Simply Jan – A Writing Year in Review
This has been a transitional year for me in writing. I shed my pseudonym and started writing under my real name. I took the plunge and risked sharing my writing with everyone. I completed the May Blogathon for the second year in a row, successfully finished a couple of other blogging challenges, and even tackled NaNoWriMo for the first time. I didn’t write 50,000 words, but did I ever write a lot!
I have some very specific, very ambitious goals set for 2013, but before moving ahead, I thought I would first take a look back.
My Five Most Viewed Posts of 2012:
What Good Writers Do (I have to admit that I really don’t understand why this would be one of my top posts. The only thing I can figure is that a lot of desperate wannabe writers like myself stumbled on it through Google. I’m just sorry I didn’t have anything more substantive to offer!)
Melancholy (This one was also a surprise to me.)
A Sandusky Sermon (Yes, there was much passion behind this one.)
What Is the Right Kind of Princess Story? (There was much passion behind this one as well. I tapped into my suppressed inner feminist this year in a big way.)
Single Mothers (Don’t mess with Mama Bear!)
Five of My Personal Favorite Posts of 2012:
Wind Blown (As you can tell, wind has long been a powerful symbol in my inner/dream life.)
And Now I Call It “Rush” (There’s that inner feminist again!)
A Matter of Perspective (This summarizes what my year of writing has felt like for me – a total mixed bag.
Guest Post: The Associate Pastor of Paws (This is by far the most fun I’ve ever had writing a post.)
I Live You (I do! I really do!)
