2011 was an amazing year. I won't ramble about it... but I've met some of my favorite people and got involved in some awesome things (like horses!). Also it's been good writing-wise. Yeah...

What's on my mind for the next is, first and foremost, YOUR VISIT, Twin!! I also just got a job, so THAT'S on my mind. And also I'm going to see my back doctor in January and we're going to take x-rays to find out if all my hard work the past year has paid off or not. *bites fingers* ALSO, I turn 18 in the coming year.

Phew! LOTS of big stuff on the horizon. It's exciting, and a tiny bit daunting. But that's how I like life. XD

I think 2011 was just awesome for everyone because Write On! was created and so we all have this wonderful new community. Smile

My visit, YES. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
And I hope your job will be awesome, and that doctor's visit goes well? How soon after my visit is that?
Man. You're gonna be so old. Razz

I agree. I wouldn't be too happy if life wasn't a little bit "unknown horizons"-y, either.

2011 was great for too. I think I've learnt a lot more in the past year than I have in the other years. It's also began my writing break through. I haven't been able to finish a novel for as long as I can remember and the coolest I got o one was almost at the end and then find something majorly wrong. I should stop rambling. Oh, and it was the year I found Write On!, Figment, and Inkpop which have helped me with my writing and encouraged me to keep going.

2012 means that I'm a year older. I plan to finish my novel, and write a sequel, do some more blogging, and make some new friends.

@Taylor- I'm glad 2011 was so good for you! I understand the writing breakthrough bit completely! Without Write On! I would probably still be an on-off writer. *loves WO!* ^^

Hahah. True, true!

Thanks! I hope so too. I leave the 21st, so it's a week or so after your visit. *jumps up and down* Speaking of which, you're in the airport as I type.

I know, I know. Positively ancient. Razz It's a little bit frightening.

That's awesome! I love writing breakthroughs. (Nice to meet you, by the way! I don't think we've been introduced. I'm Maggie.) It's amazing how writing sites help keep you going, isn't it?

Sounds like good plans to me! Good luck with all of it. Very Happy

For me, the first 1/2 of 2011 was good and then it all went downhill from there.

In terms of writing, though, this was what I did: I finished my third novel. I revised the heck out of that novel. I asked for feedback on my writing in various sites/blogs/forums and my writing got trampled (in a good way?). I got critique partners. It got more or less beaten up, again (but for the better). I started reading/critiquing four different manuscripts (not including my own) at the same time (I'm still doing this now). I MET YOU LOVELY PEOPLE. <3 I got to chat with agents. Very Happy I got a partial request through Write On Con. Two months later, I got a rejection from that request plus other rejections that were frustratingly all form letter rejections. I took a break from writing to REALLY finish up college apps.

And now in 2012, I feel like I'm on square one again (except post-college-application-trauma and pre-college-admission-results-angst haha). I'm currently finishing up critiques for my CPs and also waiting for them to finish the revised version of my novel before I start querying again. Honestly, I'm starting to lose hope for that novel since besides the form letters, the only agent-response I got from it said that she didn't think it would sell. I'm currently in the no-man's-land between totally shelving one project to move on to the next (my NaNo) but mostly I'm just taking a breather after a very stressful 2011. I'm planning on having my NaNo ready to go on submissions by April.

Oh, and I hope you guys are having LOADS of fun with Constance's visit! Very Happy And Constance, we ARE getting old. Egads. Suspect

@Lyla- MAN, you have been busy! I hope 2012 isn't so stressful. O_o
The trip was wonderful. I'm sad I'm back in Texas. Sad
