I know most folks do their year in review at the end of the year but I was busy holidaying in Florida so I decided to leave it for earlier this year. We are just into the first week of the year and already I cannot wait to see what this year has in store.
Last year was wonderful and to think I had just started writing again on a whim! All year through I have been able to add writing assignments to my repertoire, mostly for magazines in Atlanta, both print and online. By mid-year, I was proofreading for two magazines and by the end of the year I was editing e-books, two in fact, and have a third one lined up in the next few days.
The more I delved into writing and editing and proofreading, the more resources and helpful people I came across that motivated me and inspired me to pursue this full-time. It has been an experience worth signing up for.
I was also able to establish the Atlanta chapter of Ed2010 - this is a completely voluntary position and I am excited for our first speaker session today. Great event and we have 3 more in the year - April 10th, July 10th and Oct 9th. You can check ed2010.com and look up the Atlanta city chapter page for information.
I took a slight detour from work in the summer - a small surgery and 2 trips to Europe took up the bounty of it but I love the fact that I can now do all my work online, in the comfort of my home or even a coffee shop, and that gives me time to focus on my personal pursuits as well.
2012 was definitely a year with its set of ups and downs but one that was welcome, and I can't wait to see what 2013 brings along. If you have a year in review post then I would love to read and share in your journey so please feel free to leave a link in the comments for this post.
