I feel as if 2014 has flown by at a ridiculously fast rate. I suppose we all feel that way but for me, with moving states, starting a new job and heading home to Ireland for a couple of months it’s been a pretty quick year.
I’m hoping 2015 moves by a little slower, savor it a little.
Over the year though my writing has moved forward. I’ve managed to have more stories published which was great. I’ve finished another manuscript and finally started editing. I was hoping to have the book finished by Christmas this year but if I rushed it and not had a professional edit on it, the book would have suffered so I’ve held it back for a little while.
Through my blog, Twitter and Facebook I’ve met some really great people. It a really cathartic process meeting people online who share similar interests and are so willing to reach out. Setting up my blog in March of this year was one of the best things I’ve done as a writer.
2015, I really want to publish some work myself. I’ve loved having stories published by others in various anthologies but I want to take the plunge myself, sink and swim like everyone else out there in the indie world. Finding and editor and a cover designer is something else I want to do and get it right of the bat, hopefully. I bought davidjdelaney.net which means I have no excuse not to set up an author site so that’s project number… I lost count.
So it’s been a busy 2014 and I think 2015 might shape up to be a little busier but I’m looking forward to it.
How’s 2015 shaping up for you?
