2012 Writing Accomplishments

I am sitting here trying to think of what I have accomplished with my writing in 2012.
Below is my short list (in no particular order)


I wrote a children's column each month for Two-Lane Livin' Magazine.
I joined an online PB critique group in March.
One of my stories that I submitted on the Rate Your Story site rated a #2!
 I attended the WVWriter's Conference in June.
One of my MG manuscripts came in 2nd HM in their annual writing contest in the children's category.
 I had an article published in our local newspaper, The Jackson Herald.
I participated in Cynthea Liu's Red Light Green Light. I actually received a green light a couple of times.
 I got brave and attended Open Mic sessions at our local library.
I won first place in our Library's Appalachian Writing contest last fall.
I participated in PiBoIdMo in November and came up with 30 picture book ideas.

I started and finished writing my second MG manuscript!


Get more organized.
Have a publisher pick up one of my PBs or my MG novel!
Research how to do an e-book. I have written an informative book that I want to put in e-book form.
Improve my craft and . . .
write more manuscripts!

How about you? Want to tell us about your accomplishments or goals?

  1. Great goals!
    I'm goaling to find an organization method that works better for me than things I do now.

  2. These are fabulous accomplishments! I like your goal of getting your pb and mg published!

  3. Hi Janet,
    What great accomplishments and worthy goals.
    I'm certain you will attain them because of your passion and resolve.
    Happy New Year,


Thank you for your comments. I love comments!
