2018 in Writing

Funny how it felt like I hadn’t accomplished that much in the writing department this year, and when I sat down to make a list I realized it’s been an awesome year! Here are some of the highlights:

1. I got an agent!

I still can’t believe it. An actual agent is willing to represent my manuscript Devonna. HOW COOL IS THAT?

2. I got real (kinda…)

I started posting some of my poetry and songs on AWA, and you guys have been so wonderful in the comments! Thank you! Here are some of my favorite pieces:

THE COALS – A Song

PERFECTLY HIDDEN – 92 words

DO YOU EVER NEED A BREAK
FROM IT ALL? – 283 words

3. My most popular writing post of 2018 is…

How to Get out of a Writing Slump.

The day I posted it, I got that lovely WordPress notification that says something like: ”Your stats are booming!” and I still get a few emails about it, so I guess I’ll make similar posts in the future!

4. I self-published a short book

That’s right, folks, and the best part is that Dean & Lily – Season 1 is available for FREE right here! To give you a taste of the D&L’s awesomness, here’s an aesthetic made by the wonderful Nimika! (Check out more of her aesthetics here. It’s an order.)

5. I wrote a book in French!

My first language is French, and even though I much prefer writing in English, there was this one project that was a bit more personal that I just needed to write in French. (It’s about my grand-father.) And I finished it! Yay! And I’m hoping to perfect it and get it published in a soon future.

Yes. I’m working on two books at the same time.

So.

And that’s it for 2018! 

All in all, it was a great year!

What were your highlights?

What are you hoping to accomplish in 2019?

Let me know in the comments!
