Goodbye, 2015!

Goodbye 2015

I can’t believe that tomorrow is 2016. I have no idea where the year went.

I think I had a successful 2015. I had originally hoped this year would be the year I would have something at least ready for publication, but it didn’t work out that way. I’ve been productive so I’m still one step closer.

Maybe 2016 will be my year.

Let’s recap 2015…

–I worked on the second draft of Detective Florence which is now titled George Florence and completely rewritten

Apparently, I need to keep up making the list of writing contests. You guys really like those posts.

I’m surprised to see that I consistently worked on George Florence throughout the year. I plan the do the same next year with hopes that it will be ready to start querying by the end of 2016.

But I’ll talk more about my 2016 goals next year… or tomorrow.

I hope your 2015 was just as fabulous as mine.

Happy New Year, everyone!
