Belated blogiversary post.
Monday was the one year anniversary of this blog. This also means that I’ve been writing ‘seriously’ (i.e. with possible publication in mind) for a year. That year has been exciting, eye-opening, terrifying and perhaps a little disappointing. A year ago I was certain I’d have a publishing contract by now. Luckily, before too much longer I discovered the Absolute Write forums and my expectations got a bit more realistic. I did expect I’d have something query-worthy finished by now. However, I don’t regret what I’ve accomplished this year. I think I’ve done well enough, and it leaves room for me to do better next year.
As far as this blog goes, I do think it is time for a bit of a change. I certainly intend to keep blogging twice weekly, assuming I don’t stay up all night reading on blog-days, and will try for a more regular Sunday/Wednesday schedule. But I want to do a bit more. I hope to have a few more guests, participate in more blog-fests, maybe do some different types of posts. I’ve been toying with adding some flash-fiction or segments of something longer on occasion. I’m also going to change the look and layout of the site (so if the site is down this week, please excuse us while we get things settled behind the scenes) thought not, it appears, the color scheme.
Anyway, onward and upward. Or something.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers who celebrate. Enjoy your turkey! For everyone else, see you Sunday!
