New Year Review

September seems much more like a new year than January ever does. So... it's a good time to recap what I've done in the past (almost) two years, since I've left the wonderful corporate world to focus on writing.

Drafts written: 5 (four fiction, one non-fiction)

Books completed: 3 (2 fiction, one non-fiction)

Books published: er... none (yet - but one to be published next month!)

Rejections received: I am certainly NOT going to count them but let's just say there's a sizable pile

Wine consumed: On a good day - one glass; on a bad day - half a bottle. Luckily I don't have many bad days!

Weight Gained: Surprisingly, I've lost weight since I've left the corporate world, although I'm sure I move less (some days I barely leave my desk). It's a mystery but I'm certainly not complaining!

Money earned: What? You can earn money writing?

Job satisfaction: 100%

Congratulations on your upcoming book release. It will be a fun but busy time for you.

Killer Career came out at the beginning of August and I still am playing catch up.
