2012 was a fantastic year for me.
About the same time, I found out I was pregnant. Now, this was a planned pregnancy, but we were getting to the end of our self imposed trying time and were nevertheless surprised.
I still managed to get in a heap of editing this year and write over 210k of new words in almost 3 full first drafts. I feel pretty good about the writing accomplishments. Needless to say the health and online goals didn’t really get done because having baby changed things a bit.
Writing: Considering I now know Iâ€™m a plotter and not a pantser (thank you vertigo 2011) â€“ I donâ€™t find these unreasonable goals.
Finish edits on TDP Book 1. Paper Edit TDP 2&3 Write WIPSW in Feb/March Query Agents with TDP Trilogy as of April/May – Queried in March, signed in April Attend OWFI-May3-5 Query, Query, Query

- Keep up with all crit groups/partners – half way
Participate inÂ #writemotivation,Â #changewritenowÂ and other blog related hop things – fell off toward the end
- STOP PROCRASTINATING – mostly
- Work on something writing/editing/revision/plotting related every day
- Write a song as I havenâ€™t written any since 2007
I should add that I did write 2 complete first drafts and 75% of a 3rd… so technically that was in excess hehe
I’ve been more absent from #Writemotivation than I’d have liked to be in the tail end of 2012 – however we’ve been planning over direct messages bwah hah hah and we have plans for #Writemotivation in 2013. Hopefully launching the new and improved version by the end of January 2013 😀 Stay tuned!
So really, I did extremely well all things considered. But really – as proud as I am of my writing accomplishments – 2012 was dominated by Kambria’s arrival.
Love her to pieces. Hope everyone else had a fantastic 2012.
Here’s to an amazing 2013 for us all.
