Yes, I'm blatantly copying Jenny. But it's that time of year.
How did 2010 measure up?
All in all, pretty well. Not if I look at total words written. That number is way down for the year. I did get MMG one revision closer to being ready to submit, though.
I think I accomplished something better than a lot of words. Or at least as good as. I finally realized what works and what doesn't for me when it comes to feedback on my writing. And I managed to articulate that to my critique group. The thing that still makes me smile is that they immediately got it. A couple other members also spoke up at that point to say what is and isn't working for them.
I read a lot of books this year. Just look at the list on the right. And I learned so much from having read them. As I do with just about every book I read. Not just about writing either, but that sure helps.
PPW asked me to do a regular blog post for them. It's my What I Learned About Writing series. I publish here first, then PPW picks it up. Pretty shiny.
My first blog post on Red Room was picked up as a featured blog. I supposed to get a bunch of books, but haven't seen any yet. Not like I don't have enough to read.
I took a banjo class and am still practicing regularly. Performed three dance numbers and a couple "specialties" with my dance class as the Pikes Peak Center--and loved it. Took an additional tap class over the summer that really helped with technique.
A pretty dang good year.
