2013 in Review and What’s New for 2014

What a year. This time last year I had no clue what the year would hold. It’s been a time of growth, the end of seasons, and some heartache.

I posted two goals last year: “lose weight (which will require I get off my backside and exercise), and take the plunge by sending out my writing to agents.” I’m sad to say that while I did lose fifteen pounds in the spring, I gained much of it back over the summer and fall, and I never did get my writing sent to agents.

However, I DID do a few things:

  • sold my horses – bittersweet
  • sold a novel – to be released in 2014
  • read over 200 new books – I lost track after August, so this is just an estimate
  • started my 16th year of homeschooling
  • went to Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference – had an absolutely wonderful time and met some new friends
  • joined Writing Prompts & Thoughts & Ideas… Oh My! as a co-blogger
  • found a wonderful critique group
  • loved my family
  • tried some new recipes – some winners, some losers
  • made new friends
  • started a Twitter account – @GingerS219
  • started a Pinterest account – GingerSolomon – it’s still really new, so there’s not much there
Some things I hope to do in 2014:
  • laugh more
  • love better
  • live life to the fullest
  • lose weight
  • lift up the glorious name of Jesus without reservation
  • leave behind the insecurities and send the MS I’ve been working on for eight months

  1. I Love your intentions for 2014. I’m proud of the way I finished my caregiving job and became more accountable in my writing. And for 2014, my goal is to become more prolific in my writing…and paid for it! Blessings!
