What an AMAZING year! Given that I’ve only been ‘out of the closet’ since October 2013, I must admit the whole year has been a fantastic bout of achievements.
First, let’s clear up the boring stuff before I do the full list of achievements.
Week Before Last
~Transfer ‘Malcolm’ deep edits back to Scrivener
~Consider more of the options for next year’s indie project
Still considering. I’ll take about this more in the week.
~Don’t get too drunk on new year’s eve
Well… not drunk, no. But I did eat waaaaaaaaay more than I should have done. As I do in general. *sigh* But there were games! Sooooo many games and soooo much fun. I forgot how wonderful it can be to just sit and play board games (good ones!) and talk. Must get more of that in my life!
December 2014 Recap
Awesome and impressive in a way I never knew I was capable. What a fantastic end to the year. Look at this:
~Edit ‘Malcolm’ in preparation for a late January release
Actually yes. Also done. All I need now is a beta reader to give it their beady eye and then I’ll be on the last few tweaks. Also need to get the cover commission sorted but that’s for another post.
~Ensure newsletter is prepped with all latest news
Sorted. Sooooo much news! I’ll start dropping information from that update as the month progresses. Hold on to your hats, smexxy ones. 😉
~Look into video trailer options (for Sugar Dust) and start production
The script is written. The outline of the scenes I need are written. We just need to film the damn thing. I know nothing about film making – that’s the Funk Master’s department – but it should be quite easy to do. Oh, and here’s a treat; if I can’t find a suitable voice over for the bits that need it I’ll have to take on those sections myself. Urk!
2014 Complete Round Up
If you look back at my half year round up then what I’ve achieved this year is incredible. I’m so proud I could burst along my arse crack. Check this out:
~Query ‘Slippers & Chains’ with four different small presses
No need… Breathless Press took it and they get first dibs on the rest of the series!
~Complete ebook versions and releases of the rest of the Meeting Each Other series
One more to go, ready to release in January. Not quite within 2014 but who cares!
~Finalise solo website and hit ‘go’
Done yonks ago. Have you seen it yet?
~Make a start on the next ‘Slippers & Chains’ story
Start? That bad boy is done in first draft and ready to edit!
So… yes. I’m feeling quite smug right now. And that doesn’t count all the other successes like appearances in Writing Magazine and Writers’ Forum, meeting a bunch of lovely writers across Twitter and connecting with them in various ways. Last year was made of win and I can’t wait to see what follows. Bring on 2015! I’m ready for it!
