Yearly Holiday Fade Out
So here we are — the end of 2012. Whirlwind is a very applicable word for the last couple months, and yet now that there’s a few moments to breathe one looks back and tends to feel assaulted by all that has been left unaccomplished.
Still, today is not the day for resolutions, nor for looking back in frustration. Today is Accomplishment Day. So here’s to the things we did this year, including:
- Finishing edits on book one, and submitting it to a major publisher — which includes doing our first summary, bios, and query letter
- Both of us spending November through now working on individual projects for the first NaNoWriMo in four years
- Plotting out a schedule for blog posts and editing markers and actually (more or less) sticking to it
- Creating an online presence for the series with email, tumblr, twitter, and blog
It may seem a short list, but it’s one chock full of months and months of hard work, email and chat conversations, and the constant necessity of balancing real life and writing life. All in all this has been a successful, progressive year for us and hopefully 2013 will push us on to bigger and better accomplishments.
