I've been holding off on doing a year-end round up, because I knew I'd have two, possibly three stories out in December. I don't *think* the third will make it out before the end of the year, so I can go ahead and sum up, because, well. . . it makes me feel less like I wasted the year to make an accounting. :)
What did I do this year?
I had my first book of poetry published by an actual press--The Gates of Never!
21 poems published this year--down from last year's explosion of poems, but I wrote tons, especially in November. I'm looking forward to seeing many poems go live next year, and I have two in particular that will go live at markets I have only dreamed about before, so, that's a big positive.
Story-wise, it's been a great year!
13 short stories (including a novella) published in this year! I never thought I'd be able to say something like that!
