It's that time, time to look back upon the past year and contemplate all the things that have transpired. Today is the last day of 2011 (and my Grandfather's birthday! Happy Birthday Pappy!). Whether you're glad or sad, tomorrow is a new year.
This has been a year of firsts for me in a writing sense. I started my first book. Wrote my first words. Finished my first chapter (and a few more). Started a blog. Wrote eighteen posts on that blog! Met a loving community of fellow blogger/authors. All encompassing these things... I took the first big steps in fulfilling a dream of mine that I've always had. This has given me a great sense of accomplishment. It has been one of the most scary, yet fulfilling things I have ever done for myself.
Writing aside, it's been a great year. My husband and kids have all been healthy. I think I may have finally found something that is working on my migraines (knock on wood). I still have my job that most days I love to go to and also reminds me, on an almost daily basis, how truly lucky I am. I am blessed with a wonderful family and friends.
How was your year? Are you glad it's over or sad to see it pass? Did you have anything really great happen this year?
Hi, I'm YA author, Jessica Salyer. I'm busy writing down the current story in my head and trying hard to be patient while querying. Thanks for stopping by. You can also find me at www.JessicaSalyer.com
