Assess Your Achievements

My writing career is different than it was last year.

One year ago:

I did not know how to blog.

I was struggling to find a system--for my office, for my writing, for submitting.

I had only just begun to write and submit articles (my first article was submitted June 1, 2008).


I hold myself to a higher standard.

I query more, get paid more and respect myself as an able writer.

I write more and prepare less.

I enjoy the possibilities of a developing platform.

Next Year:

I will be amazed at how far my journey has taken me, just as I am today.

Take a moment to reflect upon your achievements and enjoy the realization that hard work pays off with time. You deserve a pat on the back!

  1. I think blogging has made me take giant leaps forward as a writer. After one year of blogging my writing became a lot better and I started winning contests. Now I'm taking it one step forward and developing a new literary magazine on motherhood: The Motherhood Muse. Would you be interested in writing a post for its blog? And please consider submitting a piece to the e-Zine, too!
