It's been a productive year and I can't believe it's almost over. Can you? 2009 felt like 12 days, not 12 months!
I'm finishing up my last book of the year. I've got roughly two chapters to go. Then I'll spend the remainder of the month on edits. Some of my first readers have already started to read pieces of it. With this particular book, I experimented with a new genre so we'll see if my first readers like it. They certainly loved the idea of a 12-year old boy astronaut. Now I get to see if the book measures up.
All in all, I wrote two books (one is currently on submission) and almost finished a third. This year was a year of experimentation with new genres to stretch my writing skills. I've had a blast writing new characters, different kinds of plots, and generally just exercising my writing skills. My karma must have been good too because I was inundated (and blessed) with a mountain of freelance work.
I'm looking forward to 2010 but I'm going to be sorry to see such a great year end.
I wonder what I'll write next year? I've already got an idea for my next book creeping around my brain...
