I have had a ton of events happen to me in 2011. I got laid off on June 30, and instead of doing the normal thing which is to be depressed about circumstances in my life. I took action instead, and built up my writing career. I published an ebook in August, and another in October. I have more in store though, so I will be churning out more ebooks. I was laid off for three months, and then I got another job. I even got rid of the toxic people in my life to since they are in another state I will hopefully never deal with them again. I started up several projects that I cannot wait to get into.
I even cleaned my room in preparation for a new desk and chair. I have had this blog for a year in January, and 2011 is the year I received my laptop too. I achieved my goals of becoming a published author even if it is an ebook, received my first rejection, and finally got my ereader. I plan on setting up a new blog for writing reviews on writing related books too. I have planned on publishing more ebooks too while working on the first book in a trilogy. Then after I finish editing it I plan on trying to get an agent with it hopefully. I plan on trying to balance writing, school, and work more.
I even set up a twitter account, Facebook fan page, and I am a member of several writer forums. I have even been introduced to Second life too. I have made a ton of friends, and formed healthy relationships. 2011 was a big year since it set in motion my writing career.
Anyone else with the goals they achieved this year, and life changing events this year?
See you in the New Year!
