It’s almost over now!
2013 was a roller coaster of a year at Casa Des, and 2014 promises to deliver more of the same. Usually I get my year end inspiration in the Fall—have ever since I was a little kid. This year was different, and I didn’t really think about next year at all beyond signing up for classes and submitting a couple of manuscripts.
Instead of listing what I hope to accomplish in 2014, I think a day to bask in 2013’s milestones is in order.
In 2013 four of my stories were published!
June: Directing Traffic
July: A Sunday Kind of Love
November: Curious Sustenance
December: “Toy Run”
In December I submitted two full length novels for consideration—a Contemporary Erotic Romance to Dreamspinner, and a Speculative YA to Harmony Ink Press!
Since this week I’m pretending I’m a full time writer, that’s the extent of my list. Although, I could just as easily include the strides this old hermit has taken in learning social media—and actually being social! 😀
Oh, and I’m trying to talk myself into going to a Portland Reader/Writer event on Jan 11th, so any encouragement on that front will be appreciated. It’s scary, since connecting Erotic Romance with my face and/or real name could make it impossible for me to make a living—but it sounds like so much fun to hang out and talk about books… Jury’s still out.
Happy New Year everyone!
Good luck in the new year! It was a roller coaster year for me, too, and the last month hasn’t been good.
Happy New Year, Nancy! I hope January is much kinder to you than December was. *hugs*
Darling Charley, you are one of the bright spots of my online experience in 2013! You are absolutely delightful! I do hope you will let go of fears and embrace the fun. Any get-together that I’ve seen in any combination of the M/M romance community has shown that people are kind, fun, and accepting. Just having interacted with you as I have, I know others will be so glad you joined them.
Hugs and best wishes for the new year!!
Happy New Year, Carolyn! *hugs*
Thanks so much for your kind words! I’m so lucky to have met you, and the other wonderful folks in the M/M Romance community. I have a good feeling about 2014! 😀
