While that isn’t a major milestone for many, I’m looking for wins where ever I can find them. I feel like its important enough to point out, and just a big enough deal to merit a post. A year ago, I wouldn’t have thought I’d make a post like this.
I hardly posted regularly, for the first year or two I had a site, let alone every day. I’ve said before, I’m not sure how long I can keep up this pace, but so far, so good. It’s hard to decide what works and what doesn’t. My main indicators are Visits, page views, and likes. It isn’t much to go on, but I try.
On the plus side, I have a completed, edited manuscript, a working query letter, and a growing list of agents open to the kind of story Fantastic America represents. This blog has helped me continue daily writing, even on days I would rather not get out of bed. That is a big plus in my mind. Even if some of those posts were a bit more rambling than I’d like.
I write better now than I did a year ago, and hopefully that trend continues indefinitely. My confidence has never been higher, and my satisfaction with my work is higher, too. I feel like I’m right on the verge of breakthroughs in storytelling and finding the right agent for my career.
Thank you for reading along. My journey is far from over. 2021 may be my best year yet. Besides my debut novel and Midwestern Magicians, I have several short story projects underway that I hope will add to the world of the novels. Stay tuned for more!
