2019 Year in Review

2019 Year in Review

With only two more days until the end of 2019, I wanted to reflect on how much I’ve grown as a writer this year. Below are the covers of anthologies I’ve been accepted into this year, excluding a few without covers and published online. I was finally able to take all those long nights of staying up way too late to write once the kids were in bed, dreaming of being published in multiple books, and turn that dream into a reality.


I didn’t have a set goal in mind when I began this year, but with 32 acceptances (ranging from poetry to drabbles to flash fiction to short stories) in over 27 anthologies with 15 different publishers, I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved. Not only that, but I’ve met and gotten to work with so many talented people in the writing world who’ve inspired and helped me grow, and for them I’m incredibly thankful.


In 2020, I hope to continue to have more words published, but my ultimate goal is to get the novel I’ve let lie around half-written for far too long, collecting dust in its lonely yellow folder on my desktop, finished and ready to ship around for publishing.


Last but not least, thank you to all my family and friends who’ve supported me and my writing this year, whether it be from purchasing an anthology I’m a part of, reading and critiquing my work, letting me bounce ideas off them, or even just telling me, in one way or another, that they believe in my writing ability. It means the world to me!


Happy New Year! 🙂
