My Year in Review – 2012

you are a writer

It’s the motto.

2012, what can I say about you.  It was the year I ended my first semester of college and began my second.  It was also the year of the summer during which I created this wonderful blog, my professional website, my tumblr, my twitter, yada, yada, yada, but most importantly 2012 was the year I claimed the title of writer and actually began to write.

Now, I have always written things, especially when I was younger, but it wasn’t until this year (this summer to be exact) that I actually began to write consistently (or somewhat) and write not just in journals but blog posts, short stories, poetry, and most of all novels.

My 2012 year has included many ups and many, many downs but honestly, I can’t change a thing because it’s almost over and I’m very proud of the things I have accomplished.

So…2013, wow, 2013…two more years until I graduate college and enter “the real world” (but honestly, that’s a lie…I’m a writer, when do I ever fully live in reality???).

So, once again 2013, what shall you hold for me?

–Well, I don’t exactly know now do I?  But I do know this, for 2013 and beyond I vow to focus more on Just Writing and less on the business side of things.  I, unlike many writers (or so I’ve heard), love the business side of things.  I consider myself to be great at networking (of any kind), marketing, selling, and so forth but in order for me to accomplish my dream, become a published author and see my book in bookstores, I must focus more on writing and less on marketing.

It’s going to be a challenge, yes, but it will be worth it, and I know if I can do this…well, with all the projects I’m working on, ideas buzzing around in my head, I’ll have a literary agent by the end of 2013 and well on my way to my dreamland.

I also want to focus more on my academics and learning how and when to balance my professional life with being a student.

Best of luck to all of you and your endevours…enjoy the new year!!! 🙂

How has 2012 treated you, what do you want to accomplish in 2013…what do you need to do first in order to accomplish your dreams?

Whimsically Yours,
