I can't believe it's 2012!  There is something about a new year that gives you a clean slate.

Let's take a look at what was accomplished in 2011!

*First book came out, and many book signings and school visits!
*Earned a free trip to Canada with Usborne Books
*Moved 3 times! (not by choice) while being part of the strangest flood in history
*Survived a car accident, and got a new Mini Van
*Repainted my house, cleaned it out, and redid the basement (even if not by choice)
*Diagnosed my oldest with Aspergers, and am working to help him integrate into everyday life
*Visited Disney World
*My husband graduated Nursing School and got a job, to begin this year!
*Have many manuscripts that need to be polished, but have great potential!
*Joined 3 critique groups! And managed to keep up (mostly)
*Finished my first chapter book
*Began attending SCBWI workshops and meeting new authors and making new friends
*Completed the PiBoIdMo Challenge
*Donated at least 10 car loads of items to Jr. League thrift shop
*Threw out a few roll-offs full of garbage and moldy memories. :-(
*Organized a Writer's Camp at our school
*Found my old journals from high school
*Visited London and Edinburgh
*Won many top sales awards at convention for personal and team sales

It was a busy year! I look forward to what 2012 has to bring. Hopefully it won't involve water.

  1. Wow - that's quite a year! Lots of wonderful things :) Asberger's can be a challenge, but there's a lot more information than there used to be - good luck!
