Happy New Year everyone! So how was 2014 for you writing-wise? Did you achieve everything you were hoping to achieve? If you made a new year's resolution did you stick to it? If I remember correctly my new year's resolution for 2014 was to write more and try to get more stuff published.
Looking back, I haven't done too badly and it's certainly been an interesting year with magazine articles and some new books out. So I thought I'd post a few photos to illustrate some of the highlights and successful bits of 2014.
I try not to harp on about the disappointments, such as being asked to try for a non fiction series with a publisher that I'm working with on some fiction books. Fab! I thought and pitched four ideas... or rather I would have pitched four ideas, had I remembered to send the email. Somehow - don't ask me how, but it ended up in my draft emails rather than being sent. And there it stayed until it was too late and the slots had all been filled. Doh!!! But I won't harp on about that!
So, onwards and upwards. Here's some highlights from 2014...
Going along to a CaniX cross event was fun. This was for an article for Dogs Monthly, which will probably be out in the February edition. Another name for CaniX is running with your dog and this lot were pretty good runners! My good friend and photographer, Rob had to do a bit of running to get the photos he wanted. Me? I just waited till they'd finished.
My New Year's resolution for 2015 is to finish the half-written books and projects and start on something brand new. What that will be is anyone's guess, but I always think half the enjoyment of writing is the prospect of new adventures on the horizon.
So, looking back at your last 12 months, what have been your writing highlights of the year? And have you made any New Year resolutions?
