to my AMAZING writing buddies. *virtual hugs all of you*
~And in 2015, I read & recorded 155 books on Goodreads.
Biggest memories of 2015:
~Story Character Scenes and Chats on the Jorum :)
~A Time to Die and A Time to Speak by Nadine Brandes- Oh those endings!! However will I wait until next fall?!
~Ilyon Chonicles by Jaye L. Knight
~Watermelon gum- Because I finally got my braces off :)
~And I got a job at my town's library! *squeals*
Now, how about a look forward?
In 2016, I hope to...
~Edit Where Loyalties Lie, send it out to beta-readers, and maybe get it published before the year is out? Maybe? :)
~Put up a new story of mine (Captains of the Sky) as a serial story here on my blog
~Get back on top of things after being sick a lot in 2015
~Read the Bible cover to cover
~Read 200 books
~Post more of my writing on my blog
And lastly, (but NOT leastly!) a couple of shoutouts (in no particular order):
And all my awesome friends who constantly put up with my crazyness :)
You guys are AMAZING!! Thank you for walking through this year with me!
So here's to 2016!
