I started writing fiction nearly four years ago, in April 2008, and that was the year I also started this blog, as a place where I would post something every day—ah,well, as often as possible.
I was going through my old anniversary posts and here’s what I said over the years:
2011, I said: It IS nice to go back and read my old posts, and comments by readers, and I hope I can carry this blog another year!
2010, I said: There would be light and shade, and at least 20 posts a month! (sigh…tall order) And there would be travel posts, mixed up with writing posts, depending on where I go, and what I do. So, hopefully, I’ll have a third anniversary post, eh, and other anniversaries afterwards?
2009, I said: I want to keep up this blog for as long as I can; and I want to watch myself grow, become a little smarter, a little wiser, more intuitive, with each day, each month, each year, each post.
So here I am, and this is how the blog did last year.
This year I made more of an effort, wrote a fair bit of fiction on the blog as well.
I took part in the A to Z Blogging challenge, which means I blogged 26 days in April. That adventure, surprisingly enough, led to the book: A to Z Stories of Life and Death, which, to my utter amazement, continues to sell to this day, without much promotion, if any.
2011 was a long year, personally, and an average year, writing wise.
But I’ve stuck to fiction, written bunches, published some.
And just like I did three years ago, I find myself eager to ‘watch myself grow, become a little smarter, a little wiser, more intuitive, with each day, each month, each year, each post.’
