cayleighstickler: Black cat walking through the snow leaving a trail of paw prints (Default)
 I've been thinking a lot about 2016. It's been a trying year with the charged political climate the way it is, celebrity deaths, personal friend deaths, and other little hiccups along the way. I've been reading posts by people who just want this year to end because it was so horrible, and I almost feel guilty for saying that, for me, it was a good year. 

It's the year that I finally achieved my lifelong dream of being an author. It's been the only dream of mine that has stuck around from childhood, and writing has been something of a coping mechanism for me through the years. AND I FINALLY PUBLISHED A STORY. Actually, two stories in two separate anthologies. 

In 2017, I'm working on self-publishing my own stories, novellas to start. I've gotten a taste of the publishing world, and I'm hooked. I also want to write a full-length novel, edit it, and write a query letter (or two) to send to agents and/or publishers. This is a terrifying (but thrilling) step for me to even think about taking. 

Overall, though, this year has been trying, but I've come out on the other side victorious.
