Looking back, looking ahead

This blog is a year old this week and what a year it's been!

Personally, this blog has taught me a lot. It's kept me writing, for one.

I've gotten to know my fellow bloggers and that's been wonderful.

I finished the first draft of my novel, Ghost Mountain, and started the sequel.

I was able to submit Ghost Mountain to a publisher.

And they accepted it! (In fact, I got the edits yesterday.)

That's a lot of good for a year. And I expect the upcoming year to be just as full. I've been told that Ghost Mountain will be available in early 2010, so there's a start. I have no doubt that the sequel will be finished in the next year. Book three will probably be started -- or at least plotted on the whiteboard next to my computer.

Do I have other goals? Of course. There are things I want to accomplish in my personal life, crafts and hobbies I want to learn and complete and master.

But for right now, my writing goals and accomplishments are taking center stage.

Starting and finishing something is a good feeling, eh? And congrats on getting Ghost Mountain accepted. Editing can be a pest but it's so worth it.

Yes it is!

And I know editing is important, but it can be so daunting!
