Blogging/Writing Resolutions for 2013

2012 was a really big year for me in terms of writing.

I had my first publication with the inclusion of Renewal in Irresistible: Erotic Romance for Couples edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel.  I was even lucky enough to have some kind comments sent my way in the Amazon reviews of Irresistible.

This was the year I first started calling myself a professional writer, which was a really big shift for me.  I’ve always been a writer–going through papers I found a “story” I wrote when I was seven or eight, along with some highly embarrassing fanfic from highschool and a bad Christopher Pike rip-off story from the same time period.  I’ve been doing erotica for just over 10 years, but never took myself seriously.  Changing that has been exciting and a little bit scary.

I submitted five pieces.  Four were rejected, and one was accepted (for the 50 shades of glitter anthology I mentioned in this post).  I’ll pass along when you can buy and support 50 Shades of Glitter once I know more.

I worked on a novel for NaNoWriMo.  Between kids and travel I only hit 17K words, instead of the 25 or 50K I’d hoped for.

I wrote 24 blog posts here, which was far short of what I’d hoped for.  To be fair I also wrote 182 posts at my personal blog and about 40 as part of a pro-blogging job.

So what do I hope for in 2013?

1. Submit 6 or more short stories for anthologies

2. Have a full first draft of the ghost story

3. Blog here on a regular schedule.  Maybe every weekend?  One x per week.

I hope you’ll be with me on the journey.
