By luck of they draw, or more like it, previously drawn up schedule, I have the first regular post
of the New Year. I also had the honor of writing the first post last year when LadyScribes began this blog.
It has been a great year and I know all of us have enjoyed posting and getting to know our wonderful followers. And, we were nominated as one of the top blogs for writers in 2010 at http://writetodone.com/. That was an awesome honor and took us completly by surprise. We never dreamed when this blog started readers would think we were worthy of this nomination and we certainly never expected to be named in the top twenty. For that, we thank you and hope we don't let you down this year.
Many of us reflect on the past when a New Year begins. Did we reach our goals? How were our successes or what were our success? I hope you had a number of them. What accomplishments did we achieve?
For me, I won first place in the inspirational category in a contest. That has never happened to me before and it came at the end of the year. Talk about a confidence booster. So often, regardless of our success, those doubts creep in. There is nothing that destroys them better than doing well in a contest, or being named on a best seller's list, I suppose. But, since that hasn't happened to me, I am very happy with the win.
Also, with the New Year, we look forward. What do we want to accomplish this year? Sign with an agent, sell to a publisher, finish that book, become healthier, sleep more, be a better friend. . . The list can go on and on and on. I am sure we have all heard a number of different New Year's Resolutions and have made a few of them ourselves. I know I certainly have.
So, while we are still close enough to straddle the past and look to the future, what was a wonderful achievement for you in 2010 and what is your goal(s) for 2011?
