2013: In Review

2013-year-in-review1As I did a fairly comprehensive review of my writer’s goals for 2013 in October I won’t bore you with a repeat. However, I do want to offer some advice:

Make your goals for 2014 as specific and achievable as possible.

As an example, see how I set my writing goals for 2013. Of all those that I set myself, only one has not been accomplished – to prepare NaNo#1 for beta readers – and this is because it was far too grand and obscure. I’m not going to make that mistake again.

So, as a little review of 2013, here’s how my year shaped up through blog posts and milestones:

All in all, it’s been a pretty good year. I feel more confident as a writer and I’ve branched out in my interests through both being involved in Literature Festivals and connecting regularly with other writers via blogs and Twitter. I can only hope that 2014 will be just as successful and will see me grow as a writer even more than I did this year. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing how it all turns out!

  1. Cat, I’m new to your blog – I think it’s terrific – the problems and thoughts you have about the writing process, and trying to write, certainly resonate with me. And the way you write about them is great too – I now look forward to your new posts -keep it up! And keep going with the writing. Also, I just love your cat picture – how on earth did you do it?

    • Hi Shelia,

      A big thanks for following the blog and for your very lovely comments. Sometimes us bloggers need a reminder as to why we share our thoughts with the ‘internet’ and your comment has done just that for me. I’m so pleased that you enjoy my posts! I’ll be smiling all day now. 🙂

      Not sure which cat picture you are referring to? Most of the images I get from around the web (providing there are no copyright infringements where possible).

      Good luck with your own writing. I hope 2014 turns out to be a successful year for you!

      Take Care, Cat x

    • Happy New Year backatcha! 🙂 Hope 2014 brings you and yours health, wealth and happiness.
      Thanks for stopping by. I like knowing you’re out there reading (checking up on me! ;))
      Take Care, Cat x

    • Thanks! It was quite energising to see the year in review and how much I’d accomplished and learnt along the way! I’d recommend it to other bloggers as an exercise in reflection.
      Take care, and Happy New Year, Cat x
