This one is for the IWSG for December. For me, because it contains my birthday as well as all the usual year ending stuff, December tends to be about looking back to think about what I've done in the year. Often, I wonder if I could have done more, but this year is actually quite a weird one:
On the one hand, I've probably written fewer books than for the last three years or so, because I gave up working for a book packager this time last year. My volume has dropped considerably as a result. I've also found that it's quite hard to break back into the academic life from the outside, which is annoying because done right, it could be exactly the sort of regular work that complements my writing.
But I've still done quite a bit this year. I worked on three collaborations with Eve Paludan (Witchy Business, Witch and Famous, Witch Way Out), I wrote five or so romance novels with a client I'm not going to name. I've worked at editing a few novels, helped to produce outlines for a couple, produced one major piece of non-fiction, gotten thirty thousand words through another... oh, and in the meantime I've finished one novel of my own (The Glass, which I'm planning on putting out myself some time at the start of next year), and got through the first draft of another (although it feels like it's not quite the book I want it to be yet).
That is, sort of a quieter year for me, but it's about where I want it to be. How did your writing year go?
