Another Year Is Ending

 

In review…

Now that’s Christmas is over it’s time to focus on the New Year.   2017 was a fairly good year overall both personally and as a writer.

I saw a few of my writings published:

The Hungry Chimera Literary Journal (two poems)

Doll Hospital Journal  (essay)

Motionpoems, Inc (film credit/interviewed both poet & film-maker)

Piker Press (poem)

 

I took on a role as a moderator (in a team of four) for Tuesday Serial; as well as a moderator for the weekly THURSDAY TALK SHOP over at Facebook with We PAW Bloggers (of which I plan to step down to a lesser role for the coming year).  I’ve created and am trying to grow (hopefully to add a few volunteers to help) Serial Fiction Digest (Twitter, Facebook, blog).

Looking ahead…

2018 is looking to be a year of crossroads for me as a writer.  I plan to work on a romance (clean) novel as well as continue to plan out another.  In the past, I’ve focused mainly on flash fiction, poetry and serial fiction.  I will continue with these forms, but gradually shifting some of my attention/time to writing a book-length story.  My goal is to be not just a writer, but an author.

I will be taking on a role as a citizen journalist for The Crossover Alliance (a Christian publishing company) of which I am very excited about.

 

What about you?  How was 2017 for you as a writer?  Have any specific goals for the new year?

(for each comment, I will stop by and read your most recent blog post! 🙂 )

  1. As a writer, 2017 was one of my better years. I give credit to a Facebook writing club and some good writing friends I connected with throughout the year. I wrote a good amount of flash fiction and posted some on my blog. I also tried my hand at writing in different genres. But one goal eluded me, but I have myself to blame. I wanted to be published this year, but I didn’t submit anything. I was too cowardly to step out there.

    I’m pulling for a better 2018. I want to write a short story a month. And thanks to a friend, I think I have a good formula to accomplish it. And second, I want to submit five stories to contests and publications. This will take some research and a lot of courage. But I believe I can.

  2. Great post and congratulations on your successes and goals! I haven’t given my goals a lot of thought yet, but I suppose I want to write on a more regular schedule. I want to procrastinate less and produce more. Happy 2018!!

  3. Congrats! Hope 2018 will be better than 2017.

    In 2017 I’ve had two poems published and wrote 30 new poems for a new feminist poetry chapbook. Which I hope to revise/edit and complete in 2018. Along with some other new and old works.
