Another Year Gone

I haven't had this blog for long, but today I'm another year older so I figured that was due a post somewhere in my blogging world (or lack of blogging world as has been more of the case lately). Sometimes I like to sit back and reflect on what I have accomplish because it gives a nice break from all the other times I think about all the things that I want to but haven't yet.

In the past year, I have written a fair number of words. I wrote 50,000 words in 13 days for nanowrimo. Overall, I've written in at least five different novels. I finished my first rewrite of a novel, going from 23,000 words to 50,000 words. And I have made many blog posts, even with the last few months being as sparse as they have been. It's been a decent year of writing and I hope my next year will have even more.

And I've started reading again. That is something else I'm very happy for. While I may not be exactly where I wanted to be by the time I reached this age, I'm still doing things that I want to do and can keep going from here.

So, as I'm another year older, I'm not so much wiser but determined. It's going to be a very busy, creative year.

Nano looks interesting. So far the most I've done in a month is 20k. I should challenge myself.
Allow me to give good wishes for a great year. :)
