Summing up the last year seems to be a blogging tradition, so I shall bow to tradition:
I wrote two books in 2009, more than fulfilling my resolution from the previous year.
I hoped to query more agents (only 4 sent out–which were rejected. I decided to retrench before embarrassing myself further), but I altered my plan when I realized I should write more. I think my books are pretty good, but I know they can be better.
I started this blog and met 10 wonderful followers (thank you guys!!) as well as discovered a rich blogosphere that I could access for support and friendship. Probably the BEST discovery of 2009.
My husband finished his Masters degree. I’m so proud of him (off the topic of writing but had to mention it).
I told my boss that I didn’t want to run my own lab (it would have left me no time for writing or anything else), which was very scary to admit out loud.
For 2010, I plan to write at least two more books, get good enough to find an agent, and make even more blogging friends.
I hope you fulfilled all your resolutions (at least the ones that mattered) and have a Happy New Year!
