It’s fun to look back at the year that was. Last year, just before Easter, I wrote this post: Easter Writing Marathon.
I had big plans that Easter. I was about 12k into my new novel (the one that would become Restless) and I was hoping to hit 20k. That didn’t happen. Despite my wonderful plans, I came down with the flu really, really badly. I spent most of Easter sleeping or playing video games while coughing up all sorts of disgusting things.
This Easter I’m in a fairly similar place. I’m just starting a new novel and I’m planning to spend Easter racking up the word count. But this time, I’m prepared. I’ve been drinking plenty of orange juice and taking vitamins, and I WILL NOT get sick this time.
In a month or to I’ll be querying that novel I was writing last Easter. I wonder if next Easter I’ll be querying this one?
I love that I did eventually write that 20k I was hoping for. In fact, I made it to 77k. I love that no matter what challenges have come across my path in the last year, I worked hard and achieved what I set out to do. Yay me!
What were you doing this time last year? What have you achieved since then, and how have your goals changed?
