Sharing is Caring this Holiday Season: SO SHARE WITH ME!

Since the blog will be going on vacation over the holidays, from Dec 23rd to Jan 8th, I’d like to use my post today to thank you all. Our RMFW blog readers are a special group. Along with those bloggers. You all are the BEST of what RMFW has to offer. Good friends who understand why I constantly mutter to myself, occasionally shouting: “EUREKA” (Since I’m not a 1800’s inventor, I don’t actually shout that, but something unprintable brought to you by the letter F).

That being said, I’d love to hear your good writing news over the last year. Did you finish a manuscript? Get an agent? Publish a book? Write something you’re proud of? Give me all of it.

My good writerly news list:

  • Finished 4 manuscripts (a personal record)
  • Wrote my first YA, as well as my first collaboration project
  • Sold a project written years ago

Now let’s hear yours. I want gory details too!

  1. Your highs were higher than mine! By end of year I’ll have Bad Carma to Beta readers. It’s been a slog, but most of the 75,000 words are new this year. Presented to several new groups and didn’t dissolve into a lump of quivering Jello. Bought a mountain bike (and rode it once…) Here’s to an even better 2018!

  2. My historical mystery Wishing Caswell Dead is scheduled for release on December 20th, I’m 52,000 words into a follow-on historical set in the same location 4 years later (thanks to NaNoWriMo), I found a new and wonderful massage therapist (my old one retired), I attended two excellent writers’ conferences and registered for Left Coast Crime 2018 in Reno, I read a bunch of really good books, and I did my first ever podcast and had a great time chatting to our podcast guru Mark Stevens (http://rmfw.org/rocky-mountain-writer-108/).

  3. I released Etti’s Intended in September, just in time for the Colorado Gold conference. I’m almost done narrating Etti as an audiobook! I presented two workshops and was blessed with an amazing audience who actively participated and made each one a fascinating hour! Jalena, my book-cover-designer/daughter, went to Santorini with her long-time boyfriend, and he rented a private dinner boat and proposed to her! I have started a new story, and chapter one looks great! She’s helping me re-design my website and I *love* it! janetlane.net –And I have THE best writer friends in the WORLD. A holiday toast of gratitude to RMFW!

  4. Thanks, Julie! What an encouraging way to end the year.
    I too did NaNoWriMo–I only got 43,000 words, but it was enough for a complete first draft of my next middle grade novel. And I just had a short story published this month in Cricket magazine for kids. I also did my first writing retreat this year, and it was amazing–can’t wait to do another one in 2018.
    Here’s to another year of writing!
