One-month celebrations

Postby Administrator1 » Tue Feb 07, 2006 10:14 am

In this week's newsletter, we asked readers to stop by the Forum to share their writing accomplishments since January 1. Take a moment to enjoy your successes and tell us what's working for you this year.

This is probably a VERY stupid question... but is this where we post our accomplishments? Or is there another forum you're talking about? (I didn't get the newsletter)

Yes, you can post your accomplishments here.

The newsletter will be out later today. If you'd like, you can add your e-mail address to the list here to receive the weekly e-newsletter.

i don't know how much of an accomplishment this is
but i've started writing
not every day as i had planned
but at least 5 out of 7 days
it's hard to break my habit, of getting home from work
turning on the tv, turning on the computer
and just sit in my chair and watch/surf
the other day i realized that 5 hours had gone by
and i had done nothing
one of my favorite sayings was
DO SOMETHING
POSITIVE AND PRODUCTIVE ..TODAY !!
so i guess a major accomplishment is knowing that
something must change if i want to be a writer

This month I won my first writing contest, taking first place in the Scribes Valley 2005 short story contest with my short story "Nona." I also completed a new 5000 word short story that I'm very pleased with, submitted a couple of short stories to contests, entered a "first chapter" contest (with the first chapter of my WIP: a chick-lit murder mystery), and launched myself fearfully into Middle Book Hell with same novel.

Not a bad month, all told. I'm looking forward to great things all year!
Cheers ~
Claire

Since the beginining of the year I have written a little something everyday. I actually have three stories currently in the works. I will be interested to see which one is completed first. :)

I wrote a CD review for a friend's band. My deadline was February 1, and I finished on January 27. It's posted on cd.baby.com. Burning River Band, "1000 Miles," check it out! Music always helps me to write. :)

Got two short stories, one fiction, one non, published. Started three different other stories, which could pan out into full blown novels. Entered a writing contest, which I managed to make to the final rounds in. So yeah, this year aint been too bad for me writin.

Let's see, in January I managed to write the second in a series of eBooks on Effective Websites for Writers, convert it to a .PDF file, upload it to Payloadz, and start selling it online (which required redesigning the sales page and writing sales copy); wrote at least a blog post a day to Writer's Edge (and I do consider my blog writing as serious and legitimate writing); spent way too much time posting on fora like this; produced an effective Google AdWords ad (shorter IS harder!); designed a graphic and print ad for a newsletter; while walking my daily mile, composed an elegant poem on winter in southern California and forgot it by the time I reached home; and scribbled and sent about 350 email messages. Whew!  No wonder I'm tired.
